Google Tells A Story

Google. It practically runs the world, so there’s really no need for an introduction. Among all the great things Google does, storytelling isn’t one that most people think of. But they excel at it. There was the adorable and incredibly romantic “Parisian Love” spot that aired during Super Bowl XLIV. The heartwarming “Dear Sophie” video for Google Chrome was a viral hit earlier this year. And now, Google Chrome has a new commercial about the rise of Frank Restaurant in Austin, Texas.

It really adds a layer of legitimacy to this ad when you realize these are real people and a real restaurant (which I’m sure will see a big bump in business). Will it convince people to change to Google Chrome? Not necessarily. I feel like people used web browsers based on familiarity, and they’ll use whatever they know. But Google Chrome’s market share is growing. And as someone who also appreciates advertising for the artistic aspects, Google is top-notch, as always.
