“Third Wheel Photographer” Ad for Valentine’s Day Goes Viral

So, you’ve surely heard by not about the viral “Boyfriend for Hire” craze on social media this past week and we featured two of our top picks, the Chinoy Boyfriend for Hire and the Teacher for Hire (he’s not the typical boyfriend for hire) earlier.

There were actually a number of these hilarious ads circulating on the web. While they seem serious, many would tell you they were just joking; although we’re not quite sure if they would actually go on a date if someone actually tries to pursue the matter and hire them!

But with all that joking around, we spotted something these love birds are surely going to need: the perfect third wheel photographer!

Hilary Buenaflor posted an ad offering her services to those who wish to enjoy a private photoshoot with their partners this Valentine’s Day. Aside from being a good photographer, she promised she had the following skills:

  • kayang umakyat ng poste (can climb posts)
  • kayang tiisin ang kalandian niyo (can bear the couple’s flirting)
  • hindi ako maiinggit sa inyo (won’t feel envious)
  • mabait na tao (good)
  • mapagpasensya *so kahit ilang pics at kalandian ok lng* (patient and can take unlimited pictures)
  • kayang mag adjust para sa inyo (can easily adjust for the couple)

Isn’t she hilarious?

The package rates she offers are actually reasonable, with the prices depending on the number of hours she’s hired and the location of the photoshoot. She even accepts out-of-town bookings for Php3,000! Of course, the couple has to shoulder her transportation expenses, food, and other incidentals no matter what package they pick.

But while the “boyfriend for hire” and “girlfriend for hire” crazes were mostly pranks and jokes, Buenaflor admits she’s serious about her ad but if no one hires her, she wouldn’t be so sad and would just greet everyone a “Happy Valentine’s Day”.
