Philippine Jolibee commercials

Hi !  Renxkyoko Iglesias here .

 

To be honest, I don’t know where to start.

 

Okay, so last Saturday,  I was watching some Philippine stuff on You Tube when I came across  another Jolibee commercial, this time for Mother’s Day. I don’t know if you’ve seen the Jolibee Valentine commercial called DATE that I posted in February.  Hold it right there, Ren, what’s a freakin’ Jolibee ?  Well, Jolibee is the largest fast food chain in the Philippines. (  there are Jolibee franchises already here in the US, there are 2 where I live ).  If you haven’t seen it, here it is.  Those who have seen it, I hope  you still remember that particular  commercial ( I posted a series of 3 commercials )

 

Then last Saturday, I saw this, a Jolibee commercial for Mother’s Day  (   You need to watch both , otherwise, this post is pretty pointless. )

 

 

Just a question for my Filipino readers……. are all commercials in the Philippines like these ?  This is  a  fast food chain that sells fried chicken and hamburgers  and targets human emotions in the most profound way. Kind of weird.

 

After watching this most recent Jolibee commercial,  I had a sudden craving for  Jollibee burgers and fried chicken , and invited my parents to a Jolibee lunch,  my treat, of course.

 

Then at Jolibee, I saw this.

On my post, Philippine Blood Soup,  I tackled the Filipinos’ love affair with  corned beef, potatoes and cabbage,  very Irish , and so not typically Asian.  Even here in the US, we  eat that for breakfast , with rice and egg, or corned beef sandwich, or corned beef stew with potatoes and cabbage for dinner.  So, can you see the Jolibee menu of corned beef breakfast with fried rice and egg  and corned beef sandwich on the menu panel ? ( You can also see breakfast hotdogs with fried rice and egg ). These are typical Filipino breakfasts.  Is that weird ? Hotdogs with fried rice and egg ? Or bacon.  Guys, you should try this.

We had ” pancit palabok ” ( noodles with shrimp sauce), a bucket of ChickenJoy, with gravy, Aloha burger, and Mango Peach Pie.

 

This is all for now. Thank you for reading.
