    err. what did we just watch?
    am i the only one that didn’t understand it. Lynxx, oreka, beverly nd ebuka canoodling and wetin come happen? whats the story line?
    geez! someone enlighten me pls. how does L’espace come in?
    Blind celebrity endorsement,if you ask me. we saw the celebrities face,but nothing was said or shown about the brand itself except the logo shown randomly at the beginning and end of the film.
    Who the hell was the director?

      the director just did opax!!! this commercial makes absolutely no sense…if you go by what a tv commercial is supposed to deliver, which is for the consumers to take action…tis is a mere short film or some sort of hype material…not a commercial…thank you!

      LMAO! Here’s what I got from this and what I think they’re trying to say: They were all dressed really well. So I guess the way you dress brings some sort of class into your life. I think they emphasize the clothing thing when Beverly can’t decide on what to wear. Or maybe I’m just trying too hard to understand, lol. Either way, they all look good and it’s nice entertainment. You may not get the video but you’ll probably remember it the next time you hear L’espace. I guess it’s just a teaser to get people to know their name.

    Guys need to go back to the drawing board and add some narration. Had to guess at what they were advertising. A nice hotel? Retsurant? Marriage counselling… Could be anything

    • L.A Chick

      December 23, 2011 at 12:03 pm

      Totally agree! Hot guys and pretty babes but based on this video no one can tell what the heck they are advertising!

      December 23, 2011 at 9:59 pm

      Gotta love how we’re all professionals now,everyone attempting to critique media like experts haha 🙂 (I’m not assuming that you’re not a professional o btw lol).

      Despite any flaws, one thing is certain : This advert has effectively delivered the name ” L’Espace ” to Nigerian Cyber Citizenry and maybe they indeed set out working against being put in a specific box. This allows the advert to be relevant long after L’Espace may have moved on from their initial entrepreneurial endeavour (fashion and lifestyle retail) to another.

      Also, like many lifestyle outlets, they’ve endeavoured to transcend the label of being just a retail store.

    • non professional opinion

      December 24, 2011 at 11:40 am

      The end product is for the consumer and the consumer is saying the message is lost on them. Long term objectives aside, consumers need to know what they are being invited to spend their money on TODAY. L’espace can produce the “marriage counseling ” advert when that becomes part of their offering.

      your point being o_O

    • yankeeboy

      December 27, 2011 at 2:27 pm

      So what is L’espace and what exactly are they advertising? I’m a layman so I will hit up Wiki for a definition:

      “Advertising is a form of communication used to encourage or persuade an audience (viewers, readers or listeners) to continue or take some new action.”

      And the resulting action we should take? Continue to appreciate Orekas utter and undisputed sexiness?

    • Nma

      December 24, 2011 at 2:19 am

      LOL @ Marriage Counseling. I agee with u tho. I actually watched the video before reading Bella’s description and i thought it was an advert for a resort….plus the name (L’escape) made it seem more like so.

      Nice concept…but it needs a bit more focus.

    Beverley naya is so pretty! She looked gorgeous in the yellow dress, but I agree with other comments, I don’t see what the advert has to do with the fashion? P.s lynxxx is a fineeeeeee boy! Confam utunuuuuu!

    December 23, 2011 at 11:21 am

    I don’t know what that was about but I guess we’ll find out soon

  12. MelonX

    December 23, 2011 at 11:38 am

    Good idea, but they should’ve rehearsed a little more before taping. The wardrobe scene could have been better in slow motion. The host couple didn’t act natural. 🙂

  13. Written

    December 23, 2011 at 12:54 pm

    Ah! Just a little bit of tidying up and this wouldve been perfect. So they get all dressed up to….??? And the end looks like they didn’t have enough flutes even though it could be that the host lady doesn’t drink… Good job still.

