MANILA, Philippines – It was a series of hugot-driven viral videos that put Tony Labrusca on everyone’s radar, specifically, two McDonald’s ads released in March 2017. In the ads, Tony played a guy who breaks up with his girlfriend, only to have his hopes squashed at any chance of reunion when he runs into her with a new man.
As people related to the pain of a breakup, the ads turned Tony into the poster boy for heartbroken exes everywhere.
Strangely enough, his latest role as a werewolf in fantasy series La Luna Sangre also made him the subject of heavy online bashing – not for his performance, but because he posed a threat to a KathNiel happily ever after as his character wooed Kathryn Bernardo’s character, Malia.
Tony, of course, took all the bashing in stride, and emerged victorious. A new McDonald’s ad, supposedly a follow-up to his earlier breakup ads, shows Tony’s character having dinner with a mystery woman. The outlook is positive not only for his character in the ads, but for Tony himself who, at the rate he’s going, has all the potential to be a household name.
