JOLLIBEE Yum Burger Introduces Pinoy Millenials' FRAMILY

Jollibee, the number one family fast food chain, has coined the term "Framily" in its newly launched Jollibee Yum Burger made-for-digital video, to refer to a group of Pinoy millennial best friends who have come to embrace each other like real members of their family. Thus the term "framily" –
friends who are like family to each other.

The Jollibee Yum Burger video portrays how Pinoy millennials have such a time-tested bond with each other that  they take on roles akin to family members: May kumu-kuya (plays the role of a brother), uma-ate(an elder sister), nagpapaka-mommy (mom), at tumitita (aunt). 

These family-like roles are depicted in moments like when eating their favorite Yum Burger, whose langhap-sarap patty that's made with 100% pure beef have been loved by generations of youth.

For these Pinoy millennials, friendships that are 100% tested remain unsurpassed. And when it comes to food favorites, they patronize those which, like their friendships, have been time-tested and passed their discriminating taste buds,  just like the best-tasting Jollibee Yum Burger.

"Despite being exposed to the fast-paced, ever-evolving culture and lifestyle these days, millennials still value consistency and the unique character in relationships and things that have stood the test of time and remained constant," said Kent C. Mariano, Jollibee Assistant Vice President for Marketing. 

"For them, there is nothing like 100% samahan, at 100% sarap na maasahan," he added.

Win an All Expense Paid Trip Just by Watching 'The Ultimate BROcation' on Kix

KIX, action entertainment TV channel, will premiere a new reality show, The Ultimate BROcation, tomorrow, December 14, at 9pm. It is a hilarious reality show about four celebrities from different countries discovering Hong Kong in an all-expense paid vacation, tailor-made for bros.  The show stars our very own R&B sensation Billy Crawford along with 3 other Asian celebrities: Thailand's "bad boy" DJ and TV host P.K.; award-winning Malaysian hip hop artist SonaOne; and Singaporean maverick chef Bjorn Shen. These bros will bond in Hong Kong for five days with no girlfriends, no kids and no sleep, oh and get this – these four guys don't even personally know each other. 
The BROs' 5-day trip to Hong Kong is undoubtedly filled with amazing party scenes, food trips, fast cars, unique adventures and of course, a whole lot of hilariousness. 

Catch their crazy antics as the BROs tried bubble soccer and martial arts fighting stunts, which are a lot harder than they look.  They also tried the fly boarding adventure, where each BRO got to channel their inner 'Iron Man' in an attempt to 'fly' on a water surface. Let's just say that it made their superhero dreams come true. And speaking of feeling super, they also raced each other to the top of The Peak. But instead of focusing on the race, the BROs set their male egos aside and enjoyed the experience and of course, the amazing view, with a couple of bro-hugs on the side. 
If you want to experience your own BROcation, don't miss the chance to join "The Ultimate BROcation Watch and Win Contest"! The winner can tag along two friends and experience the best of Hong Kong like never before. All you have to do is go online at: and answer a simple question. That's it! 
The contest period starts now until January 11, 2017!

Watch The Ultimate BROcation, premiering only on KIX, December 14, at 9PM. 

Award-Winning Novel LIVE BY NIGHT Now a Movie Starring Ben Affleck, Elle Fanning, Zoe Zaldana and Chris Cooper

Based on Dennis Lehane’s bestselling novel, Warner Bros. Pictures’ Live by Night was a true passion project for Ben Affleck, who says, “As a filmmaker, this was a chance to pay homage to the classic Warner Bros. gangster movies of the 1930s through the `70s.  I grew up watching them and they had an epic, sprawling feel that really took you into a different world, a different era.”

Affleck adapted the screenplay from Lehane’s novel of the same name; the two first collaborated when Affleck made his acclaimed directorial debut with his screen adaptation of Lehane’s crime thriller Gone, Baby, Gone.  Lehane served as an executive producer on Live by Night.

Creatively speaking, Ben and I are a unique fit - and it’s not just the Boston thing, though the Boston thing is big,” Lehane smiles.  “There’s something special about Ben’s aesthetic.  His first time in the director’s chair was with ‘Gone Baby Gone,’ and he did such a beautiful job, I love that film.  So when I heard he was going to adapt Live by Night, I was happy to be working with him again.  And like before, watching this book transmogrify in Ben’s hands, from the screenplay on, was a special thing.”

