Movistar Love Story reveals online twist

Movistar Mexico, the Telefonica mobile phone provider, is running “Love Story”, a commercial promoting safety for young people meeting each other online. Shot in Madrid, Spain, the Love Story commercial shows two young teenagers connecting with each other using their mobile phones, catching up on their days, sending photos, and arranging to meet for the first time. Alejandro Padilla will wear a black jacket. Mia Aguirre will wear pink. When they meet at the park, however, they discover that not all is as it seems. The Movistar Love Story soundtrack, “You’re somebody else” by Flora Cash, reveals the looming reality. The commercial is part of the #ConcienciaMovistar awareness raising campaign, focused in this case on the existence of fake social media profiles.

Movistar Love Story

You’re Somebody Else – Lyrics

I saw the part of you
That only when you’re older you will see too
You will see too
I held the better cards
But every stroke of luck has got a bleed through
It’s got a bleed through
You held the balance of the time
That only blindly I could read you
But I could read you
It’s like you told me
Go forward slowly
It’s not a race to the end

Well you look like yourself
But you’re somebody else
Only it ain’t on the surface
Well you talk like yourself
No, I hear someone else though
Now you’re making me nervous
