After two years, actor John Lloyd Cruz is making a comeback with a new endorsement.
Cruz, one of the most bankable actors of the Philippine cinema and very effective endorser, once again proved that his fans were still waiting for his return.
In a teaser video posted on the Facebook page of shawarma business Turks a few weeks ago, it showed a back shot of Cruz. The video, which lasted only a few seconds, already has 3.2 million views, and has been shared almost 800, with a large number of comments.
Without any clue on the teaser video, Cruz’s fans already assumed that it was him in the video. Actress Bea Alonzo on her Instagram also posted a screenshot of that teaser video, which garnered almost a million likes.
Today, April 29, Turks finally revealed it was really Cruz who was in the one-minute and 17-second video, showing the actor walking through different destinations that somehow depicted his many travels.
The rugged looks of Cruz in the Turks video titled “Ang Pagbabalik” was way different from his guy-next-door image, and a lot of people in the industry are asking if this signals his return to the limelight. His fans are still wondering about the life he’s been living since his hiatus.
Turks president Gem L. Zenarosa said that he and Cruz never talked anything about his showbiz career or plans during their meeting. He added that he got Cruz as the latest ambassador of Turks because of his great confidence working with the actor.
“I am really grateful that John Lloyd trusts our company, he is a brilliant and very creative young man. Aside from acting we have discovered some of his remarkable talents,” Zenarosa stressed.
He added: “John Lloyd is the best endorser for this because like him, despite his absence in the showbusiness for a couple of years, the warmth and love of his fans for him never dwindles. With our Small Pita Doner we believe that our customers will be happy to know that it is back in our menu.”
“To keep up with the demands of our customers, Turks continues to improve our menu and offerings to satisfy the discriminating taste of our loyal patrons,” Zenarosa stressed.
John Lloyd Cruz now joins the roster of endorsers of Turks such as Piolo and son Inigo Pascual.
