Old school Pinoy Coke print ad

While surfing the web I saw this vintage Coca-Cola poster.

Yes, this is Edgar “Bobot” Mortiz. Back then he has yet to put on weight and would rather direct than act, he was a matinee idol. He is the other part of the Bobot and Vi love team.

Vilma Santos became a star larger than life. While in perspective, Bobot Mortiz owns less popularity compared to the Star of All Seasons, he did had his share of triumph. He was part of the awesome foursome called The Bad Bananas which comprises of highly-acclaimed actors Christopher de Leon, Johnny Delgado, and Jay Ilagan. He was also the man that launched Tropang Trumpo which pretty much restarted the whole gag show genre.

Game over.
