This new branded short for Ray-Ban centers on the comedically surreal story of a young man named Jerome. As a result of societal pressure to suppress his feelings, Jerome repeatedly blurts out “I love you” far too soon in every romantic encounter. After being “cured” by a hypnotherapist, he must fight to reconnect with his sensitive nature to save a budding relationship with featured musician Natalie Prass and express his true feelings.
Titled Oh Jerome, No, this short was directed by Spielbergs (Alex Karpovsky, a co-star from HBO’s Girls, and Teddy Blanks, graphic designer for Lena Dunham + Kim Gordon) and features a cast which include Mamoudou Athie (from the forthcoming Netflix series The Get Down), Arturo Castro (Broad City) and features a score, created and performed specially for Ray-Ban by Prass.

The short is the third chapter in Ray-Ban’s #ITTAKESCOURAGE campaign.
