Command Cupid

Cupid hands out roses on your behalf via Periscope

This Valentine’s Day we will show you what a delight it is to give someone a flower. Our modern day Cupid has one goal: to help you find love. He will wander through the streets of Paris and Berlin, equipped with a high-tech bow that has a built-in smartphone and camera, in search of your ‘love at first digital sight’. If you spot a potential lover on his camera: Command Cupid! He will hand your Valentine a rose on your behalf. And the best thing is, you can see their reaction live via Periscope. Let us know if this campaign hit its mark and if his rose helps turn romance into a love story.

Cupid will be firing his rose arrows on 14 February between 11:00AM and 1:00PM UK time, in Paris and Berlin (12:00PM and 2:00PM local time there). You can follow our live stream via Periscope (@CommandCupid for Berlin or @CupidonConnecte for Paris). Take a look at the video below to see what you can expect.
