(SPOT.ph) Flashing red lights. An abandoned warehouse. Sparks raining down from loose cable wires. Two people running toward something—or from someone. Glass shatters as they jump through a window. And then: "Cut!"
Just when things are starting to get interesting, you'll be reminded that this isn't actually a movie. Gerald Anderson and Anne Curtis, both leads in separate films directed by Erik Matti, meet in this new Toyota Vios commercial. Filled with fast-paced camera movement, daring stunts, and heart-pounding music, the commercial will definitely make you wish for the crossover to happen for real.
Both of Matti's films were praised for their commentary on political issues in the Philippines. On The Job tells the gripping story of two prisoners temporarily released from jail to perform contract killings. Anderson starred alongside Piolo Pascual, Joel Torre, and Joey Marquez.
The more recent movie starring Curtis has been praised not only for its execution but also for its relevance amidst the controversial war on drugs in the Philippines. BuyBust is centered on a drug bust in Manila's slums, where a team of officers aim to catch a big-time drug lord, only for the mission to go wrong.
