Daniel Matsunaga admits "elevator scandal" just a teaser for Veet endorsement
Daniel Matsunaga admitted today that the viral video of him supposedly kissing a girl in an elevator was just a teaser for his new endorsement, Veet. "Everything was just fake, you know? There was no kissing scene... I just pretended that I dropped something, then I saw the legs of the girl," PEP.ph quoted Matsunaga as saying.
The video spread among social networking sites earlier this week but Matsunaga could not comment on the controversy because he had to keep the new endorsement under wraps. "Pero ngayon, puwede (But now we can talk about it)," the Brazilian-Japanese model and actor said.
The video that got tongues wagging
He said he asked his girlfriend, actress Heart Evangelista, for permission to do the teaser. "She (said), ’No, it’s fine.’ She (and) her parents knew." He added that she has always supported him. "Every job I have, we always talk. Very important."
Asked about the negative comments online saying the video shows he cheated on Evangelista, he said, "I got caught by surprise." He added, "But I just try to avoid it, of course... Everything (turned out) nice in the end."
