Robert Pattinson’s video of Ellen DeGeneres and him is certainly one of the most anticipated events of the year. The actor/director released the first part of the romantic comedy/drama on Thursday, and it depicts some truly touching moments between two celebrity crushes as they spend time together on a basketball court and at a formal dinner party. The video opens with Pattinson and Ellen making eye contact across a crowded room before slowly stepping towards each other, eventually greeting and hugging each other in front of a packed house at the Los Angeles Athletic Club. It goes without saying that this is one of the most exciting events in their careers as it marks their first ever public appearance as a couple, as well as Ellen’s second date with Pattinson (her first being an awkward encounter at the Great Gatsby premiere in 2013).

Two Of Hollywood’s Most Popular Men In One Video

The next hour and a half will bring the audience unforgettable memories as they are treated to a display of pure chemistry between the two iconic Hollywood stars. The audience will see them cracking jokes, sharing tender kisses, and engaging in playful repartee. Most importantly, they will get to witness the transformative power of true love in all its glory. So, while you’re anxiously awaiting the next part of the video, here’s a small list of things you might need to know about the characters featured in the first installment:

Basket Ball: A One-of-a-Kind Game

Pattinson brings his talent as an improvisational comic to bear as he tries out various tricks and plays on the court with DeGeneres. The best part is that he regularly changes the moves and routines based on what works with the other player. For example, when DeGeneres attempts to counterattack against a series of offensive moves, Pattinson will feign surprise and then quickly whip around for a reverse layup as she tries to guard him. She’s a great sport about it all, even going so far as to laugh along with him during one routine and remark, “When you’re having fun, no one can take away your fun.”

DeGeneres Gets An Early Christmas Present

When the credits finish rolling on the first part of the video, one of the first images that come to mind is that of DeGeneres holding a large gift bag. In what appears to be an early Christmas present from Pattinson, she opens the bag and reveals a humongous diamond ring. They share a sweet and private moment as the camera catches a few tears before we cut to black.

What Will Make This Video So Special?

Aside from the fact that it features two of Hollywood’s most popular stars, the highlight of this particular video is the way it was made. We can’t put into words how much love and warmth was exhibited by Pattinson as he recorded this with his phone. During the course of a single day, he visited numerous places, including Disneyland, and made several stops along the way to record some funny and touching moments with DeGeneres. Furthermore, he incorporated a variety of different camera angles and techniques to capture the intimacy that he and DeGeneres share on screen. In what appears to be an homage to classic romantic comedies like When Harry Met Sally or Sleepless in Seattle, these two bring their own brand of humor and heartache to the table as they navigate their way through dating and marriage in the 21st century.
