Google Search Stories

Google’s third quarter TV ad shown during the 2010 Super Bowl, “Parisian Love”, is part of a series of online advertisements, “Search Stories”. Seven stories feature the Google Search Engine to tell moving stories of changed lives. “Paris”, a 52 second clip, tells the story of a man who uses his search engine to charm, communicate with and marry a French woman. The video was reworked into a 60 second commercial to be shown during the Super Bowl. Read on to watch the video, along with the other six released by Google.

      Do you mean “didn’t advertise on TV”? Google has a huge number of online short films promoting its products, and put some of the Chrome short films on television in 2009.
