A Bad Move

The project had well-meaning intentions. In fact, most critics praised the project for bringing together two top performers, who managed to bring life to their characters. The director is even one of the brightest in the industry, whose movies are often worth the wait. Until the project was shown, everything was going well. The first day earned a reputable take at the box-office and was expected to set a trend. Then, the weekend promo came and after which, all expectations plummeted and the project was doomed.

Sadly, the fate of the said project was sealed by Comebacking Celebrity (CC) who could not help himself but express an honest opinion. By being honest, CC miscalculated that his words would touch the sensitivity of netizens, who suddenly realized his way of thinking. The snowball effect became reality. A call to boycott the movie was posted and apparently, people followed.

Immediately, the management called for a meeting to assess what was happening. How can a project that had all the good elements of a hit movie fail? During the meeting, the heads were lamenting how the project’s earnings for almost a week could not even cover the production costs. Someone pointed out the social media call to boycott the project and thus led to the spontaneous answer of CC.

One of the writers of the said show where CC made his remark defended their show. The segment has been part of the show and the production had no control over what the guests would say. Hence, the poor box office result should not be blamed on their show. CC was caught unaware and could not say anything. As a stop-gap measure, all videos of the controversial statement of CC were pulled out of the Internet and the company’s social media platforms.

The bigger effect is that the Christmas campaign for a popular product synonymous with CC has been cancelled. Perhaps, the company felt the opinion of CC has no place in their company. Besides, social media might suddenly call for a boycott of the company given the presence of CC. Then, CC allegedly has another product endorsement and that was cancelled as well. A planned project with CC and Gorgeous Personality (GP) was shelved for the meantime. Subsequently, CC was advised not to react nor respond to anything that has to do with his statement.

‘You are master of what you say until you utter it, once you deliver it, you are its captive. Preserve your tongue as you do your gold and money. One word could bring disgrace and the termination of a bliss.’― Ali Ibn Abi Talib A.S

    1. Ah, flop pala sa box-office? Maybe hindi naman special ang movie.

    2. Yep it is. And it’s one of the reasons why it failed. Now tameme siya eh. And friends from J also confirmed the cancelling of his endorsement. Well, madami na disappoint, including me, maybe I’m expecting more from an actor like him.

  3. easy peasy. A. xmas campaign cguro is with J.

  4. Bakit kailangan ishelve yung next project niya? Malay natin baka hindi na galit ang tao at hindi naman dapat magalit sila sa opinion ni A.

    1. This is A. What a fiasco! The network scored an own goal with this one and it may be time for the show's editors to wake up; based on a few recent controversial episodes that have irked viewers and fans of the affected parties, the "anything for laughs and ratings approach" doesn't always work.

    2. Agree ako 2:13. Walang appeal and movie

    3. Same. Unlike mga movies nya before na trailer pa lang, exciting na.

      Delete
    4. Me too. Dina sya katulad ng dati and yung girl naman Di na din sikat

      Delete
    5. Maybe a different leading lady would’ve made a difference. Walang appeal yung girl and they didn’t really have a spark together to begin with.

    6. Regardless, mas hit siguro kung ni-revive na lang ang AM-LS tandem. Mas bagay sila at mas papatok. Di bagay sina A at B sa age at looks kaya nagflop ang project. Sayang...dami pa namang promo pero di man lang humabol kahit konti sa CarGel.

  10. A lesson to artistas, do not underestimate the collective power of netizens.. Nasa aming kamay ang kasikatan at pagkalaos niyo... Alagaan ang image at branding.. Nagmamahal, Bashers at Supporters

    1. OA opinyon ni A yun. Ayaw niyo ng mga artistang plastik pero kapag nagpakatotoo ayaw niyo din.

      Delete
    2. Words have consequences though. The problem with A was that the netizens discovered that he's balimbing.

      Delete
    3. Opinion nya yun at free sya sabihin yun pero di sya free of the consequences ng opinion nya... at ang opinion nya nagpapakitang sabaw sya...

      Delete
    4. 2:20 e sa hindi din sila agree sa opinyon niya anong magagawa mo

      Delete
  11. I think the movie was destined to be a flop in the first place. As we all know that A & B no longer have thay box-office appeal.

