WATCH: This hilarious ad pokes fun at all those tired fantaserye cliches

It'll make you more excited to catch Cinemalaya. Wink, wink.

( Tired of unending fantaserye movies that fill the local cinemas for weeks on end? Are you done with seeing the same, aging leading men starring in the same recycled plots?


This new commercial from local ad agency Leo Burnett pokes fun at all the Pinoy action-fantasy tropes that never seem to go away. Edu Manzano plays the perennial lead of a fictional fantaserye franchise.



During a fight scene, an extra who plays a troll stops and begins ranting about everything, from Manzano's glowing sword to their use of characters from other failed fantasy franchises. We won't go into further details, but you need to watch the whole thing...especially until the end.
