#ThrowbackThursday: Clinique Happy Ads

These Clinique Happy ads from the 1990s are puzzling. What is going on here? Was the girl in the pink was dancing with the guy and then her friend stole him from her when she went to surprise her with a cake? Or the girl in the pink put together a nice birthday party and she’s being ignored? Is this about making someone happy or being a doormat?
A football player, the girl in the pink with a cake, a cheerleader and a couple in black tie. Makes no sense. Also, why is nobody eating that cake?

If anyone could shed some light on what story these ads are trying to tell feel free to send me a DM on IG @reinesoleillesoin
