Toni Gonzaga and Her Publicity Stunt at McDo
Who goes out in her wedding gown, and with her groom, at a fast-food to personally order food even if she has people she can ask to do it for them?
You won't see me buying cheap junk food on my wedding day. It will be a disgrace to me and my wife (or husband). Our wedding day should be special, and taking me to where everything is wrong is not a great idea.
McDonalds is totally against what people in the Philippines should be promoting - our very own good (great) Filipino food. I can't imagine these fit and fab celebrities endorsing products that offer nothing but an unhealthy diet leading to obesity. Just like Jollibee, and the many other fast-foods that only offer those greasy burgers and fried chickens, their junk only sells because of their excellent marketing gimmicks.
To tell you frankly, I just go to McDo for the toys (and the mascots), or when a friend, colleague or relative is treating, but still I don't order the oily French fries or the "big" breakfast that's not really big. I prefer to just eat the spaghetti or apple pie (that has terribly gone so little). But if given a choice, I will stay away from these junk food restaurants. We have so many restaurants out there that offer better food at reasonable prices. Even the neighborhood "karinderia" offers better choices.
It's obviously a publicity stunt. Whether Toni Gonzaga admits it or not, it's all about the money. She should be saying right now that "I'm a McMcMcMcMcDo endorser eh!"
But you can't really blame them. They are both showbiz personalities. They are hired to do such promotions, may it be crude or not, it's their job to promote in exchange of a rewarding amount. After all, you can't expect me to do such if I was not going to be receiving something in return. An ex-deal would do nice. Even if it means ruining my special day.
Their job is to convince or persuade the people that it's fun to be at McDo even during your special day. The food is so good, we had to personally both step out of the car and order for ourselves, while we wait for people to take photos of us.
It isn't everyday that they get married, so they might as well make the most out of it.
I'm betting the birth of their first child would have Ronald McDonald and the gang visiting them at the hospital with a big paper bag filled with all the junk food that the restaurant has to offer.
