Anne Curtis: Fearless in saying ‘Yes’

“I never fear or regret saying ‘yes,’ especially to situations and things that can lead me to great, unforgettable experiences,” quipped Anne Curtis, one of the Philippines’ most sought-after entertainment personalities.

With such an open attitude towards life, it’s easy to see why Anne has managed to go from a balikbayan on a holiday to a prominent figure in the showbiz industry for the last twenty years.

“And I have to add that my showbiz career started right in Jollibee Boni, when I was approached by a talent scout,” the actress said. “Jollibee really reminds me of that fateful ‘Yes’ that I said twenty years ago, and look where that brought me!”

Earlier this year, Anne returned to where her impressive career began, but with a sweeter twist as the endorser of Jollibee’s best-tasting and best-selling Burger Steak. The actress calls her Jollibee endorsement as a “homecoming,” and is truly in love with her favorite 100% beefy-linamnam and saucy-sarap rice meal.

‘Best with rice’

Despite her Australian heritage, Anne remains truly Pinay at heart—especially in her favorite comfort foods. She loves a good ulam with white rice, just like millions of Filipinos who enjoy this simple yet filling combination every day.

“I know that there are some who would think that a burger patty doesn’t go well with rice, but Jollibee Burger Steak’s 100% beef patty with its flavorful mushroom sauce really is best paired with a steaming cup of rice,” said Anne.

In her latest TV commercial for Jollibee Burger Steak that began airing last July 9, Anne gives us a couple of reasons to say ‘Yes na Yes’ to this flavor-packed combination.

“The Jollibee Burger Steak is indeed the best-tasting rice meal you’ll have for this really great, affordable price,” shared the actress. “Best-tasting na ang 100% beefy-linamnam pattysaucy-sarap pa ang mushroom gravy, bagay na bagay pa with rice!”

Haven’t tried the Jollibee Burger Steak yet? Take it from true-blue Burger Steak lovers like Anne Curtis and say “Yes na Yes” to the unforgettably delicious dining experience offered by the Jollibee Burger Steak Rice Meal, available for dine-in, take-out, delivery, and drive-thru transactions, starting at P50.00*.

Jolly Spaghetti: Timeless Sweet-Sarap Goodness

New Jollibee TVC captures the tamis-linamnam deliciousness of a classic favorite.

Jollibee, the Philippines’ number one fast-food brand, has always been the dining destination of choice among Filipino kids and kids-at-heart.

The latest TV commercial for the best-selling Jolly Spaghetti, which began airing on March 26, 2017, features the British-Filipino child star Xia Vigor enjoying the product and how its timelessly appealing tamis-linamnam flavor will always bring out the jolly kid in everyone.

Xia is the latest celebrity endorser to join the ever-growing Jollibee family. She was given the official welcome in a media event held at Jollibee Biopolis Macapagal last April 22, 2017. Invited attendees were given a jolly treat with passes to DreamPlay, a DreamWorks-themed activity center at the City of Dreams Paranaque.

“Since its launch nearly four decades ago, the Jolly Spaghetti has remained a favorite among Filipino children from different genrations and walks of life,” said Luis Berba, Jollibee Brand Manager. “Our newest TVC illustrates that unforgettable sweet-sarap feeling that Pinoys get whenever they eat Jolly Spaghetti. It’s like being a jolly kid again, when every moment is filled with fun, good food, and the company of our loved ones.”

“Xia’s genuine love for Jolly Spaghetti and her cheerful and articulate personality are why we believe she’s the best choice as kid endorser of our product.”

Sweet-sarap moments with Xia

Despite the recent national and global attention, the young child actress has been getting through a slew of successful TV shows and viral videos, Xia remains to be like any other Pinoy child. She loves spending time with her family and, of course, eating at Jollibee.

“I like swimming and watching movies with my Mommy and Kuya,” the child actress said. “Even when I wasn’t in showbiz yet, Jollibee has always been my favorite place to eat Jolly Spaghetti with my Mommy, kuya, and cousins.”

