Sebastian’s Birthday Video
Well, everyone — Sebastian finally posted about Alejandra on his Instagram 10 months after they supposedly started dating.
While the posting of this video does put the relationship more in the public eye, it doesn’t mean it has confirmed the relationship is real.
If you’re one of those fans who have started to believe this relationship is real, I’m not judging you or forcing you to stay on the “Team PR” side. But I will tell you that there are a lot of weird things I’ve picked up on in the video that still link this relationship to being a publicity stunt.
The video is old
There’s no doubt about it that the video Sebastian posted is old and is pre-recorded. People are speculating that this video was recorded before traveling to Ibiza.
Sebastian’s hair is shorter and it’s natural-looking. If this video was made recently, we’d see longer and dyed hair.
Sebastian also looks like he is in his apartment in New York City which further proves that the video is old as heck. And unless Sebastian got super into video editing during quarantine, the video had to have been edited by someone else (probably by someone on his team).
The video is also super general. It’s not even a special birthday video. This makes me believe that Sebastian was told to record it, and his team kept it in the archives until a good time to post it came along.
The video is comedic
If you dated someone seriously for almost a year, and their birthday came along, you’d probably want to make a sentimental video for your significant other.
This video was goofy and comedic.
We are all aware of how heartfelt Sebastian’s birthday messages can be and this video was far from that.
I’ve sent and received birthday messages to and from friends that were more sincere than Sebastian’s video. Heck, I wrote a super genuine paragraph to my crush in his graduation card not too long ago.
Maybe Sebastian just wanted to be a goofball, but I feel like he should’ve been more heartfelt in his message if he wanted to make this relationship more believable.
The baits
A huge giveaway to this strange video being orchestrated is the baits that we’ve seen from Alejandra throughout this relationship appearing in it.
We see Sebastian poking fun at Alejandra’s cooking baits, her Christmas bait, her attempts to loophole in the United States through the beach in Tulum and her Valentine’s Day bait.
Fans have even picked up on the picture being a shoutout to Alejandra’s infamous lockscreen bait.
But the baits appearing in this video alone isn’t the only thing that’s weird — it’s the fact that this video was supposedly filmed before Ibiza, which implies that Sebastian and his team knew about the baits before they actually happened in real time.
CAA script?
As you watch the video, if you look closely, you’ll see a white board with a “to do” list. One of the items on that list says “CAA script.”
While CAA and other talent agencies look at screenwriting scripts, agencies also have scripts that are specifically tied to a certain planned PR stunt.
It is unknown what kind of script Sebastian was talking about, though.
There was no tag and no “I love you”
Some fans have picked up on the fact that Sebastian did not tag Alejandra in his video (he only @’ed her in the caption), and the fact that he didn’t say “I love you” at all.
Sebastian may not be allowed to tag Alejandra, as Alejandra’s team probably wouldn’t allow the tag to go through. (Similar to when Alejandra tagged Sebastian in the shadow picture and Sebastian’s team didn’t allow the tag to go through.)
The caption of this post was interesting overall. Saying that Alejandra was the “light” in a “dark” time is super universal. You could say the same thing to a family member or a close friend. My neighbor was my “light” during the “darkness” of the pandemic.
Although a significant other could hold that spot, it’s still nothing unique.
The story post for Tom Holland 
These are two things that fans have observed that tie directly into PR strategies to divert focus and generate more fame respectively.
Alejandra has been raking in controversy since she started dating Sebastian. This video had to have gotten some mixed reviews among fans, and receiving backlash isn’t uncommon for Sebastian at this point.
Posting for Tom Holland’s birthday was the perfect distraction. 
Fans love Sebastian and Tom’s friendship, and they love Sebastian and Anthony Mackie’s comments on Tom’s age and maturity. Sebastian’s story post for Tom’s birthday diverted the focus to something positive and playful.
Chris Evans’ like
There’s a couple of reasons as to why Chris Evans might’ve liked this video. 
First of all, Chris is known for not being skilled in social media, especially on Instagram. He could’ve been scrolling through his feed, aimlessly, and liked the video without knowing what it was. (I do it all the time.)
But Chris is also a client of CAA, and the agency could’ve forced him to like the video. 
If people see that Chris Evans liked Sebastian’s video, it’ll get the video more views and it’ll get Alejandra more fame. And that’s how PR works, my friends.
Alejandra’s comment — te quiero verses te amo
Nearly a day after the video was posted, Alejandra commented.
Fans have been discussing the meaning of “te quiero” versus “te amo” in terms of saying “I love you” to Sebastian.
Here’s a little Spanish lesson for you all…
“Te quiero” translates literally to “I want you.” (“Quiero” stems from the verb “querer” which means “to want.”) “Te amo” translates to “I love you.” (“Amo” stems from the verb “amar” which means “to love.”)
“Te quiero” is known to be the softer version of saying “I love you,” and it’s most commonly expressed to family members, friends and relationships that are just starting out. “Te amo” is the deeper version of “I love you,” and it is normally reserved for very serious romantic relationships.
But with this being said, “te quiero” is the most common form of saying “I love you” across romantic partners, so take that mini-lesson with a grain of salt.

