As if the weather isn't sizzling hot enough already, two of the biggest names in showbiz have come together for a major project.
It's something we haven't seen before: Daniel Padilla and James Reid brought together in action-packed collaboration for the first time by two big brands, Pepsi and Mountain Dew.
Even though Daniel and James have been taking over Philippine showbiz as kings of their respective fandoms since 2010, it's the first time the Kapamilya stars are collaborating.
"Excited ako sa maio-offer namin ni James. Sino bang mag-aakala na gagawa kaming dalawa [ng isang collaboration]? May makikita sila na mga eksena dito na first time nila mapanood sa 'min ni James," says Daniel, brand ambassador for Pepsi.
"It's definitely something new I can bring to the fans," says James, brand ambassador for Mountain Dew. This project landed in his lap just at the right moment.
"I've always wanted to do more action," he adds.
The project appeals to both actors. After all, what guy can say no to sports cars, car chases, and even drifting?
"The drifting and driving the cars, [they're] definitely the coolest part about the shoot," James says.
The project is called "Doble Hataw" and has the young idols racing against each other in an action-packed setting: Daniel in his signature denim jacket and driving a sports car, and James sporting his suave threads while maneuvering a pick-up truck.
"Ang 'Doble Hataw' is all about, lahat doble. Doble sa saya, doble sa lupit, doble sa aksyon. At doble rin ang artista," Daniel says. "Ganda ng project na 'to. Bagay na bagay sa 'min ni James."
"It's two cars and two stars. Double the thrill," James adds.
