Barbar wins Valentine's Day ads

So I suppose this is what is called "it came right out of left field". A brand not known to advertise outright wins Valentine's Day ads! Barbar, a joint that sells cocktails and sandwiches - albeit good-quality ones - goes out with an ad that shows a tape (or rather one of those 80s ubiquitous "cassettes") with a title "the Valentine's cocktail". Cocktail is the slang name for a mix of songs. And cocktail is the fruit chops drink they sell. Easy! Yes so incredibly fantastic. Kitsch goes a long way - now try finding a radio tape player that still works!!
PS: There is a small typo it is "Valentine's" not Valentines, but I am not going to let a small error ruin my joy for the ad!
