Jollibee, the well-loved fast-food chain brand is not only known for their wide array of comfort food; they are also known to spark joy in our hearts through their heartwarming short films. Your heart would’ve surely been touched one way or the other by their numerous “Kwentong Jollibee” series. Truly, these short films have made us all laugh, cry and fall in love over and over again.
And now, through Jollibee Studios YouTube channel, Jollibee will once again make our hearts skip a beat with the much-awaited return of John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo in “One True Pair” the movie streaming starting today, December 1.
In Jollibee Studios’ newest 30-minute film, it discusses what makes a love that lasts in a poignant and heart-tugging story that brings together the country’s most iconic love team.
With its teaser ad video gathering over 44 million views on Facebook and YouTube, the pair’s much-awaited on-screen reunion definitely brought a lot of excitement among long-time fans. The anticipation and joy from the public were truly felt back in October when leaked photos from their shoot came out. When it was revealed that it was for a Jollibee project, this excited people further, as Jollibee has been known to produce memorable short films that never fail to bring joy and touch one’s heart.
“At Jollibee, we have told so many stories about love and its different kinds. Now, we are looking at a love that goes beyond romance–a love that’s unflinching and a love that lasts,” said Francis E. Flores, Jollibee Foods Corporation Philippines Country/Regional Marketing Head and Jollibee Philippines Marketing Head. “With One True Pair The Movie, we wanted to deliver that powerful message of how some pairs are perfect because their love is one that goes beyond romance. And what better way to do that than having John Lloyd and Bea star in the film. In fact, we wanted this film to be very meaningful, not just to the fans but to John Lloyd and Bea as well. So, during the development process, we made sure that they could share their personal insights and creative input about the story.”
The celebrity pair themselves have also expressed how pleased they are to be working together again after such a long time, especially when they found out that the project with Jollibee won’t just be a regular fast-food commercial, the usual romcoms, or follow the typical Pinoy drama plot.
In one of John Lloyd’s social media posts he said that, “Excited ako ibahagi sainyo ang #JollibeeOneTruePairMovie dahil isa to sa mga projects kung san nabigyan rin ako ng pagkakataon to share my thoughts and ideas”.
“It didn’t even feel like a shoot; it felt like I was hanging out with an old friend, so easy and comforting. Ganun siguro talaga kapag matagal mo nang nakasama, kahit lumipas pa ang panahon, may mga bagay talagang masarap balikan,” Bea Alonzo also said in her Instagram page.
Also true to Jollibee-produced films, One True Pair The Movie is directed by multi-awarded director, JP Habac. “I was very happy to take on this Jollibee project about a different kind of love. When we talk about love, it’s always about either finding the right person and spending the rest of their lives with them. But in reality, love is such a complicated emotion with so many facets. People can also love a person with all their heart without being romantically in love with them,” said direk JP. “With Jollibee Studios’ One True Pair The Movie, we wanted to talk about the powerful truth of loving someone means loving them always.”
