Cupids are tired, anxious, and completely out of their wits in new campaign by Netflix and GIGIL

Press Release

It’s the first Valentine’s since the pandemic, and the Cupids are stressed. Getting people to find love during the lockdown hasn’t been easy. According to their data, “A lot of couples broke up. Single people found it hard to mingle.” 

So, inspired by Lara Jean of “To All the Boys: Always and Forever,” Netflix and GIGIL bring Filipinos a never-before-heard request from the Philippine Association ng mga Kupido, or PAK: Remember how to flirt. 

Watch the organization of Cupids brainstorm ideas, since love hasn’t quite been in the air in 2021. See their discussion go, from breaking up statistics, to pulling out a Gatling bow and arrow:

The film features comedians from Comedy Manila, with Red Ollero as the head Cupid. His winged crew members are James Caraan, GB Labrador, Yuki Horikoshi, Aldo Cuervo, Alexio Tabafunda, and Roger Naldo, with a special appearance by Philippine TikTok sensation, Pipay Kipay.

In less than 24 hours without being boosted, the video scored over 1.3 million views, 91,000 reactions, and 5,000 comments. As of writing, the film has been shared more than 43,000 times.

The Cupids’ efforts didn’t stop with the film. They also created a short online PSA, and invaded Spotify and TikTok. And as a way to help people make the first move like Lara Jean, they offered 1500 free bouquets for sending this Valentine’s weekend in Metro Manila and Cebu City! The orders were placed on a specially made microsite by the Cupids called’s famous flower market, now online. Bouquets for the capital were all claimed in an hour. The deliveries will be done by Cupid riders in partnership with Grab.

For more flirting inspo, watch Lara Jean on “To All the Boys: Always and Forever,” the Cupids suggest. The film is launching this Feb. 12 on Netflix.
