Lily Allen plays cupid in Cornetto Cupidity Love Stories: 40 Love

A short film about a girl who falls in love with a tennis player, and nothing about eating ice-cream

Who says advertising for ice-cream has to be all about having the said dessert unwrapped, eaten, and shared among friends and family in a pristine, fantastical home? The newest in the Cornetto Cupidity Love Stories series is one entitled 40 Love (because tennis, get it?), featuring singer-songwriter Lily Allen as Cupid.

Debbie (Phoebe Neidhardt), a lines umpire gets knocked out by a tennis ball, served by tennis pro Maria (Fernanda Romero). Think of the tennis ball as cupid's arrow, and you've got yourself an unlikely love story that's sweeter than any ice-cream. We half-expected Debbie and Maria to both whip out a Cornetto and share it at the end or something, ruining the sincerity, but all the Cornetto we got was the logo on the court sidelines. Thank goodness.

Watch the other Cornetto Cupidity Love Stories: Drawings & Dreams, Love Ride, and The Oasis.
