Twitter is falling in love with an imagined romance between a stock image couple.
Stock photos can occasionally spiral into viral sensations — see the 2017 Distracted Boyfriend meme, for example. And now, a Twitter user posted a series of tweets about a stock photo couple and developed a backstory for their relationship. Sometimes, when the internet comes together, it really can make something good.
Illustrator Marisa Maciel, who goes by @standardtuber on Twitter, kicked off the thread announcing she wanted to write “a screenplay about their relationship.”
Maciel dubbed the duo “Paulina and Giorgio”, who are “soulmates and very much in love.” From how they met, to their interests, to what Giorgio considers is his “one talent,” Maciel creates a whole story behind these stock photo models that Twitter users because infatuated with.
“This is magical,” one person tweeted in response.
“Make it end in tears; I want my soul absolutely crushed,” another replied. “I want to be scared of love.”
“This whole thread brought me so much joy,” a person replied. “I love them. I love their love.”
