“Masayang masaya po kami na nandito sila lahat. Maraming salamat po sa lahat ng nanood at mga manonood pa,” he added.

According to Kris Aquino, she with her co-producer and co-star in the film Vic Sotto sought the support of Proctor & Gamble or P&G for their movie via a “formal business presentation.”

“We’re getting so much support from our P&G family. Siya, because of Tide, ako because of Ariel, Downy, Safeguard and Pantene. Bumili sila ng more than P100 million worth of spots for the movie,” shared Kris.

Expect to see the movie “My Little Bossing” that is also doubles as a commercial for  Tide,  Ariel, Downy, Safeguard and Pantene.

The movie director Marlon Rivera explained that he didn’t have a hard time “weaving” the products into the story.

“Twenty six years ko ng ginagawa ito so alam ko na ang gagawin ko. ‘Yung kuwento kasi may mga bata so madaling ipasok yung kinakain, at pinaglalaruan. I’m very happy na yung mga producers ko, pumayag na hindi ganung ka-commercial ang nangyari. ‘Yung ibang eksena kailangan mo ng produkto so suwabeng-suwabe.”
