Panera's Forever Flatbread ad is fitting for the Valentine's Day season. Styled as typical romantic comedy trailer, this ad opens as a narrator explains the coincidental circumstances that led to two people meeting. Of course, it involves Panera's Flatbread pizza offering.
The split screen features a man and woman approaching the counter at Panera, both unaware of the other. As the employee calls out the order, both parties reach for the flatbread, having coincidently placed the same order. The ad hilariously over exaggerates romantic comedy tropes, and features a montage of instantly recognizable scenes. The ad quickly changes tone when one of the characters betrays the other by taking the last slice of Panera's Flatbread pizza.
