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
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
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
Due to the earlier TVC OK‘s popularity, it seems that Nestle Nestea decided to follow up its fan-base with a sequel titled as TY. This showed a noticeable drop of content quality than the previous one. Aside from being Christmas-themed, it still uses its old theme of being dumped. This TVC series’ charm still works like magic. I think still many out there can relate with our broken hearted Nicos. A symbol of a common Filipino family, a little teasing here and there, but still happy as a whole. Portraying the religious nature but not overly fanatic.
“OK,” the new TV ad of Nestea has found its way to pop culture. With its popular catch-phrases like “kindred spirits” and “to the left, to the left,” I’m sure major advertising companies are now thinking, “Why didn’t we think of this before?” I just found this commercial cool, that’s all. It’s a break from the common trends of commercial stereotypes like kids dancing to cheesy jingle music, product brand comparing to Brand X, popular celebrities whom without them would make the commercial seemingly pointless and voice-overs who narrates almost the entire description of the product found on the back … Continue reading
