To me, there’s nothing else other than some strong allusions to Pride and Prejudice (or Austen in general) that will make me buy a product. Commercials, trailers, advertisements… you name it, if it has Pride and Prej in it I will undoubtedly manage to acquire it. Especially if the ad is good.
I have been trying to angle all of my Facebook ads towards anything Austen/bookish. So for all the annoying iLasik advertisements that pop up, I press the thumbs down and say ‘uninteresting’ or one of the other synonyms they let you choose from. I finally had a little break through with this, slightly, Pride and Prejudice related advertisement, that is painfully similar to the last:
I accidentally came across a video on youtube called “Pride and Prejudice- Lizzie’s Diary, read by Jennifer Ehle”. If you missed the video when it was up here, then I apologise. The video actually had a really good picture of Lizzy and Jane as the platform for the audio. Unfortunately, although the video is still about, I have taken it down as I was contacted by Jane Odiwe (complete Janeite and artist) via Twitter asking me where I found the video as the image is hers and they hadn’t gotten permission. With that being said, if anyone knows where one can get a copy of ‘Lizzy’s diary’- I would be very grateful. I can’t seem to find it anywhere.
