For those of us who grew up watching TV, commercials were definitely cool. We’ve seen countless parodies of it, memorized the lines, and even re-enacted them in school. Now we’re even spotting some commercial models who have transitioned into great actors today.
Here are some you might remember:
This commercial definitely brings back the childhood memories and how we consumed powdered chocolate drinks (and even milk!) before. Hot or iced, on top of ice cream, or even on its own, we loved Ovaltine because however way it was prepared, masarap pa rin!
For those of you who didn’t know, the Piolo and Toni tandem all began here. What made it an instant hit was because that time, all girls were definitely Piolo-crazy, and this ad only gave him more female fans! Today, Piolo and Toni have made films together, the recent one being Last Night.
Simply a classic—with models dancing and a catchy song! Perhaps this Caronia commercial was even made bigger after it was spoofed in the gag show Tropang Trumpo.
Even before hugot commercials were a thing yet, this father-and-son drama was already a hit. Simple but very relatable, and the “suportahan taka” line was definitely catchy—we used it in our everyday convos for a while, too! It’s also one of the ads that made Christian Vasquez an instant heartthrob back in the early 2000s.
