Paired according to their love teams, the teen stars took turns performing ordinary tasks, with the added challenge of narrating each movement but with their respective partner’s arms seemingly their own.

For the first part, Echarri had Diaz’s hands making and feeding him a sandwich, while Fedelin was groomed by Brillantes with hair gel and makeup.

The second part saw a reversal of roles. This time, Brillantes prepared and ate cereals, but with Fedelin’s arms. Diaz, meanwhile, could only protest as Echarri put her makeup and styled her hair.

As of writing, the back-to-back videos already had nearly two million views on YouTube, with hundreds of comments expressing “kilig” with the goofy — and sweet — dynamics of “The Gold Squad.”
