Mobile phone company Orange recently released a promotion called Orange Cineday that involves a two-for-one ticket deal on Tuesdays. This essentially means you can bring a friend -- or date -- to the movies with no charge.
To promote the Orange Cineday deal, Orange teamed up with advertising agency Publicis Conseil for this awesome spot. At first glance, the commercial looks like a movie trailer. It's based on a made-up French movie called Hussars. Throughout the trailer, you'll notice a man in a green sweatshirt who doesn't seem to fit the rest of the characters and theme of the movie.
At the end you realize that the main character brought his friend along because the Orange mobile's Orange Cineday promotion allows him to.
