I see a tall slender woman with long black hair, wearing a scarlet dress. Her back is to me, and by the way she's standing, I can see she's tense. She hears a noise and whips her head around, her hair flying around her lovely face in slow motion. What she sees terrifies her, I can see it in her eyes. She turns back around and begins to run, still in slow motion. The screen pauses. It turns into monochrome. Camera pans out on the image and a voice over says, "A mystery no one can solve. A memory you know you will never forget."

Some words have a tendency to form images in your head, irrespective of their meaning. All this, just because I thought of the word velvet.

This is like that annoying new Dark Fantasy ad, only much much better.
