Recently, I attended Tindahan ni Aling Puring Sari-sari Store Negosyo Convention, Puregold’s annual celebration of small business owners across the country. Among the many exciting events lined up for participants, one notable highlight was the official press conference for “Ang Lalaki sa Likod ng Profile,” which took place on the first day.
In attendance was award-winning filmmaker and producer Chris Cahilig, who gave the welcome remarks, while director Victor Villanueva both entertained and inspired the audience as he later related his experiences behind the scenes.
“Ang Lalaki sa Likod ng Profile” is the latest retailtainment offering from the Puregold Channel on YouTube, and came in the wake of “GV Boys” and “Ang Babae sa Likod ng Face Mask”. These online series allow Puregold to reach out to young digital natives looking to connect with classic Filipino stories.
The series revolves around the story of Bryce (Wilbert Ross), a young gamer taking his first uneasy steps into the world of dating with virtual wingman Angge (Yukii Takahashi) by his side.
At the press conference, Wilbert Ross and Yukii Takahashi conveyed their own musings on the story, and showed how onscreen chemistry can translate into real-time attraction as they charmed the audience. The dashing Wilbert especially impressed attendees with a song number during the intermission.
As expected, the supporting cast of “Ang Lalaki”—Kat Galang (Genski), Migs Almendras (Ketch), Marissa Sanchez (Bessie), Star Orjaliza (Yaya Aimee), Moi Marcampo (Chili Anne), TJ Valderrama (Cyrus), and Anjo Resurreccion (Jerry)—were also around to field questions during the open forum.
Big surprises awaited participants at the press conference. Grocery packs worth P2,500 each were raffled off, followed by grand prizes such as brand-new smartphones and laptops.
All in all, the press conference for “Ang Lalaki sa Likod ng Profile” turned out to be as fun and exciting as the show itself. Vincent Co, President of Puregold Price Club Inc., expressed his satisfaction with the proceedings. “We are always delighted by the chance to entertain our fellow Filipinos,” said Co. “And we’ve been able to do that with the help of the hard-working cast and crew of ‘Ang Lalaki sa Likod ng Profile.’ We hope everyone enjoyed the chance to see them up close and personal at this press conference.”
