Purple Magazine presents “420”
directed by Jacob Mendel Brown
starring Carlos Santolalla and John Tuite
Recently the fashion world has warmed to two formerly taboo trends: gay models and marijuana. New York boyfriends Carlos Santolalla and John Tuite sit at the intersection of the two. No longer together, they once modeled as a couple and shared the Instagram handle @jarlos420 as a showcase of their homostoner lifestyle.
This video reimagines these two young models’ first "hang out" and celebrates 420 and homoeroticism.
As Santolalla put it, it's “a fantasy where ‘lemme hit that’ becomes lemme hit that.”
