Mom and son duo Regine and Nate Alcasid-Velasquez show what it’s like to have a great time together by simply spending time with each other at home – no need to go somewhere or do something fancy – in their latest Jollibee commercial. The new ad shines a spotlight on how sweet memories are simply made over delicious food; in Regine and Nate’s case, their bonding moments are made more special by the food they absolutely love, which is their favorite pinakamasarap and pinakasulit Jolly Spaghetti.
“As a parent, you tend to give your children everything, but all they want is your time,” shared Regine. “They’ll get tired of toys. It’s still very important to make time for them — one thing he loves to do that we haven’t done lately is paint together. He loves to paint with me.”
Regine enjoys doing these commercials with Nate. She shares one unforgettable moment of how he would have to be told to not eat the Jolly Spaghetti during their commercial tapings.
“This is no joke, he loves Jolly Spaghetti,” she said. “Even before the shoot, he was like, ‘I can’t wait to eat Jolly Spaghetti!’ If he had a choice, he would have already eaten it before filming pa. He even requested to have Jolly Spaghetti also for lunch! That’s how much he loves it.”
“Regine and Nate’s mother-son relationship is really the best example of how important quality time with the family is,” said Jollibee Marketing AVP for Bestseller Products Cathleen Capati. “And this quality time is made even more special and memorable when bonding over their favorite food especially at a time when most are staying at home.”
