First there was award-winning actress Eugene Domingo, then came the ultimate kontrabida Cherie Gil–now Jollibee’s pioneering digital series, 14/29 Petsa de Peligro JolliSerye—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.
“The 14/29 Petsa De Peligro JolliSerye has been so well-received by Filipino netizens that we really wanted to step up the comedy and charm of our episodes in our second season,” said Cathleen Capati, Jollibee AVP and Group Category Head for Flagships. “We’ve had Cherie Gil and Eugene Domingo on board, and now we have James Reid in a role never seen before by his fans and followers. We truly want to bring entertaining digital content to Pinoy netizens through heartwarming, funny, and relatable stories as seen in our first-ever digital series.”
“I hope that netizens enjoy this JolliSerye episode and remember that you can still have fun and enjoy delicious food during Petsa De Peligro with Jollibee’s JolliSavers.” Reid said.
