…It’s not Thursday. Boo 😦 Anyway, since I’m bored and I don’t have a social life. I’d like to share my Top 5 favorite TV commercials of all time.
Your childhood’s not complete when you never played the game wherein you have to guess what commercial is going to come next. As a kid, there weren’t really much channels in the late 90’s and the early 2000’s (well in my country). I can recall, there were only like 50+ channels you can choose from.
Growing up, my mom only allowed me to watch some Tagalog shows on TV. Like, the local news every evening, some local game shows and after that I’m back to watching Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon. So when I started school, my Tagalog skillz were poor lol. But I worked hard on that because I didn’t want to suck at Filipino later on in life. Eventually, I succeeded and now I’m awesome and tbh I rarely speak in English now. Hahaha. I know simple words like pula, to deep words like makapagdamdamin and bad words like
Punyeta etc. HAHAHA WAT NOW =))
Fun fact I was 4 whn I watched my first Tagalog movie. It was Judy Anne and Piolo’s movie. Hahaha. I forgot the title but yeah. I’m allowed to watch Tagalog TV shows already 😛
Okay then. Let’s get started
☾ Gina and Karen, McDo ☽
This commercial never gets old :’) It’s the commercial that touched the hearts of almost all the Filipinos out there.
☾ Gusto ko lang naman ng fries eh, McDo ☽
THIS COMMERCIAL IS TOO CUTE I JUST ASDNAKSFNA Too bad it didn’t air longer because some people thought it wasn’t proper for the children to have a relationship at that age. Oh well.
☾ Red sports car, Fita ☽
I laughed so hard when this came out!! Omygod hahaha. And whenever I eat Fita, I instantly remember this commercial and laugh.
☾ Closer You and I, Close Up☽
KIMERALD SHIPPERS WHERE U AT?! hahaha 🙂
☾ Goodbye Carlo, Purefoods Tender Juicy ☽
I wasn’t born yet when this was aired, but this has got to be my favorite. I only found out this TV ad because someone posted it on Tumblr. I COULD ACTUALLY RELATE TO THIS?! “Dear diary, Carlo sat beside me today. He’s so cute. Sabi niya I’m pretty. Kaya lang I’m fat. 😦 I eat too much kasi eh. Kaya ngayon, goodbye chocolates, goodbye spaghetti, goodbye hotdog *sees hotdog in her side table* *scratches out goodbye hotdog in her diary* GOODBYE CARLO “ hahahahaha oh mygod this commercial is so benta i’m crying. I was reading the comments, does this commercial really have a sequel? The one where Carlo was played by Patrick Garcia a.k.a one of my childhood crushes… until he had his braces off. HAHAHA. Can someone upload it? Please? Thanks.
☾ First Love, McDo ☽
Okay. Mcdo really makes the best TV Ads. Hands down. Haha. I think they thought of this concept because there’s a line in the song “Huling El Bimbo” by the Eraserheads (the song playing in the background) “Lumipas ang maraming taon, di na tayo nagkita. Balita ko’y may anak ka na.
Ngunit walang asawa.“ In english meaning: “We haven’t met in years. I heard you have a kid now but you don’t have a husband.” But she had a husband in the commercial. ((and spoiler alert, the girl died in the song bc she was hit by a car)) aWWW. Anyway, another thing. This was released 2009, if I’m not mistaken. The legendary band Eraserheads who released Huling El Bimbo in the early 90s, had a reunion concert which served as their first in years and their last, ever. So maybe, as a tribute, McDo used the song since it gives this nostalgic feeling to Filipinos.
