Can You Please Watch This Romantic Turkish Ice Cream Ad, and Tell Me What’s Going On in It?

A little help here

So, here's a lovely little four-minute love story from Unilever's Cornetto ice cream brand in Turkey. And you're probably smarter than I am and can figure out what's actually going on in it. I've watched it at least five times, and I'm still confused.

I think it's kind of adorable and features the product in an unobtrusive way. And it's also a nice follow-up to last year's viral video from the brand.

It opens with the main character, a good looking guy, catching the eyes of the other main character, a good looking girl. I get that part. They spend the rest of the ad trying to find each other via social media. It's all set to a track by Turkish pop star Yalın, who also makes an appearance … as a matchmaking fairy godfather. Maybe?

I can't really follow the plot, but it ends with the good-looking couple finishing off their Cornetto ice cream cones and making out while Yalın looks on approvingly. I don't get that, either, but it's so cheesy it's cute.

I also find that the ad is much better if you mute the audio and play some Vivrant Thing instead. Your mileage may vary depending on your musical tastes.
