MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Valentine’s is for lovers, and McDonald’s knows that too well. Its Valentine commercial featuring former on and off-screen lovers Sharon Cuneta and Gabby Concepcion was a hit.
But now, the American fastfood chain is in trouble. Sharon’s husband, Senator Kiko Pangilinan is suing McDonald’s for the emotional distress and political embarassment he has been experiencing since the commercial aired in the Philippines.
”McDonald’s didn’t ask my permission for them to shoot the commercial. They should have asked for my spousal consent. McDonald’s action was an affront to my respectable position as a Senator of the Philippines, married to Sharon,” Pangilinan said.
Is a divorce also in the making?
