Do you remember the viral video of McDonalds’ commercial where a sad break-up story was told along with a beautiful rendition of the song ‘Tuloy Pa Rin.’
Just to recap, in the opening of the video, Elisse Joson orders her food from McDonald’s, and when she was about to take a seat, she saw the exact spot that had a painful memory for her. She remembered what happened before when the characters of Elisse Joson and Tony Labrusca were having a heart-breaking moment inside the fast food chain. Labrusca got up and left Joson, who tried to beg for the guy to stay.
In the first part that was aired back in 2016, Joson indulges in a delicious burger and left all the bad memories behind as she continued to move on with her life.
However, in the latest video uploaded by McDonald’s, the video shows an exactly opposite situation of what happened in the first part.
We see the character of Tony Labrusca who dined and ordered his usual food from the fast food chain, when he suddenly saw Joson, who’s all dolled up compared to her get-up back then. He held his tray, and made up his mind to come to her when he was suddenly taken aback after seeing Joson’s new love interest – portrayed by McCoy De Leon.
Labrusca felt bad and was on the verge of tears, when he decided to grab his burger instead. He looked up the sky, which had shown him the sun that symbolizes hope. He smiles, and suddenly the pain he was feeling just a few moments ago disappeared.
The netizens loved the new commercial just like how they enjoyed the first one. Many of them said that this is indeed realistic and sweet, which also made some of them to share their McDonald’s love story.
The storyline was easy to relate with for the audience, which leads to the assumption that many Filipinos had their fair share of painful heart breaks.
