Vice Ganda shines in McDo chicken ad

Dec 3, 2023

Last month, Vice Ganda was announced as the new face of McDo’s chicken. The Queen talked about its impact.

“Ang saya-saya ko, tapos ang una kong tanong, ‘Why just now?’ Charot-charot lang. Nakakatuwa, nabigla ako, overwhelmed ako. Kasi ‘yung McDonalds, wholesome brand, wholesome brand di ba?

“Pang pamilya ‘yung brand ng McDonalds, tapos for them to even consider me ‘di ba? Ang laking bagay nito not just for me, but for my community, the LGBTOIA+ community, na isang malaking brand ipinagkakatiwala na i-associate nila ‘yung pangalan nila sa pangalan ko. Nakaka-flatter, malaking bagay, big win ito para sa akin.”

Following his popular TV ad for the brand, the Phenomenal Superstar recently teamed up with Paolo Ballesteros. The new ad went viral with positive comments from netizens. 

The said ad was warmly received by drag queens and other Filipinos who lauded the fast food chain for putting the spotlight on LGBTQIA+ icons.

“THE CHILDREN WERE FED!!! Gaganda ng mga nanay ko!! Love youu, @pochoy_29, @vicegandako!! Merry Christmas!!,” drag queen Eva Le Queen commented.

“McFabulous!!!,” drag queen and “Drag Den Philippines” host-producer Manila Luzon exclaimed with heart emojis of varying colors.

“Drag Supreme” Naia also called the collaboration “iconic.”

“Drag Den Philippines” creator-director likewise commented on the collaboration.
