NESCAFE 3 in 1 Philippines TV Commercial “Freshman”

When I first saw this advertisement reminds me of two things, first the times when I was a freshie back in college and two, an old buddy, Chickoy Pura who sang the theme. Without being bias I think the ad got what it takes to be a classic—riding in the archetypal shadow of famous star wars genre with all the aliens on a chewbacca fashion.

The choice of music and the actor is definitely a good pick as well as the rendition of computer generated effects of those aliens roaming around. The theme is quite obvious—freshmen in the alien world with Nescafe serving as a connecting point in the world of unfamiliar faces. The combination of good composition and nice homey feeling rendition of the script makes it a winner.

    alam nyo ba kung anu ibig sabihin ng mga caharacters sa commercial na to?

    ung alien na maraming mata ay chismosa
    the one na maraming kamay is an opportunist
    and the jaguar-skinned alien represents someone who’s into intimacy?
    and coffee, is the symbol of sex or making love
