Ber-months has been a combination of excitement and anxiety to all employees. Because we are now entering to the stressful season of saving and spending for the holiday. And this is the season where “petsa-de-peligro” is very inevitable to most of us. To inspire us to taste delicious during these financial conflict, Jollibee gave an extra twist to their viral series.
After adding award-winning actresses Eugene Domingo and Cherie Gil to its cast, Jollibee’s pioneering digital series, 14/29 Petsa de Peligro JolliSerye—now on its second season—brings in another certified star to the mix with actor and singer James Reid.
James has always been a part of the ever-growing Jollibee family and was an endorser of the Filipino fast-food brand’s best-selling Burger Steak and Yumburger. This time around, he joins the JolliSerye gang as Hans Samonte, a handsome copy machine attendant at Happy Calendar House in the newest episode that was released on September 14, 2018.
“It’s been such a fun and rewarding experience to be part of the JolliSerye crew,” Reid shared. “Working with Jollibee is always a great experience but shooting for an episode of JolliSerye is a totally new but equally enjoyable experience for me.”
In this latest episode, the JolliSerye team—composed of millennials working for the publishing company, Happy Calendar House headed by CEO U.G.E. played by Eugene Domingo—is challenged to find the next calendar boys who will join UGE in the 2019 edition of the company’s calendar.
Happy Calendar House’ South Branch announces their plan to dominate the model search with their handsome Brazilian messengers. Having no budget due to Petsa De Peligro, the JolliSerye gang scrambles to find another good-looking employee to pair up with their resident Mr. Pogi ng Marketing James (played by Aldrin Angeles)—and discovers that their new photocopy boy, Hans, perfectly fits the requirement.
While initially hesitant to join the contest, Hans is eventually persuaded by the team to help out in the spirit of camaraderie and the promise of a delicious yet budget-friendly JolliSavers lunch.
Cue in makeovers, beauty shots, witty reality show references, and crave-inducing JolliSavers meals, and soon it’s time for a runway show and pose-off between the contenders from the Main and South Branches.
“Shooting this episode has been fun especially since it’s more comedy than what I usually do. The whole cast and crew have been very supportive all throughout, and it’s been an honor and an unforgettable experience to work with a comedy legend like Ms. Eugene,” Reid said.
