Uber has released a new commercial that shows a gay man’s chance encounter with his longtime crush.

The ride-sharing app has been sharing real stories from Uber passengers. In the ad, a man is using UberPOOL and wants to get dropped off before the second passenger.

When the passenger joins him he discovers that it’s his crush. Suddenly with a change of heart, the man tweets to his followers what he should say to the passenger and gets so flustered he asks the driver to turn up the air conditioning.

At the end of the ad, it’s revealed that his crush is a man. The ad is based on the real tweets of Uber passenger, AJ Tabangay.

Watch it below.
