In Jollibee’s latest TV commercial, a cab driver and a returning overseas Filipino worker cross paths and share a common longing for family, leading to a heartwarming ending that perfectly captures the essence of the material’s tagline “Dito ang sarap ng Pasko, Dito and sarap maging pamilya”.
Jollibee partnered with veteran TV commercial director Dragon Pineda in a heart-tugging ad that most Pinoys can easily relate to. The new campaign highlights how Filipinos extend the love and compassion to even those outside their families.
Pineda shares that the leading fast-food chain aims to send out a touching message to Pinoy viewers with the new ad. “It captures the real essence of the Yuletide season, lalo na in the Philippines na ‘yung concept of Christmas is being with your family or if you aren’t able to do that, sharing your gifts to others and making them part of the family,” he says.
Certainly, the tear-jerking ad hasn’t gone unnoticed by netizens. “We’ll be the first to admit it: TV commercials make us cry—and we teared up after watching Jollibee’s latest TV ad,” says an anonymous author in an article posted in news and lifestyle website Coconuts Manila.
“Now if this video doesn’t shake you up even a bit, I don’t know what will,” adds writer Joy Cabaltera-Tagle of Talk Philippines, an independent Philippine-based online news site.
Comments also flooded in via Facebook as hundreds took to the social network to air their sentiments. “I like the message of this commercial. Nakaka-touch,” writes Janeth Kirong Clava.
“The best commercial I’ve seen for Christmas,” posts JC John Sese Cuneta.
Showcasing the Filipino nature of compassion and spirit of family, the Jollibee TV commercial serves to remind everyone of the true meaning of Christmas.
Miggy and Laida Montenegro of the biggest box office local movie series have tied the knot in It Takes A Man and A Woman, but their fans and supporters just couldn’t get enough of them!
John Lloyd Cruz and Sarah Geronimo crossed paths again in an event of an endorsement. It was a very special event because all of the endorsers of the huge brand were present, Sarah being one of them was there to grace the stage. She sang the brand’s theme song and one of the songs included in her latest album and also the theme song of her last movie with John Lloyd. The feeling was nostalgic!
Check out what happened when Sarah and John Lloyd met during the event:
The Araneta Coliseum and SM Mall of Asia Arena were both filled with a crowd of all ages, status, gender, and generally different kinds of people. But they were united to witness the celebration of the 10 fruitful years of the one and only Popstar Royalty Sarah Geronimo.
And it seemed that not only Sarah’s fans were the only ones there to join her for the celebration; even her long-time friends and idols from the industry were present as well not to watch her show, but to share the stage with Sarah!
Her old friends Christian Bautista, Rachelle Ann Go, and Mark Bautista graced the Araneta show with good vibes, as they sing along dance hits such as Take Back the Night, Get Lucky, and Treasure. One could really see that Sarah was having fun performing again with her friends, without those high notes and strict program format. It was just plain, happy, and fun coming back together, and it showed!
Moreover, it has been previously announced that Ms Lea Salonga and Ms Regine Velasquez-Alcasid will be special guests to Sarah’s Perfect 10 concert. Ms Regine has always been there for Sarah since the beginning, since Sarah won in Star for A Night which started her career, and still supporting her ten years after. Ms Lea, on the other hand, has been Sarah’s co-coach in reality talent show The Voice of the Philippines, where in they developed a deep sense of friendship.
Everybody knew these two world-class singers were coming, but nobody knew what was going to happen. And what happened blew the roof off Araneta! Regine, Sarah, and Lea came on the stage to sing a Barbra Streisand medley of five songs (People, Memory, Papa Can You Hear Me, Tell Him, and Somewhere). Watch the performance here:
In the MOA show, there were different and same sets of guests and performances. Two of Sarah’s artists from The Voice of the Philippines that she mentored, Morissette Amon and Klarisse de Guzman, showed off why they deserved to be Sarah’s top artists. Together with Sarah, the three of them took the audience’s breath away with their outstanding and stylistic rendition of Rihanna’s Diamonds. Sarah couldn’t even take off her proud smile after their performance.
Mark Bautista wasn’t able to make it to the MOA show, but Sarah’s old friends Erik Santos and Jimmy Marquez took on the spotlight, with Christian Bautista. They joked around first, telling everybody funny anecdotes about Sarah such as taking too long in the dressing room, bringing along Daddy D and her driver whenever they have a get-together, and other entertaining little things about the Popstar Princess. Then they performed the upbeat medley, with Sarah joining them afterwards, altogether bringing friendly energy and fun to the show.
And although Ms Lea Salonga was not in the MOA show, the Barbra Streisand segment was nevertheless as epic as the Araneta show with Ms Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, Rachelle Ann Go, and Sarah Geronimo. Rachelle Ann showed that she is one outstanding performer as she gave a heartfelt and note-perfect rendition to the classic songs. Ms Regine was flawless as always, and Sarah was just breath-taking and incredibly amazing.
Watch the video below:
All in all, even without announcing the guests before the show, Sarah still managed to stage another astounding concert that everyone who watched wouldn’t be able to forget.
