Here’s a play on the conventional boy-meets-girl with a commentary on love and commercialism.

The creators say that that the project was inspired by the idea of living inside of a billboard, while they were both driving to lunch one day. David says more of the plot, “I think what made it stick so well for us was that the field of advertising was so ripe for satire.

“We are constantly being bombarded by advertisements which are essentially messages that somebody, somewhere has thought up in order to influence our actions and emotions. We wanted to find a way to wrap that concept inside a traditional love story without it being too heavy handed in it’s message or too sentimental.”
