As a Filipino kid, there’s so much love and compassion when Grandparents take care of us. They often play a vital role in the lives of their grandchildren. With a love that equals that of parents (or mostly exceeding to the point of spoiling us hehe), they strive to give their apos (grandchildren) everything they can offer despite their frail health or limited resources.
This Grandparents’ Day, Jollibee celebrates the selflessness and unconditional love of lolos and lolas for their apos in “Garapon”, the newest video installment in the award-winning Kwentong Jollibee series.
Directed by Sheron Dayoc, “Garapon” narrates the story of how a grandmother sets aside any amount she can just to give her grandson something that would make him happy.
“For Filipinos, grandparents are the treasures of the family. While they may sometimes appear as strict, they give us exceptional love and guidance in such a way parents simply can’t. This is something that the younger generations can learn to appreciate from their lolos and lolas,” said Francis Flores, Jollibee Global Brand Chief Marketing Officer and Jollibee Philippines Marketing Head.
The Kwentong Jollibee video follows how a 7-year-old boy, Kyle, unravels the constant wonders his Lola Naty does as they spend their days together, discovering the reason behind his lola’s selfless behavior.
