Why ALDUB is a hit to the Filipinos?
Well, we Filipinos, likes a Cinderella type of story and we are so greatly affected into love stories where someone who is a prince charming would fall in love to an ordinary lady dreaming to become a princess one day.
And for me, I think that’s what happened to Maine Mendoza’s character when she was given a break by Eat Bulaga to play a role in the afternoon show where she was doing what she was known for: dubsmashing.
When her dubsmash videos went viral online as it was being shared on facebook, Eat Bulaga offered her to do a role as “Yaya Dub” in their ‘Juan For All, All For Juan’ segment.
And from her past interviews, she was honest to say that it has always been her secret dream to become a celebrity as she wrote it on her blog post:
Being a celebrity has always been my dream, at ngayon lang ako maglalakas loob ipaalam sa lahat na bata palang ako gusto ko nang mag artista. I used to think being a celebrity is unattainable (in my case) so I never really considered pursuing show business. I didn’t think I have what it takes to be one; good looks, charisma, talents etc. Pero eto na.. papunta na ako.. I am getting there. – Maine Mendoza
Then by accident, when she saw Alden Richards, hindi na niya napigilan na kiligin. When Eat Bulaga production staff saw the chemistry and as the Eat Bulaga hosts kept teasing Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza a.k.a. Yaya Dub, ALDUB tandem was born and it made Filipinos feel that dreams like a Cinderella fairy tale story still exists in the modern world today.
Let’s go back to the first encounter they had which started the ALDUB phenomenon:
Who would’ve thought that those glance exchanges will lead into a super hit phenomenon called ALDUB. It happened without any script and with no reservations as to what might come out of it. This is where the natural flow of the ALDUB love team came from.
Here is day 2:
Their story progressed but leaving no clue yet to Eat Bulaga’s viewers how the story might evolve I’m sure lahat ng viewers kinikilig na sa episode na ito.
And the rest is history!
Their love team is like a match made to be, call it destiny, call it fate but as their favorite song plays it:
Who does not want a fairy tale like ending?
Who did not dream of a happily ever after?
So there you go, exactly the same answers that you might have why ALDUB became a hit and why it continues to be a hit today because there are so many Filipinos who dreams to have what ALDUB has made them feel through their Kalyeserye.
