Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

New KFC TVC Is Out!



A gay friend sent me an SMS about it, saying it was hilarious. The Bakla Review’d it, giving it a B+. I love it for its casting and acting. Sure, the guy who squealed makes an excuse in the end (“Nabigla lang ako. Sarap kasi ng shrimp!”), but for me that sounds suspiciously like Agency giving in to Client’s request of, “Can we have the product benefit mentioned somewhere in the copy?” Besides, he doesn’t really deny anything, right?

Now, where oh where can I find an office where all the guys are that cute and gay-friendly?! (Oo, komersyal nga ito!)

@MING MEOWS: AHAHAHAHA! Which makes me suspect even more that the copywriter is gay and wrote that into the script as a subtle hint, hehehe.