When asked why she loves the Jolly Spaghetti, the adorable Xia gamely answered. “I love it because sweet-sarap, tamis-linamnam siya talaga and it has a lot of hotdogs and cheese. Sana more kids like me will keep eating and enjoy Jolly Spaghetti!”

The Pinoy Spaghetti

Jollibee pioneered the introduction of the sweet-style spaghetti in the Philippines. The brand took all the basic elements of a spaghetti dish and elevated it into a treat that Pinoys will definitely love. The rich tomato sauce is carefully seasoned to achieve peak tamis-linamnam goodness. Generous amounts of beefy and juicy hotdog slices are added in for a filling meal. Finally, creamy shreds of cheese are sprinkled on top to complete the one-of-a-kind Jolly Spaghetti taste.

Enjoy the best-tasting, sweet-sarap Jolly Spaghetti for only Php 50.00 Solo and Php 55.00 for the value meal with drink. This sweet-sarap treat is available in all Jollibee stores nationwide and through #87000 Jollibee Delivery.

Jollibee launches its first mobile app using augmented reality

The country’s number one fast-food chain, Jollibee, recently unveiled its first-ever mobile application called JolliDance Showdown app that is sure to be a hit among Jollibee fans of all ages.

The big reveal hosted recently at Ascott Hotel in Bonifacio Global City made public the all-new mobile app that will make use of augmented reality (AR) with the help of the Jollibee Kids Meal box. It allows kids to try some interactive fun with the fast-food chain’s famous mascot, Jollibee.

The app was developed by renowned Los Angeles-based mobile innovation agency, Trigger. The agency has produced applications for other clients like Sony Pictures, Lionsgate Entertainment, and Lucas Film.

During the program, the Trigger team shared their experience in creating the app that captures the lovable persona of the dancing Jollibee. Trigger Senior Director of Client Services Natasha Weinstein shared their impression, “Everyone just really loves going to Jollibee. It struck us an important part of the Philippines’ pop culture.”

This quick immersion of the app’s designers determined the features and the overall appeal of the app. Trigger President and Executive Creative Director Jason Yim explains the app plays on the sense of community. “Getting friends involved and getting your own avatar involved, that’s definitely the most fun part. You can’t help but smile when you do it.”

Going live with Jollibee AR beats

Radio jock Chico Garcia and mom entrepreneur Bettina Carlos, along with her daughter Gummy, were the first to try these features. The experience began by watching the JolliDance Showdown app transform Jollibee’s friendly face on the Jolly Joy Box into a platform. These guests then captured photos for their screen avatars and, after choosing their image on screen, they watched Jollibee and friends enjoy Electro, Pop, and Rock beats.

Other features of the JolliDance Showdown App were also discussed, including unlocking new characters with every visit to Jollibee branches and scanning the Jolly Kiddie Meal promo board located at the store counters.

Yim said, “The app is pushing how we can engage kids with augmented reality. It’s more than just having characters appear. It’s interactive and gives a much deeper experience.”

The event shared the most recent effort of the leading fast-food brand to augment the langhap-sarap experience. Francis Flores, Jollibee Global brand chief marketing officer, says of its new partnership, “We are glad to work with Trigger to help enrich the Jollibee experience for children and for the young at heart with the launch of our JolliDance Showdown App. Being the first local fast-food to come up with an augmented reality game, we are very excited for our loyal customers who love Jollibee and Friends, as this gives them an opportunity to interact in a fun way using their mobile phones and tablets. Combining great-tasting food and augmented reality to level up their Jollibee experience — now that is really an exciting way to engage our customers.”

The JolliDance Showdown App is free for download in iTunes and Google Play Store. Get the app and watch the Jolly Joy Box go live. The Jolly Joy Box comes free with every purchase of the Jolly Kiddie Meal.
