The actress is around 30, looks smart and intelligent. Looks in good shape and health, which is considered to be important for the target audience group. The use of black and white colours of the silk sheets and dress aim to provide sophistication. The colours also aim to allow consumers to make an association between the black and white silk and the black and white packaging of the product. The music is quirky and sophisticated as well.
