♪♫ A social media love story
Walter May, a film director in Los Angeles, decided to write a 21st-century love letter to his girlfriend, Alexis Trevino, who lives across the country attending graduate school at Duke University. According to the video's YouTube page, his friends in the band the Daylights wrote a song, "I Hope This Gets to You." They filmed a hand-dance video to go along with it. Then May asked the social web to take over, make the film go viral and hope his girlfriend discovered it on the Internet on her own.
Within two days, May announced on Twitter the video had reached its destination. A fan of the video seems to have tracked down the girlfriend's Facebook page and sent it to her. It's that age old story: Boy meets girl. Boy loves girl. Boy makes viral video for girl.
WE DID IT!!! SHE LOVES IT!!! Thank all of you for the support. Amazing what we can do together! YOU made the world a little smaller tonight.
Either this is an amazing social media promotion of an indie band, or its the sweetest love story to make use of YouTube, Twitter and Facebook yet. Either way, it's a catchy tune:
