Phil Younghusband and the Azkals star in new Silver Swan soy sauce commercial
Watch Phil Younghusband eat <em>puwet ng manok</em> and bust out his Tagalog.
Watch Silver Swan’s latest commercial featuring the Azkals
Silver Swan’s newest commercial features Fil-Brit football player and hearthrob Phil Younghusband chomping on puwet ng manok (chicken ass), or ewe in local speak, and busting out punchlines in Tagalog. The 50-second commercial pokes fun at the half-Pinoy striker’s foreign upbringing, and at first shows Phil scoffing at typical Filipino traditions like eating with bare hands. After taking one bite of Soy-sauce-spiked ewe, Phil surprises his teammates by sitting with one leg propped up on the bench, grabbing a chunk of rice with his hands, and eating "Pinoy-style" as one of his teammates puts it. To his stunned teammates, Phil says, "O, anong tinitingin-tingin niyo diyan? Chibog na!"
The commercial was directed by Mark Meily and produced by Adrian Eleazar under Concepts & Beyond.
