so stupid. tries to be all emotional and touching but it fails hard.

what's the point of writing the email in the first place?

Too much build-up for not enough punch.

It seems like they try to make us think she's breaking up with him at the start, but then the fact that she travels all that way gives it away.

zzzzzzzzzzzz

Decent attempt, but too sentimental for the sector. Put a bar of chocolate in the pack shot, and there you have it, an ad for two clients.

Sorry but it doesn't work on me. Cheesy and easy. When i saw "surf school Jack" on the t-shirt, i was hoping everything going to end with a nice unexpected Volksy joke. But nothing happened, just a bad acting surfing teacher.

Some technology connects us, the best technology brings us together. I think this is perfect. And, what else could be a car selling?

Some people here just comment for the sake of commenting... if you don't have a decent critique simply don't waste your time writing it.
Great approach in this campaign. I'm not a fan of cars, but I surely got the desire to buy one.