One of the reasons why Free Guy has become a box office hit is the film’s freewheeling nature. The cast had a lot of fun shooting the movie, and it shows. According to Jodie Comer, there were a lot of scenes in which her co-stars, including Ryan Reynolds, Utkarsh Ambudkar, and Taika Waititi, went off script and started to improvise their lines. Usually, Comer says, it happened when they were trying out different jokes, and she found she couldn’t stop laughing! In fact, she told us too many takes were being ruined, and director Shawn Levy had to rein her in a bit.

Awful news about Helen McCrory. A sublime talent, and, from the couple of brief moments our paths crossed whilst battling Hogwarts, a very lovely person. 52 is no age. Xxx

So so sad 💔

I’m devastated to learn of the death of Helen McCrory, an extraordinary actress and a wonderful woman who’s left us far too soon. My deepest condolences to her family, especially her husband and children. Simply heartbreaking news.

Confession: this whole Bob Odenkirk hospitalization is bothering me way more than I thought. It’s the only thing I’ve been thinking about all day yesterday and all day today. 
He almost died. (’Touch-and-go’ basically means ‘almost dead’ in medical terms). But then it’s like “ope nvm he’ll be alright”. Life’s mental. It really do be like that sometimes, huh? One day you might be out, the next you’re back in.
I get emotional if I think about it too much: the outpouring of prayers and love and support for this guy who feels like he doesn’t deserve such a big role in the film/tv industry. At this point I don’t give a rat’s if production is pushed back five months or five years. I just want him and his family and friends to be healthy and happy; they deserve it.

"I truly don’t really know who I totally am yet. I don’t know the way I like to dress. I don’t know the way I like to act around certain people. I don’t know what my purpose is. I don’t know what people are my true friends. I’m just going to keep on making music and I’m probably going to be really confused along the way, and I think that’s the beauty of it. I’m trying not to pretend like I have everything figured out because I sure as hell don’t."

What is PR?
PR stands for “Public Relations.” It’s a communications job that typically bridges the gap between celebrities and reporters. For example, if you were a reporter for a tabloid magazine, you’d have to talk to someone who represents the celebrity beforehand.
I have provided some explanations to the industry to the best of my knowledge and ability, so you’ll understand what it’s about on the basic level.
What is good about PR?
In the celebrity world, PR teams act as managers. It’s almost as if they’re the public figure’s “personal assistant.”
While celebrities work hard to book jobs through auditions and meetings, PR teams work hard to get their clients’ names out through the media. They work behind the scenes to create that celebrity-status persona we all know about.
Because of this, PR is super helpful as celebrities are able to focus on doing their job.
What is bad about PR?
First of all, I want to say that PR isn’t a bad job or industry. In most cases, it’s needed for organizational and management purposes.
But from a journalistic perspective, there are drawbacks to the industry. And one of the major drawbacks is trustworthiness.
Journalists are always searching for what they call the “best source.” For example, if I’m writing about a stage production of “Grease” at my school, I’d want to talk to the director of the show and possibly the lead actors, as they’d give me the most and best information.
In the case of public figures, the “best source” is usually the celebrity’s publicist or PR team — not the celebrity themself.
PR teams are notorious for providing “twisted” information to push out certain narratives. “Twisted” doesn’t exactly mean false, though. It just means that PR teams will tell journalists certain facts that shine their client in a positive light.
For example, if a celebrity is seen doing something controversial, a PR team might work with a journalist to publish a story about a new project they’re working on in order to divert the focus to something positive.
Journalists struggle with the information PR teams give to them, as they could get into serious legal trouble if they publish something false or fabricated. And because PR teams try to manipulate stories, the trustworthiness has gone down.
What is a PR relationship?
A PR relationship is a relationship that is set up for publicity purposes. To put it in the terms of today’s society, it’s a fake relationship that helps get one or both parties involved more clout and fame.
These relationships are strictly professional, although it looks romantic to the public eye. There is always a contract that provides specific instructions for both parties to follow. Contract lengths vary and they can be extended if agencies wish to do so.
I like to put these relationships into three categories — showmance, benefits for both and benefits for one.
Showmances happen when two stars of the same show start dating. It’s the good, old-fashioned “romance on-screen turns into a romance off-screen.” The two stars are told to date in order to get the show more views.
Benefits for both happens when two celebrities need each other’s fame. While one celebrity might have a new single coming out, another might have a new movie releasing. These two celebrities will start dating in order to get a wider fanbase.
Benefits for one happens when a lesser-known celebrity starts dating a well-known celebrity. The well-known celebrity (and their agency) gets money, while the lesser-known celebrity gets fame. These types of relationships are the most common.
If you’d like to learn more about PR relationships (AKA “promances”), you can read about it in this article or listen to the corresponding 11-minute podcast.

One of the unique things about Chucky, the terrifying doll from the Child’s Play film franchise and, now, the TV series “Chucky,” is his voice. In nearly all of the franchise’s films and Chucky, his voice belongs to veteran actor Brad Dourif, So where did that unique voice come from? Dourif told us that its origins actually come from a somewhat unexpected place.

Chucky airs Tuesday nights on SyFy and USA Network.
