If Russia has Ded Moroz; Iran has Amu Nowruz; Germany has Krampus; Yule Lads for those who live in Iceland, Joulupukki for Finland; Mikulas in Central Europ and Santa Claus in the United States, we Pinoys now have our own Christmas icon–JOSE MARI CHAN.
And though he only reminds us of the child in the manger whenever he sees girl’s and boys selling lanterns on the streets–its never officially Christmas until we hear his songs playing on the radio–from the first of September all the way to the first month of the next year.
This year, Shopee has chosen the Veteran singer to be its official ambassador for its biggest holiday season sale events of the year. Affectionately known as the Father of Philippine Christmas music, the singer-songwriter made his debut as the official Shopee 11.11 – 12.12 Big Christmas Sale campaign ambassador at the kickoff event held at Glorietta 2 on October 25, where he made a special appearance and performed Christmas carols to hundreds of mall patrons.
As the face of Shopee 11.11 – 12.12 Big Christmas Sale, Jose Mari Chan also stars in Shopee’s latest Christmas television commercial that will screen nationwide starting October 26.
Terence Pang, Chief Operating Officer at Shopee, said, “Christmas is the most celebrated holiday in the Philippines, and Filipino shoppers are known to start their holiday shopping earlier. In line with this, we are once again bringing back Shopee 11.11 – 12.12 Big Christmas Sale, this time with an even bigger lineup of promotions. We are also honored to have Jose Mari Chan, a household name in the Philippines, join us as our first official Christmas ambassador. Jose Mari Chan embodies the Christmas spirit, and his positive and cheery personality reflects Shopee’s commitment to bringing more joy to shoppers this year-end season.”
“Christmas is a time for us to come together and celebrate. I am thrilled to be joining the Shopee family to spread cheer to all Filipinos this festive season, and to be part of Shopee’s first ever Christmas television commercial. I welcome everyone to join Shopee and I in kickstarting the Christmas season with Shopee 11.11 – 12.12 Big Christmas Sale, and look forward to collaborating with Shopee to deliver a series of surprises this Christmas,” said Jose Mari Chan.
In line with the appointment of Jose Mari Chan as Shopee’s Christmas Ambassador is the launch of the Jose Mari Chan Road to Christmas campaign, which will take place from October 26 to December 12. With this, Jose Mari Chan fans can look forward to a series of exciting Shopee activations with him in the weeks ahead, including once-in-a-lifetime experiences such as the opportunity to sing a duet with him, receive a special dedicated song from him, or to meet and spend time with him on his Shopee Wish Bus tour.