As a lifelong film buff, Affleck posits that the story has all the tropes that made him a fan of the gangster genre in particular: beautiful women, dangerous men, cops, the mob, shootouts, car chases…the whole fiery, combustible mix.  “As soon as I read Dennis’s book I knew that there was something there for anyone who just really likes to have a great time at the movies.”

Leonardo DiCaprio’s production banner, Appian Way, held the rights to the book, which Affleck read at the suggestion of DiCaprio’s producing partner, Jennifer Davisson.  “Our company is constantly looking for stories about great men - which doesn’t necessarily mean good men, just that they have greatness in them in one way or another - and what they sacrifice for that,” she explains.  “One of the things Dennis does so well is dissect the male ego in a really complex and interesting way, and that’s something I think Ben does equally well.  We had the property, but when Ben was reading the book, it was clear how much he liked it and that it was right for him.  When we read Ben’s beautiful script, the same Lehane sensibility jumped off the page.”

Producer Jennifer Todd agrees.  “Ben is attracted to Dennis’s stories, and this one in particular really excited him: the time period, the characters, going from Boston to Florida.  It all felt like nothing else we had looked at.  Add to that the central character Joe, who is not quite a bad guy and not quite a good guy but caught somewhere in between the two, so he makes his choices, but he feels the consequences.  Where does he really belong?

Live by Night tells the story of Joe Coughlin (Affleck), a WWI vet who’s a self-proclaimed anti-establishment outlaw, despite being the son of the Boston Police Deputy Superintendent. Joe’s not all bad, though; in fact, he’s not really bad enough for the life he’s chosen. Unlike the gangsters he refuses to work for, he has a sense of justice and an open heart, and both work against him, leaving him vulnerable time and again - in business and in love. Driven by a need to right the wrongs committed against him and those close to him, Joe heads down a risky path that goes against his upbringing and his own moral code. Leaving the cold Boston winter behind, he and his reckless crew turn up the heat in Tampa. And while revenge may taste sweeter than the molasses that infuses every drop of illegal rum he runs, Joe will learn that it comes at a price.
Starring with Affleck are Elle Fanning, Brendan Gleeson, Chris Messina, Sienna Miller, Zoe Saldana, and Oscar winner Chris Cooper.

Opening across the Philippines on January 18, 2017, “Live By Night” is distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

MINUTE TO WIN IT Tests Celebrity Kids’ Skills in ‘Last Kid Standing’

“Minute to Win It” serves up more fun and excitement this Christmas season as it once again gives kids a shot at winning big prizes in its “Last Kid Standing” edition, which begins on Monday (Dec 19) on ABS-CBN.
Like in “Last Man Standing,” eight kiddie players will battle it out in a series of six challenges with no time limit, using only ordinary objects that can be found at home and in the office. The player who is last to accomplish or cannot finish the challenge will be eliminated after each challenge, until only two players remain.

These two kiddie players will go straight to the Head-to-Head Challenge, where they will face off in three nerve-wracking challenges.

The competition will be made even more exciting because the first player who completes each challenge first gets to win toys, gadgets, appliances, or trips to different local and international destinations.

The player who wins two out of the three games in the Head-to-Head challenge will play the Ultimate Challenge, where he or she will be given the chance to win the P1 million-jackpot prize.

Kapamilya child stars Clarence Delgado, Raikko Mateo, Alonzo Muhlach, Vito Quizon, Marco Masa, Esang de Torres, Chun Sa Jung, and Nhikzy Calma are just some of the first Kapamilya child stars who will play in the show, and will face off with regular players who successfully auditioned.

Since “Minute to Win It” returned to television last July, it has consistently rated highly and remains to be the most watched game show in the country. This year, it has produced two millionaires: actresses Jodi Sta. Maria and Meg Imperial.

But aside from the program giving away prizes and helping out Kapamilya players, its host Luis Manzano has also given back to some of those who participated in its challenges. Luis has paid for the dentures of Tatay Roman, a dedicated father and sari-sari store owner. Luis also donated a tricycle to Kuya Onio, and paid for the birthday party of his daughter.

Don’t miss “Minute to Win It: Last Kid standing” beginning Monday (December 19) Mondays to Fridays on ABS-CBN. For updates on the program, visit or follow @MinutePHL on Twitter and Instagram.