    ReplyDelete
  12. This is A. Christmas campaign is with J. Silent majority rules. So di rin pala nanood ang mga nag support kunwari sa kanya sa statement nya na yon.

  13. I didnt like the movie tbh. I hope ma-realize din yun ng bosses. I did not recomment it din talaga eh. Fell short.

  14. Thats the problem with democracy. We are free to say anything na gusto natin pero pag d gusto ng iba gagawa sila ng paraan to ruin the person that exercise his democracy.

    1. Grabe nga. There's too much democracy in this country and yet some people say wala na raw democracy. Hays Pinas napakagulo mo.

  15. Sino kaya si GP?

    ReplyDelete
  16. in my opinion, it's not really about the statement or call to boycott but the trailer of the movie just didn't entice moviegoers, if they made a better trailer maybe regardless of the issues, it would have been a box office success

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The trailer didn't show anything interesting. Masyadong pa mysterious.

      Delete
  17. Anong statement to?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Kaloka... Hindi man lang nabawi ang gastos...

  19. May ganong ganap pala? Personaly hinsi ako nanood kasi pangit yong reviewa.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I think sometimes the “show” should be reminded now to be careful with their questions. Minsan, masyadong matapang ang mga questions and guests have no choice but to answer. Can’t blame the guests.

    ReplyDelete

    1. No it all boils down sa iniinterview. You can answer a simple answer to a simple question. You must always remember that everytime you answer a question, you must think of your answer. You in yourself knew that A was just told to ask a question, it was never the intention and that is beyond control of the host, the staff if how A would address. That is the main reason why there is a disclaimer before and after the show.

    2. Totoo. Sila na ang reason kung bakit nagkakaissue din. And sila din sumisira ng earnings ng corporation na kinabibilangan nila.

      Delete
    3. 3:07, HIndi naman minor yung guest, ang tagal na niya sa showbiz, kaya dapat marunong na din siyang sumagot.

      Delete
  21. Flop naman ang movie even if CC didnt say anything.

    1. Agree.....walang ng appeal sila B and A anyways

  22. The thing is, audience or consumers can and have the power to boycott a product that doesn't resonates to their belief or values. Yes, more people now do that. Look how the whole world goes. Look carefully what's really happening.

    ReplyDelete
  23. The movie was boring. At wala ng appeal c A at B sa box office at cgro dumagdag na yung issue kaya ayan lugi.

    ReplyDelete
  24. The movie was a flop by itself. Predictable and old story line. Wala na din dating yung girl na bida

    ReplyDelete
  25. It’s not A’s fault. The movie really wasn’t that’s great. I was disappointed kasi it lacked talaga. Honesr reviews circulated socmed too which influences BO numbers. Other promo tactics did not help either. Sorry.

  26. Freedom of speech does not mean freedom from its consequences.

    1. Freedom together with responsibility. A's arrogance got the best of him.

      Delete
    2. Walang chemistry si A & B kaya flop ang movie nila. Saka parang overexposed na rin si B sa movies and social media. Nakakasawa na. A should have at least lost some weight din.

      Delete
  27. lesson for the guests of the show not to touch on sensitive issues

    ReplyDelete
  28. Yes walang dating ang movie. Di kase sila bagay.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Aside from his opinion, ang lamya din nung movie, trailer lang nakaka bore na lol

    ReplyDelete
  30. marami talaga na turn off kay A, totoo yun! tsaka isa pa si leading lady lang ang nagdala ng movie, puro pintas maririnig mo sa mga viewers kasi hindi maganda register ni A sa screen.

    ReplyDelete
  31. sad ito, sayang, maganda naman ang movie kaso lang hindi na appealing ang looks ni A.

    ReplyDelete
  32. kaya pala bigla siyang nanahimik. Bad Move talaga A. sinayang mo.

    1. Arrogant comments straight from the mouth of an aging actor who has lost his appeal and looks. Sana matutong magpakumbaba sa susunod.

  34. The show entails being yourself sa interview... Hindi sya pa tweetums show.

  35. Cguro hindi lng c A ang dahilan dahil din kay B dina cya ganun kAbango sa Masa di tulad dati

  36. see? sabi na sa inyo e floppy ito. 6 lang kami sa sine noon di pa namin tinapos dahil pangit! i think that even the leading lady is palaos na din gaya ng leading man e.
