The Heart of San Francisco.

It’s Valentine’s Day, and what better way to make you feel inadequate about your “romantical” abilities than telling you the real story of one of the most romantic commercials on the face of the earth.

While all are absolutely touched by the idea, many of us had no clue that this was based on a real story. Having to leave behind his hometown of Toronto and his girlfriend, Clare, for a new job opportunity, Payam Rajabi decided to attempt a rather unique long distant Valentine’s Day idea. Now living in San Francisco, Payam endured the city’s hilly terrain on bike, mapping out the shape of a heart along the way. The feat lasted 27 miles and took 2 1/2 hours burning 1,135 calories

Not only was Clare impressed, Verizon was also interested enough to turn the loving gesture into a commercial! Get more of the real story →here← at NPR.
