Troye Sivan Posts a Romantic Teaser Trailer
In the video, Troye is friends with a boy while they are kids – and it appears that they eventually become boyfriends when they get older.
“We tell each other everything,” says the voiceover.
“He comes to my house most of the time.”
“He told me how to jump off the jetty.”
“He’s my best friend.”
The trailer ends with a fight-filled cliffhanger, and a call-to-action to pre-order.

Fans & YouTubers React
Ricky Dillon, Connor Franta, Lohanthony and Louise Pentland were very excited and tweeted pre-order links. “Oh my god! Oh wow!”
On the video, many fans immediately started speculating on the trilogy’s plot. One fan had a depressing take.
Many fans were confused about the voiceover moment at 0:23. “He told me how to jack off?” one confused fan wrote.
It was actually “he told me how to jump off the jetty”, in an Australian accent.
Fans started to imagine fanfic possibilites. “Imagine if Kian Lawley was the other boy.”
There were also a ton of comments comparing Troye’s love interest to Connor Franta. “Am I the only one who thinks he looks like Connor?”
