I generally hate insurance companies, but the commercials for CNP are always stunning, showing different eras, generations, times of life, and they really make you wish that a reputable insurance company could be your partner in life.
They use the same music every time, so it makes anybody in France think of the insurance company instantly.
Here are 5 of the commercials combined into one video:
The French press was snickering at the fact that the 'prince' is model Willy Cartier, who isn't exactly known for having great interest in the ladies, and the unlikely blonde 'princess' is Russian model Natalia Vodianova to hook in the new target market -- the BRICS countries.

I like the way the camera lovingly lingers on the horse's butt.
Re your comment, Lizzy ~ ya think? ;D
This commercial was made for Piaget. I came across it after hearing a Melody Gardot song, then looking her up on youtube. (must go put her in New Favorites) It's another hokey story-telling ad. I guess the young guy getting roses must be conveying love-struck-by-Melanie, but it looks as though he's smitten with the rose seller.
Oh, that Piaget ad is even stranger. I agree with your assessment of the lover and his object of affection. What is even stranger is the fact that she is wearing dark glasses and has a cane. Is she blind? If so, how does she manage to get those huge false eyelashes on straight? And there is some sort of murder/suicide à trois at the end? And how did they manage to make roses look so singularly unattractive?
I just saw the most horrifyingly inappropriate commercial in the history of the world, so this is obviously not the correct place to post it, but I am not going to start a special thread for it. I can't believe that it was accepted to be shown on televison.
Well, people who bet on horses online are probably not in the highest percentile of refinement. Thinking more of that commercial, though, I wonder the age of the person who conceived it. Particularly in France compared to the U.S., I can't imagine that very many younger people could spontaneously understand the reference.
