This is really poor. Titanic is not a classic. Also the toys used aren't the best.

I don't believe in the characters as a couple really. Bad casting. Would have been much better with a bear and a really, dohey-eyed, fluffy sheep. Sorry ... am getting a bit ...

It looks like the bear is trying to push the bunny of the edge :P No I like it. it has a tendering cuteness about it which you cant resist. Toy love at its best

...and let the poets cry themselves to sleep. And all their tearfull words would turn back into steam

My biggest problem is that the ship looks nothing like the Titanic. If you're going to recreate a scene from Titanic with toys, stay true to the film you're recreating. This is obviously a pirate's ship.

Other than that, the cuteness factor works for me. Although, I agree with some of the people above that Titanic is not a classic. Perhaps someday. As well, making a ton of money doesn't make a movie a classic.

It doesn't have to be an exact replica of Titanic. Why a Pirate Ship? I think it's a toy you might actually be able to find at ToysRus, unlike a Titanic Ship. Boys like to play pirates, it's a popular toy. I am sure you won't find a Titanic ship at ToysRus. Tell me if you do :)

Apart from that, how will you try to convince me that the highest-grossing film of all time is not a classic? It's been 8 years now. I guess that's old enough. It's classic enough for kids and teenagers.

Unfortunately, neither of us can prove the other wrong, as this is very subjective. However, in my opinion,

being old and grossing a lot of money are not reasons to label a movie a classic. It might make it memorable for those reasons, but doesn't define it as a classic.

Let's think about why Titanic made so much money - because it was good? no. because of young girls who went to see it 12 times to see Leonardo Dicaprio over and over and over. Placing him in that role was almost a gimmick to pull in lots of money, and therefore, I would never label it a classic.

But that's just me, many people would argue that something that makes a lot of money must be good. However, I'm someone who disagrees with that logic. Two words: American Idol

i think u miss the point.
It doesnt matter if u think titanic is classic or not. toys r us sells titanic as a classic, and seeing as this is a real ad for a real brief the team is just doing what the client asked for.

I laughed the minute I saw it, which made me pay more attention to what the ad was for. I think it's great that they used somewhat cheesy toys since they're recreating a pretty cheesy screen moment.
