FASHION PULIS: Unexpected behavior

Sometime ago when traveling was not restricted and overseas shows were done without much hassle, OFWs managed to see how favorite celebrities behaved towards their fans at the foreign airport.

First Celebrity (FC) was chilling when she was approached if the OFWs could have a photo with her. FC was a highly admired personality because of her hit movies, competent hosting, and amiable attitude on the screen. The group was taken aback as FC stood up and expressed displeasure with her non-verbals. They realized that whatever they thought FC should be was merely a projection.

Meanwhile, Second Celebrity (SC), who was well-loved for his hosting and comedic skills, was hard to pin down. Literally. SC kept moving around to the point that his walking to and fro seemed to show the group he did not want to pose with them. The group was puzzled at SC’s avoidance, as no one wanted to have a photo with him anyway.

Third Celebrity (TC)’s behavior was most unexpected. TC, who is a favorite versatile actor, is known to be aloof, not opinionated, and often shies away from the public. However, he proved to be very different compared to FC and SC. He agreed to have a photo but had one request. The group understood and agreed. TC requested politely and carefully if they could have a group photo instead of individual shots.

Although all three might have the same level of popularity, their attitude towards ordinary Filipinos made the difference as to who is kept in a fan’s heart.

‘A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events and outcomes. It is a catalyst and it sparks extraordinary results.’ − Wade Boggs

Demanding duo
Many companies recognize the value of an endorser. Several go through great lengths to hire the services of a personality who has the image that matches the identity of the endorsed product. Hence, the choice is critical given that the celebrity’s demeanor can make or break the sales.

Sometime ago, a company thought of hiring the services of a Famous Duo (FD). FD was hot and their faces, the company believed, can bring their products into the market and subsequently grab a commendable market share. The company managed to obtain the services of FD, and the bosses were surprised.

Unexpectedly, FD made demands for their product shoot. They wanted the most expensive production team, stylists, make-up artists, etc. The company team was aghast at the insistence of FD for their shoot. They had no choice but to adhere just to make sure the company gets FD’s faces on their marketing promotions.

While FD’s fame rose, unfortunately, as years passed, the company did not and had to close shop.

‘High demands and expectations without skill development, encouragement or the feeling of a "win" will lead to resentment. Demanding perfection is exhausting on the part of the person making the demands and on the person of whom the perfection is demanded.’ - Daniel Bates
