Taylor Lautner: from California to EDSA

Another day had passed and I was on my way home when I was stunned at a billboard in EDSA: there was Taylor Lautner, and he was like greeting everyone “GOOD MORNING MANILA”, on his fit tees, gorgeous bod and look that makes ladies go gaga. There he is, posing as a new ad model for Bench. Good catch for this one Mr. Ben Chan!


It was July 19 this week, when Bench officially announced on their Twitter account that the Twilight hunk will be their Global Benchsetter, among other big names in the music industry like Adam Lavine and Jessica Sanchez. Some other international stars once graced the billboard in one of the busiest road in the city were Liam Hemsworth, Lucy Hale, Micheal Travino, and Joe Jonas.

According to ABS-CBN News site, the campaign was shot by Anthony Mandler, photographer, TV commercial and music video director. I guess all Bench and Taylor Lautner fans are just hoping for him to visit Manila soon.

Beyonce and Pepsi “Live for Now”

Now is the day to remember, for this is the time when people will be seeing Beyonce’s face printed on Pepsi cans. Beyonce in can…that’s what I thought of when I saw pictures of her face marked on cans, showing her support in the company’s “Live for Now” campaign. This is a smart move, making it appear like a limited edition cans that all Pepsi and music lovers can have.


As the product’s brand ambassador, she was able to snag a deal which worth’s about $50 million dollars! All I can say is…whoaw!! Today, I think Pepsi will be able to come up with a mentality, in which their product will be always associated with Beyonce or the other way around; it will be a breeze for them to achieve this, since she’s not just a Pop star but a businesswoman too, so I think she can really contribute a lot on how to promote the product and reach thier target market.


On one of Beyonce’s interview, she said “Pepsi embraces creativity and understands that artists evolve…As a businesswoman, this allows me to work with a lifestyle brand with no compromise and without sacrificing my creativity.” True enough, I guess it will be a win-win case for both parties…and I mean it will be good for Jay-Z too (*wink*wink*). Beyonce started to endorse Pepsi way back 2002, but only this time she got it big as the face of the company.

Tiesto and Marcel Woods vs PSY Mash-up

I was having this conversation with a friend, when he shared me this link which he said, “will take your stress away”.

After 3 minutes and 40 seconds, this made me really want to dance the rodeo moves. If you’re into trance like me, put a good vibes mood in Oppa Gangnam Style craze, as Tirgan Oganezov and Burzhuy mash it up with Tiesto and Marcel Woods “Don’t Ditch”, thus with the title “Don’t Ditch the Gangnam Style”. I guess not everyone can’t get rid of this another infectious song, that they made a good twist to it and justify why it’s still fun to dance this song. For those who created this, 5 stars for you guys!!

Like it or not, I know you’ll enjoy the video! 😀
