Capturing the true meaning of love in this country, WinkBall created a unique video portal of online romance, affection and devotion from the good people of Britain. There were marriage proposals (and, happily, acceptances!), onscreen kisses, songs, tributes and thousands upon thousands of words from those touched by the spirit of Valentine's. All video messages were hosted on one singular video mega-wall that created a distinct and intimate picture of romance in the UK http://www.winkballpassion.com. The people of Britain were given an exciting video platform to express their love and devotion for that special person in their life and WinkBall captured the love through the emotional power of video.

With this video wall of love, WinkBall have confirmed that the power of love is not just a curious thing, but an emotion that has found life in the online world and has been given a video voice for the 21st century.
