Ad smackdown II: Olympics vs Chinese New Year vs Valentine's Day

Once again, we've created an epic (and admittedly silly) ad battle. You decide the winner. Today's competitors: JD.com, Godiva and RBH Bank.

Ad smackdown II: Olympics vs Chinese New Year vs Valentine's Day

Yesterday's epic Ad Smackdown proved so popular (in our own minds at least) that we had to repeat it again today. Once again, we've chosen one worthy competitor to represent each of the big holidays and events happening this week, and you get to choose the winner.

As for yesterday's battle, AirAsia's 'Pawsperous', a Chinese New Year video featuring a furry fellow who eagerly awaits a family member's return home, is leading the voting. It's not too late to get your vote in.   

But onward to today's smackdown. Three ads enter. One ad...gets some small measure of completely unscientific recognition. 

1. Representing Valentine's Day: 'I love you (but I love me more)', for Godiva Japan by Mori and Stink Studios

(For context, please see Godiva challenges the soullessness of Valentine's Day in Japan.

2. Representing Chinese/Lunar New Year: 'Joy story', for JD.com by 180.ai with Passion Pictures

3. Representing the Olympics: 'Perseverance', for RHB Bank by FCB Kuala Lumpur
