PLDT myDSL’s best commercial for me is…
Have you heard of “Anna Banana” in the PLDT myDSL commercials? It is a series of mini videos that started with Derek Lorenzo singing for a girl named Anna. Although the response he got wasn’t what he expected (as he got busted), another girl made a video who became his Anna Banana.
Here’s the videos that I’m talking about.
So what can be learn or pick-up from these commercials aside from PLDT myDSL’s internet connection speed that allowed the Lorenzo family to stream videos without any lag or buffering issues?
The more important connection (aside from internet connections) would be the connection to the family which was evident in these commercials. As we go through life, we would be enjoying the perks of living such as meeting new friends, getting a job and making lots of money, falling in love to name a few. However, what happens when life doesn’t go our way? When we are down and need support from somebody? Who are you going to turn to?
In my case, the first thing that comes into mind would be my family. One thing that I’ve learned in life that your family will always be there for you to support you. Even if you don’t appreciate or remember them when you are enjoying life; the moment life kicks you in the nuts, they will be there with a hand stretched out ready to help you get back up.
Among the four videos that I’ve watched, I can really relate to the 2nd video because on several times that I have been down (e.g. failed in class, broken heart), my family has always (and I mean really always) been there for me. Even if they are busy with their own personal lives, they would really make time to for me (e.g. my father would go into my room and have a 1on1 with me; my mother would call me to ask for updates and give advices). These are the moments that I really cherish especially since we are currently miles apart since 2003 when I went to Manila for college.
Till next time,
All videos were taken from PLDT myDSL Anna Banana’s YouTube Channel. Add it to your subscription so that you will be updated on the latest happenings in Derek’s family. For example, I didn’t know that they had a fourth video (Booster the lost dog) until I browsed through the channel.
