Oh! Pa Ra Sa Ta U Wa Yeah!

It’s just recently that I’ve watched Nestle Philippines’ Kasambuhay Habambuhay Short Film Anthology. I know it’s been almost a month since it premiered, but it’s just recently that I found time to watch them. As with my previous Nestea Commercial entries, this short film deserves to be viewed with respect to the previous TVCs as a continuation of the whole Nicos-Mattina story arc. Actually I was expecting a continuation of their story upon first hearing about Nestle’s short film of their products, and guess what, I was right. The plot already has a background story with a significant cult following, … Continue reading

Nestea TVC – “Insider”

The summer installment of the Nestea TVC series has been finally released. With the usual cast of characters, Nicos, Mattina and family, we got a sneak peak at Mattina’s family and let us know that she has a younger sister named Bettina, played by the rising child star, Jillian Ward. According to Nicos’ insider, Bettina, her sister currently has 3 possible suitors, the English-speaking, the Japanese-Brazilian and the person she met in Boracay. I’m sure you’re not surprised by the number of suitors of Mattina, but what I’m really surprised is Nicos’ self-confidence. I wonder where he’s getting it from? … Continue reading

The True Story of Manny Pacquiao

After Manny Pacquiao's previous fight and before his upcoming fight with Mayweather, he amuses me with what other things he can do aside from boxing. It's been a known fact that Pacman is one of the most sought after product endorser. So, don't be surprised if you will see two or three TVCs in one commercial break while watching a local television channel. As of present, the most noteworthy TVC he's ever made is the Datu Puti Commercial that features the "True Story" of Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao. It was really amusing and I found it very entertaining compared to the … Continue reading

Nestea TVC: 214

I know that this commercial has been running for weeks now. I actually wanted to post this 8 hours 30 minutes and 2 seconds before Valentine's Day, but I guess I didn't. Seems like Nestea is still on a roll with its new commercial entitled "214." The whole cast still reprised their role on the commercial series, albeit I don't think the sister appeared on the previous commercial. In my opinion, the plot and story is still cool and fresh and can still tickle the funny bones of the new generation, although it lacks the artistic side and "cinematography" of … Continue reading

Classic Hotdog Commercial

It’s retro time! Here’s a classic commercial from the early ’90s. It’sĀ reminiscentĀ of the good old days where online blogs don’t exist and you don’t post your current status for everyone to see. It was the time where diaries are private and usually are the key in solving the conflict on old Filipino teledramas. Here’s Tender Juicy’s classic commercial featuring Chantal Umali on a TVC that could virtually take you back in time and reminisce about the days where Bleach can only refer to a chemical whitener, and ninjas don’t wear bright orange jackets.
