One of Philippine cinema’s most well-loved love teams of all time has reunited for a new McDonald’s television commercial. Which the McDonald’s new commercial didn’t fail to make the viewers “kilig” and everyone is shocked to the new endorsers of this commercial.
About 26 years after they last shared screen time together in Laurice Guillen’s “Tayong Dalawa,” Sharon Cuneta and former husband Gabby Concepcion are back together in a commercial to promote McDonald’s bestselling Chicken McDo and French fries. The commercial opens with the actress dubbed as the Megastar sitting alone at a McDonald’s restaurant enjoying her Chicken McDo and French fries.The camera then pans to Gabby who approaches Sharon and asks, “Do you mind if I join you?,” Sharon then ups the kilig factor by replying, “Ikaw naman, parang wala tayong pinagsamahan. (It’s not like we haven’t been through a lot of things together)” as an acoustic version of Willy Cruz’s OPM classic, “Kumusta Ka” plays in the background.
The two then exchange meaningful stares and smiles while no one else in the McDonald’s store seems to notice. When they finally engaged in conversation, Gabby tries to wipe the lips of Sharon with a napkin as the camera eventually pans away.
The McDonald’s commercial comes on the heels of three new Valentine videos by rival fast food chain Jollibee under its now annual #KwentongJollibee campaign. As of posting time, it had amassed over 1.7 million views on Facebook after only eight hours online.
A Sharon-Gabby reunion movie has been in the works for years and was supposed to finally go beyond the drawing board last year. Sharon, however, ended up reuniting with another of her famous leading man, Robin Padilla in “Unexpectedly Yours.” The movie, which opened in late November, was a blockbuster that earned over P249 million worldwide.
Both Sharon and Gabby are still not ruling out that much awaited reunion movie.
