Free People e-mailed me this video of their first short film, Roshambo, featuring HBO Girls’ actor, Christopher Abbot and model/actor Sheila Marquez, conveying the story that takes place in the brand’s February catalog. I had to feature it because it’s super cute and romantic, not to mention Christopher is a cuuuuuutie and Sheila is a natural beauty.
A touring band member and his bohemian beaut are unexpectedly reunited on a Brooklyn street, and they spend a short time together in the city’s boroughs. After sharing a cup of coffee, a game of roshambo leads the lovers on a whirlwind romance, with the day’s events building up to what seems to be an inevitable conclusion to their chance encounter. Set to the sounds of Lord Huron’s “The Ghost on the Shore,” Roshambo brings the narrative of these star-crossed lovers to life with a fully flushed out story line and a surprise ending.
What’d ya think of the movie?
