On the week of Valentine’s, mysterious pink billboards with the words “Olivia, will you marry me?” popped out accross main thoroughfares in the metro. Also written on the billboards were the numbers “21414,” that many assumed to be Valentine’s or the proposal date.

It turns out, “21414” refers to the weekly price of a unit in the said condominium. “For as low as P2,141.4/week,” said the new billboards that recently popped out.

For the past week, the billboards have created a buzz among curious citizens, with many taking to social media to share theories behind the mystery.

Many believed the billboards were part of a real proposal. Actor John Prats, they said, was the romantic behind it, given that the actor’s girlfriend, actress Isabel Oli, is named Olivia Daytia in real life. Adding to this, the two revealed in recent interviews that they are ready to settle down.

Others, however, were right to believe that the wide campaign could have been the work only of a major company.

There were some who believed the billboards were part of a marketing campaign for television show Scandal, which has as main character someone named Olivia. Others speculated the campaign was for a feminine wash product.
