Nope, It's Not CGI. That's Really The Jackie Chan in Shopee Philippines' Latest Ad
“Jackie Chan” is currently trending on Twitter, to the initial panic of his Filipino fans. But don’t worry, you won’t find any condolence posts dedicated to the 67-year-old martial artist. Just Jackie Chan saying “Bili na sa Shopee.”
Is it CGI? Is it AI? Is it a voicover? Nope, Shopee Philippines really got Jackie Chan, one of the world’s most recognizable entertainers, to sing and dance to the Shopee jingle. The popular ecommerce platform launched its 9.9 campaign video on Thursday to the general bafflement of the Internet. Lest we forget, Jackie Chan is one of the biggest action stars of all time. We’re talking Tom Cruise big—and Tom Cruise expensive.
Shopee Philippines is known for bringing in A-list celebrities to join their brand ambassador lineup—A-listers in the Philippines, that is. But this time, they definitely leveled up and jumped all the way to the top by signing Jackie Chan, an international icon and legend, to join their brand.
The 30-seconder isn’t long enough to get over your initial WTF reaction, but by the second or third watch, you’ll be jiving alongside Jackie Chan as he—surreally—sings and dances the popular Filipino jingle. He even throws in some Tagalog in the end.
But no matter how many times you watch it, you'll probably be like us and still check your phone for shipping updates whenever the Shopee notification sound pings on screen.
Shopee Philippines’ 9.9 event is just a few weeks away, so enjoy free shipping and P1 deals while you can.
