You must have seen this video that went viral few months ago of a boy named “Derek” expressing his crush to a classmate named “Anna” on the PLDT DSL commercial. If not here is the the video.
I can relate to Derek’s situation. I had a crush too when I was in first year high school (circa 1976) but was too “torpe” or timid to express my affection to her personally. So I wrote her a letter and included the typed (using typewritter) lyrics on a perfumed stationery paper of my love song to her “You’re in My Heart” by Rod Stewart. Those days, personal computers where still not in fashion, let alone the Internet, so it was my high tech (that time) version of Derek’s rap love video message.
I love also this video of how Derek’s mom supported him to get hits for his videos.
Back to the love story again. Now, finally, the sequels to these videos are out. The story continues.
The first one, is Anna’s video reply to Derek’s video message:
It was heart-breaking to watch that video reply from Anna. It reminded me of the rejection that I also got with my first crush. The rejection from your crush really hurts. I felt sorry for Derek.
The other video is the following:
I love the emotions of this video of the family’s concern about the heart-break Derek will be experiencing when he sees the video reply.
Fortunately, it will not be a sad ending. At the end of the video, there was a new “Anna” that came into the scene who made another video reply to Derek’s.
Here is how you can help Derek.
