Perhaps the Scots know best. According to the Scotsman, they prefer sex over chocolate.

Is it because European advertising is sexier than North American advertising?

If Valentine's is about love, romance and feeling sexy, why are the advertisements so boring?

Love is never boring.

That's why the AdHack community decided to spice things up this Valentine's Day.

AdHack is a community of designers, photographers and creators who are pushing the advertising envelope.

The Assignment:
Create an ad for the best romance item ever received.

The Chocolate Love Ad Concept:
Giant Ant Media says "Pretty simple. We wanted to make a connection between chocolate and romance, and chocolate as an aphrodisiac but without using people. By using the chocolates, the video is still racy, which we wanted, but not crude and still retains a 'cuteness' about it. This video could work as an ad for a chocolate company (Purdy's/Lindt), or even for a brand that sells 'romantic' goods (Oh My/Kama Sutra)."

"Chocolate Love" is a short, stop-motion animation, shot on a light box. 367 Frames.
