Ryan Agoncillo says that he and his family truly believe in the quality of their product endorsements.
Judy Ann Santos and Ryan Agoncillo are probably one of the showbiz couples with the most number of endorsements nowadays. But more than the quantity, Ryan said that he feels honored that a lot of companies see them as effective and trustworthy endorsers. “It feels good to be trusted first by the companies with their products and second it feels good to be trusted by the consumers. Sa mga panahong ito para kang nag-aalok sa kaibigan
. Bad trip naman kung nag-alok ka sa kaibigan
] hindi niya nagustuhan. Sayang naman ang pera niya.
Ryan continued that they truly believe in their product endorsements and are confident with the quality because they use the products themselves. “Pag nilapitan mo kami, tinanong mo kami, masasagot ka namin dahil ginagamit namin
,” he assured.
But aside from him and Juday, their kids—Yohan and Lucho—are also product endorsers. Yohan already has a number of commercials (a hotdog brand, milk supplement, and baby bath soap). But Ryan clarified that they are not yet allowing her to fully join showbiz. “Ngayon,
okay na muna ‘yung pa kome-
Yohan dahil nae
and hindi naiistorbyo ‘yung kanyang
school so shoot lang siya ‘pag
summer o weekend. Pero kumbaga sa kanya laro lang ‘yan, eh. Wala pa siyang
].” He added that they would allow Yohan to join showbiz if she still wants to once she has finished college.
Ryan also explained that Yohan has no concept yet of being a young celebrity endorser. “Hindi kasi namin ini
-encourage na pumasok sa utak niya. Ang alam lang niya gigisingin niya ako ng maaga ‘pag may bagong
commercial na lumabas
, ‘Daddy I’m on TV,’ pero
apart from that, mukhang wala namang
fame kasi ganun pa rin
, she still does what she normally does, hindi naman siya naghahanap ng atensyon.
Recently, the couple’s son, Lucho, was finally shown on TV through a baby bath soap commercial. It was the first time that Lucho was allowed by his parents to appear in public albeit via video. “Inabangan ko ‘yung buong
Sunday [for the commercial]. I stayed at home at inabangan ko talaga. Pwede naman akong humingi ng kopya pero inabangan ko talaga. Iba rin ‘yung
feeling. Kasi ganun din ‘yung
feeling nung unang lumabas ‘yung unang
Yohan,” the proud father admitted.
Ryan continued that there is another version of the commercial where there will be a better view of Lucho which will come out soon.
