Why McDo’s Gabby-Sharon TVC is going viral


MCDONALD’s Valentine’s Day-inspired television commercial featuring showbiz stars and ex-lovers Gabby Concepcion and Sharon Cuneta is all about nuance and it has gone viral across social media platforms.

Set to the song “Kumusta Ka”, the TVC opens with Gabby asking Sharon if he could share her table at a McDonald’s fastfood outlet.

Sharon replies with “Ikaw naman parang wala tayong pinagsamahan” in what gives viewers a hint that they may be playing cameo roles with a reference to their past marriage.

The skit tugs at the heart not only because of its simplicity highlighted by their meaningful eye communication but also because of that one tender moment when Gabby took a tissue and wiped the corner of Sharon’s lips.

“Anu ba yung pinunasan? Mantika ba yun ng McDo Fried chicken?” one netizen asked in jest.

Whatever. At least no one’s wiping tears in that TVC because Sharon and Gabby are so past that now.
