Is McDo doing its own ad-serye?

Well, maybe yes. Just this afternoon while watching Eat Bulaga, we are all shocked at a new ALDUB commercial that aired. We still had a bit of hangover from last Saturday's Tamang Panahon  when Alden and Maine finally meet and knew each other better. It's more kilig because they finally got, not just touch, but to hug each other and talked about their feelings on stage at the Philippine Arena. ALDUB Nation is definitely rejoicing and hoping that this love team would soon be a reality. No pressure, Alden and Maine. ;)
Going back to the advertisement, McDonalds still didn't forget the roots of ALDUB, adapting another song from VST & Company, Paniwalaan Mo.

Their first McDonald's commercial only featured the Chicken Fillet ala King, also known as the ALDUB meal which is Php59 per order. Now a 1-pc Chicken McSavers meal is also included for this promotion.

The ad came more exciting when it already featured the three lovable Lolas: Nidora, Tidora and Tinidora, played by JoWaPao (Jose Manalo, Wally Bayola and Paolo Ballesteros).

Unfortunately, Maine and Alden do not seem to meet but instead, they got closer as the two already had photos of each other in their wallet and locket. Watch the full version of the ad below:

Balikan ang kilig ng kahapon. Ang sarap MAINE-love kapag ikaw DEN ang laman ng isip niya. Alden, Yaya and some senior citizens say #ALDUBKoTo for Chicken McSavers!

In a marketing perspective, McDonalds still do not fail to reach to the broad target market, the young and the old with their ads. We've been emotionally attached with the story of the #KalyeSerye which also caters to the broad audience. Now the question is, when will the two have their date at McDonald's? Will they both bite on the same hamburger? I am now expecting a part 3 of this ad series and we hope it will come very, very soon.

Maine Mendoza has a new love

Maine "Yaya Dub" Mendoza admits she has a new love aside from Alden.
This weekend, we are teased with posts all over Facebook and Twitter with #DalawaAngPusoNiMaine. We now wonder for whom is she offering her "second heart." We are all excited and not disappointed with the latest commercial for 555 Sardines which aired Saturday at Eat Bulaga break. Dubbing Sana Dalawa ang Puso Ko with a little rapping, watch the video below.
Bakit kaya dalawa ang puso ni Meng?

Si Maine, sobra mag mahal… not once but twice! #MaineHearts555

Posted by 555 Sardines on Friday, October 2, 2015
Congratulations once again Maine for another endorsement. This was the 4th since her first with McDonald's launched in September.
