The Gap is really feeling the love for their Holiday 2012 ad campaign. “Love comes in every shade,” they declare, and do their best to exemplify that with ads showing people expressing the kind of love they have for each other. All while wearing holiday duds from the Gap, of course.
Actress Diana Garcia And Musician Greg Rogove: In Love
Director Gia Coppola And Actress Nathalie Love: Best Friend Love
“This is quite harmonious, not bad,” ChristyLeReveur noted.
“I've always loved these Gap ads. So sweet,” ALAUU commented.
Abadonna called the campaign “so emotional and colorful, fantastic.”
Actor Jack Huston And His Dog Orso: Puppy Love
Michael J. Fox And His Wife Tracy Pollan: True Love
The fact that the ads portray relationships between real people (for the most part – the New Normal cast pic may be the odd man out here), really adds to the impact of the images. Forum members were particularly drawn to the ad featuring rapper Nas and his father, blues musician Olu Dara. It’s nice to know that we’re not looking at pictures of models faking it for the camera, for once.
Musician Rufus Wainwright And Artistic Director Jörn Weisbrodt: Married Love
The Atomics: Sibling Love
'The New Normal' Cast: Modern Love
Rapper Nas And His Father, Blues Musician Olu Dara: Fatherly Love
Even if you don’t yet feel like the best way to express your love is by dressing up everyone on your Christmas list in Gap clothing, the ads are nice to look at.