  14. speakeasy

    December 23, 2011 at 1:02 pm

    Nice……. i like the mystery behind it all… terms of u not really knowing what its about! sometimes things dont always look good in black n white…….. and i hv to say Lynxxx is soooo manly!!! he seems so strong and mature….. i actually want to meet this dude!

    kudos to the LPM crew

    December 23, 2011 at 1:05 pm

    I love it! Beautiful people and fashion. All Nigerian??? Beverly Naya and that Lynxxx baba *fans self* HAWWWTNESS

  16. Radical

    December 23, 2011 at 1:12 pm

    Beautiful…Al that’s missing is a tag line….would have sealed it all together amazingly. “L’Espace…..were shopping comes to life” or “L’Espace….your wardrobes companion”

    i love naija…same 5-7 people, get all the opportunities and overexposure. you must roll in a certain click to get opporunties in that lagos else you are almost hopeless. that said, these folks thinks that just slapping Ebuka, Lynxx, Oreka in there is dope enough. errrrm…epic fail. i dont get what you are advertising besides showing us your already overexposed friends. try again. toodles!

    December 24, 2011 at 12:03 am

    It’s not that complicated. Cute people wearing cool stuff and hanging out. The music was awful, the acting was not to great. But the concept is pretty clear. Don’t why people are complaining about confusion.

  34. AnonymousPesin

    December 24, 2011 at 3:21 am

    Damn! Hot men! errr comment about the commercial? all I see is hot men…..

    • trickalist

      December 24, 2011 at 6:28 pm

      yes that’s what they hope y’all will notice. as usual, some of you see familiar faces and your thirst for quality and objectivity flies out of the window

    • AnonymousPesin

      December 28, 2011 at 6:28 am

      Please elaborate…. I’m not based in Naija so I could care less about L’Espace (no offense). I come to bellanaija to feast my eyes on what’s going on at home and YES! Hot men. I could care less about familiar faces, quality and objectivity for now.

  36. Ms. jayee

    December 24, 2011 at 9:16 am

    Okay so are they trying to depict a lifestyle other that just clothes? It’s neither here nor there. I agree with someone who said they would have rehearsed more and maybe they would have added more “flesh” to the story line. But in all, it’s a new direction for the Nigerian fashion/entertainment scene. Well done.

    Sorry 2 say d advert is kinda daft, didn’t get d relation to fashion, but it was good and lovely to look at, beautiful cast, Oreos is actually attractive, well done to the production team, but I just can’t relate this to d concept of lespace. Hope my feedback wasn’t toooo harsh

  39. Love for Africa

    December 24, 2011 at 7:05 pm

    Seriously??!! I mean, where is the branding?How does this relate to a shop?Where is the promise of a great retail experience?Girls, you really need to pull this ad and fire your branding consultant…this is not doing your amazing business idea any favours at all…

    December 24, 2011 at 7:11 pm

    @non professional opinion … You said it right. If the consumer does not “get it” then any $10million is as good as a hanging pant. As much as BN readers (myself included) sometimes air opinions just for the sake of airing something, when people honestly say they cannot understand a message, then perhaps the messenger needs to reword/ rephrase.

  48. obi-talk

    December 25, 2011 at 10:11 pm

    From the ad I understand that it is trying to portray a certain lifestyle, clothes or fashion but it doesn’t relate to anything shopping experience though.

    However I do not know if the ladies read all of these comments (which is sort of public opinion) before they launch on TV. I’m sure they can improve on this ad.

  49. Capt Naya

    December 28, 2011 at 4:26 pm

    LOOOL I’m tempted to call anyone that didn’t understand this ad a Dundee United fan…L’Espace is a fashion retail store….the ladies were trying out n displaying clothes from there…..simple, short, on point…a 4 year old in yankee will even understand it *sigh*

    • lami

      December 29, 2011 at 5:12 pm

      why not have both ladies go to a L’Espace store and pick out dresses from various collection in d store for dinner with their men, and since u av so much time on your hands you could show d ladies get ready and show each man’s reaction after he sees his lady. End it with four of them on a dinner table toasting to the “good life” and a catch phase at the end like ” L’Espace, Love, Passion,Fashion……”

  50. ennkayy

    December 28, 2011 at 5:36 pm

    The dresses looked horrible especially the yellow, what’s up with super skinny chiks in over sized clothes? the first girl had nappy roots – did not understand the hair.. then the advert? no sense no direction…

    ok, this is just a waste of time,great video quality but horrible storyline as in this is too bad, it lacks creativity!!! totally literal nonsense. Plus Lynxxx stop been hawt since he hit that girl…. –

    Great video quality but the storyline lacks creativity, i mean it makes no sense at all. The clothes look very very tacky. lynxxx stopped been hawt when he hit that girl in his video. Its all wrong wrong wrong.
