Ormoc City Mayor and actor Richard Gomez accepted the Bench Icon Award for his loyalty to the company as brand ambassador at Bench’s Christmas Party in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig last Saturday, December 9.

Goma posted photos of the award with Ben Chan, along with a still from his iconic “Sculler” TV commercial for Bench.  

 

“Sculler” was the first commercial Bench released on television back in 1989. It features Richard rowing a boat with the tune of ‘Claire De Lune’ playing in the background. The commercial won Best in Cinematography at the 12th Advertising Congress - Araw Awards in 1990.
