In the Philippines, almost every single day since Maine Mendoza (or Yaya Dub) and Alden Richards was shown on national television, ALDUB has dominated the trending list of Twitter Philippines, and even topped the Worldwide trend, with a record-breaking 24.6 million tweets on one thrilling episode. Maine started her fame on social networking site, Facebook, for her on-point Dubsmash videos of different local and international personalities. Alden, who was then a not-so-famous actor, was struggling with his so-so career. They were both recruited to be part of a supposedly short segment of a noontime show, but then fame caught on for these two. Yaya Dub’s role is a maid, and Alden, a well-off guy, is her prince charming. The tandem’s undeniable chemistry reached chart-topping records on TV, and even dominated the all-day rating, outcompeting shows on the primetime block.
Airing 6 times in a week, the ALDUB nation has never failed to top and dominate the trending list on Twitter throughout the entire day. This is why it is said that ALDUB is a phenomenon up until now. The simplicity of the story and the values they teach the viewers are the main reasons why this show caught up to the hearts of the masses. Everyone, may it be children or adult, could relate to their story.
With these wide exposures of ALDUB, capitalists are in hot competition on signing the love team to endorse for them. As a result, Maine and Alden ended up with much expected endorsement projects in print, social and advertisement media. Examples of the brands they endorse are Talk ‘N Text (local telco mass brand) and McDonald’s. True enough, records show that with all their ALDUB endorsements, the sales revenue boosted.
