An O, WOW! Moment with Elmo Magalona & Oishi
I was invited to the press launch and unveiling of Oishi’s latest O, WOW! Campaign endorser. I had no clue whatsoever who it would be so I moved all my morning plans so that I could be one of the first to find out. *eager beaver mode* XD
When I got there, a giant O, Wow! bag was handed to me and they said “Good luck if you can fit everything there!”. I imagined the place would look like a Santa Clause convention after the event.
I spent the afternoon guessing who the latest endorser of Oishi would be with this fun group: (L-R) Richard, Michelle, Franco, Rowena. I remember one of them even suggested it was American Idol cutie, David Archuleta. Fail.
Oishi goodies and gifts kept coming and coming after every clue ala Oprah’s Favorite things style. I tried to google the clues/ Elmo’s O, Wow! moments but nothing came up until I tweeted the following:
Clues: 17 year old boy that recently got in to College of St. Benilde and his father was a singer too.
Lo and behold! 2 of my followers were able to guess immediately that it was Elmo because they knew that the late Francis M had a 17 year old son. Gosh, I’m so uninformed when it comes to showbiz. I need to watch TV and read magazines more often.
I bet this kid^ felt like it was Christmas in April. Hee. :>
So finally, after filling up our bags and giving us lots of excess baggage, Elmo revealed himself and showed us his wicked dance moves. It was such an O, Wow! moment.
It was my first time to see Elmo in the flesh and I could clearly see his resemblance to his father and super cool mom, Pia.
Elmo Magalona is the perfect endorser for the O, Wow! campaign because he’s a fresh new face in the food industry. Seeing his killer smile made me wish that I was 17 again so I could scream like a fan girl and not be judged by the people there. Lol.
Tried to get a photo with him but the media got in my way first. Boo! But I’m happy with this close up shot of him. O, Wow! Such a cutie!
All of us got to take home tons of Oishi snacks and gifts. The perfect goodies to bring during our family outings this summer.
I grew up with Oishi snacks and I can still remember the very first time I tried the Prawn chips. I’m very happy that they’ve created several new snacks for us to enjoy. I’ve already tried almost all the variants inside the bag except for the Baked Porky Pops. Oh my, I’m never going to buy chicharon again because this tastes better and is easier to find. I must say, it’s even better than Marty’s Vegetable chicharon. It was an O, Wow! moment for my taste buds. :-)
So, what’s your O, Wow! moment?
