Thailand’s 2gether: The Series breakout stars Bright Vachirawit and Win Metawin, together known as BrightWin, appear in the latest campaign of telecommunications giant Globe in time for International Friendship Day.
On Friday, July 30, Globe premiered the video on Facebook as part of their virtual International Friendship Day celebration.
Titled "Stand Together," the video is set to the classic song "Stand by Me" and features the pair finding new ways to connect with friends even in a time of isolation.
“Stand by each other. We got this, together. Atin ang mundo (the world is ours)!” BrightWin said.
Globe also announced that BrightWin will appear in a virtual fan “Friendship Meet,” scheduled to happen on August 14.
Bright and Win rose to international stardom with their hit Boys’ Love series 2gether: The Series, which spurred the genre’s popularity in the Philippines as well as in its neighboring countries in Southeast Asia.
In the show, they played two university students who fall in love with each other after starting out in a pretend relationship. Its sequel, (Still) 2gether: The Series, premiered on August 14.
Their latest project together includes GMMTV’s remake of the classic hit Meteor Garden as members of the iconic “F4.”
On January 27, ABS-CBN managing director Olivia Lamasan said that a project featuring one of the 2gether stars is in the works, in partnership with GMMTV and Dreamscape Entertainment. – Paolo Alejandrino/ Rappler.com
