Gossip Girl’s Ed Westwick wants to meet Manny Pacquiao
(SPOT.ph) Gossip Girl star Ed Westwick arrived in Manila yesterday, June 1, to shoot for Penshoppe’s Pre-Holiday Season 2011 and Summer 2012 campaigns, reports Saksi. At the airport, the actor laughingly told reporters, "I’m going to be here a couple of days and so far it’s great but I wish Manny Pacquiao was meeting me at the airport."
According to Penshoppe’s press statement sent to PEP.ph, Westwick’s overly confident and sexy "bad boy" character Chuck Bass in the hit series was one of the reasons he was chosen to frontline their new campaigns. Penshoppe Brand Manager Alex Mendoza said that Westwick is a fresh face that will represent the brand’s new and revitalized image.
"Someone like Ed fits the mindset and is admired by our market," Mendoza said, adding that Westwick represents the free, easy and sophisticated casual style of the brand. "His presence and charisma will definitely wake the Philippines to the fact that what is originally Philippine-made can also be worn proudly by a worldwide icon as well as people around the world," Mendoza said.
