Petsa de Peligro—those few days when one has to go tiis-tipid before the next paycheck comes in—is an experience that most working-age Pinoys can relate to. This period (which usually occurs near the 15th and 30th of each month) often becomes a creative opportunity for the budget-challenged, dodging lunch-out invites from their officemates.
For many Filipinos, “masarap” is often equated to “mahal,” which makes dining out for lunch more problematic for those on a tight petsa de peligro budget. To avoid losing face when declining invitations for a “masarap” lunch, one often has to resort to making excuses such as “I’m still full eh” or “I’m on this very strict diet kasi.”
Jollibee’s latest TV commercial, which aired last September 17, 2017, proposes a truly creative way of getting out of this typical petsa de peligro trap: ride a giant robot, and run away!
The commercial begins with an all too familiar situation: a group of young employees deciding where to eat lunch, when someone innocently suggests going somewhere “masarap.” Sensing a threat to their limited budget, three guys unleash their secret weapon to escape spending more than what they are prepared to.
