For those wondering why .ws, which is actually the domain suffix for Samoa? That is because emojis are not accepted on domains such as .com, .net, and .org.

Durex Dual Screen Ads

Last year, Durex UK created a new way for its viewers to interact with its TV ad. Viewers who used the Durex Explore mobile app [iTunes or Google Play] while watching the ad on their TV or computer, got a steamy alternative on their second screen.

Then on Valentine's Day this year, they released a steamy radio spot that also used the same Durex Explore app to provide listeners with a similar steamy video experience on their smartphone or tablet. To exprience it click here.
