I found this video from a friend-of-mine's friend's friend's post. It's amazing how the video maker created a teaser-like video of box-office romantic movie One More Chance, so pleasing to the eye, especially when it incorporated some of the best lines with a Facebook-inspired editing. A very, very innovative way of video editing! Kudos to imarc7!
