A new Valentine tradition

Assistant Vice President for Brand Communications, Public Relations and Digital Marketing of Jollibee Foods Arline Adeva said there has been an online clamor for more stories.

"We love the reactions cause it's as if people are looking forward to it," Adeva told CNN Philippines.

She added the use of popular love songs were intentional, as it is a venue to popularize classics.

"It helps tell the story. Of course finding the perfect music will tell your stories," she explained.

With millennials as Jollibee's main market, and drawing from their reactions, Adeva said they get more real-life love stories to base the films on.

"People keep on submitting. We have many stories in our bank," she added.

Adeva added that Jollibee is planning to make the digital shorts annually, making it part of social media's Valentine tradition.
