*A new romance sub-genre?!

Specifically, there’s one short, slow motion video that has caught Twitter‘s attention, which involves Oscar gazing lovingly at Jessica before intimately kissing her inner arm. As of right now, it’s been viewed over seven million times:

Now, it should be noted that these two stars are, in fact, married — and not to each other* — but this sort of stuff just goes to show how important off-screen chemistry is for on-screen chemistry! It’s palpable!

*Oscar is married to Danish screenwriter and director, Elvira Lind, while Jessica is married to fashion executive Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo.

ANYWAY, the internet handled this whole thing by remaining calm, cool, and collected…JK, they lost their damn minds:
