Watch: Adorable Uber Ad Retells True Story of Gay Crush
A new Uber commercial that debuted in the Philippines this week retells a true story about a gay man who finds himself sharing a ride with a crush.
The ad shows a young man using UberPool, the app's feature that picks up other passengers along the same route. Through a series of tweets, we learn the protagonist is sharing a car with his longtime crush. The ad doesn't show the crush until the very end, which is revealed to be another man.
"Because sometimes, it's more than just a ride. It's the moment you've been waiting for," a title card reads.
The clip has earned 2.7 million views on Facebook. Check it out below.
