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.


D Beckham has done it again!

After being the man of Calvin Klein, David Beckham have hundreds of ways to make ladies, and ladies at heart, be wowed and suffer from hyperventilation, every time he poses as a model for a certain underwear brand. This time, I can see him run, swim and pant in an advertisement for H&M…wearing nothing but, oh well his great lean bod and an underwear!

David worked with Guy Richie, the director behind Sherlock Holmes movies and Snatch, to create a campaign for H&M Bodywear. I must say, for someone who’s on his late 30’s, David know how to really present himself in public and be one of the most effective promoter for a clothing line whether that be for Shirts, pants, undergarments or shoes…of course, everyone’s fave is him wearing nothing but his undergarments on. For this 1 minute and 29 seconds ad, shows David running in some streets in Los Angeles, and my eyes got widened on the part where he needs to fix some parts of his underwear before chasing the car again! I hope this ad will also make real guys feel good to have a pair of undergarments from H&M.

Here’s the ad every D Beckham’s fan has been waiting for…breathe in…breathe out

Influence @ Influenster

I was going through my daily task…updating my Instagram account, when something caught my attention: a friend’s picture with a box of seemingly ordinary stash of goodies in a box. I am used in seeing pictures like that in Instgram; people will post whatever new stuff they have, what they had for dinner, lunch or breakfast, or other things expensive or not. What tickled my fancy was the tag #Influenster. I was like… “what the fish is this?? another social media site??” So at times like that, I did nothing but click the hash-tag, browse through their Instagram account, and there, I got my first introduction on what’s the new trend that has 5000 plus followers on it.

Call Me Maybe Parodies

WARNING: This post can cause the fatal LSS (Last Song Syndrome).

Not so long ago, there was a viral video in which some models in the metro (seriously, do I really have to name them all?! argh) made a parody of  Carly Rae Jepsen’s Call Me Maybe. Can we please give the credit to Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez and their crew for making the original one?! Now who ever created or directed the “Call Me Maybe” video in which these models dance to, didn’t have the creative mind to even change the credit made at the end of the song…in local terms “gayang gaya eh” (they copied even the credit’s format).

Before anyone in their great mind get to copy another Call Me Maybe parody, let me share three of the best parody of the song. Call Me Maybe is every where…and I mean EVERY WHERE and some people can’t just get enough of it. Well, it’s a fun song anyway.

First in my list is the 2012 USA Olympic Swimming Team’s Call Me Maybe. Gawd! It’s funny to see guys dancing this song, wearing only their swimming trunks! Have fun!

Can’t get enough of great bods dancing this song. Wait till you see  Abercrombie & Fitch guys when they made a parody of this song October of last year. Abs, abs abs!! Beat that!

Then finally, who said tough guys don’t know how to have fun? Enjoy as the U.S. Marines stationed in Afghanistan dance and lip-sync to Carly Rae Jepsen’s hit song. Boys (and girls) do just want to have some fun.

At least you know who did it first. Hi five to Carly Rae Jepsen!
