McDonald’s Taiwan celebrates new year with cosplay waitresses

McDonald’s staff in Taiwan will be serving their customers in cosplay costumes on New Year’s Eve. The fast food company has introduced the concept at one of its popular branches in Taipei to kick off the buzz…

The featured employees in this preview are obviously selected ones. It will probably be a fun event and I hope the staff enjoy the special occasion as much as the patrons. Just don’t expect eye-candies in all the outlets.

Crayon Pop – Lonely Christmas music video

Korean music video for Lonely Christmas by Crayon Pop, a girl group which got their breakthrough with Bar Bar Bar a few months ago. The song is a “continuation” of their wacky concept. Merry Christmas.

Victoria’s Secret Angels Deck the Halls

American premium lingerie brand Victoria’s Secrets has summoned its Angels to wish everyone a Merry Christmas by performing a classic carol. Visually pleasing, but as one of the ladies said… it’s not fair to make a model sings.

Featured in this video are Candice Swanepoel, Miranda Kerr, Doutzen Kroes, Alessandra Ambrosio, Lily Aldridge, Lindsay Ellingson and Erin Heatherton.

Victoria’s Secret Angels

Victoria’s Secret Angels are the brand’s contract models. The company introduced the idea in a commercial in 1997, which featured Helena Christensen, Karen Mulder, Daniela Pestova, Stephanie Seymour and Tyra Banks.

The commercial was a huge success, and the Angels began featuring in various advertisements and the brand’s annual fashion show.

There are dozens of Angels past and present. Notable ones (not mentioned above) include Gisele Bündchen, Adriana Lima, Heidi Klum and Behati Prinsloo etc.

Not all models who have worked with the brand (catwalks, photo shoots etc.) are classified as Angels though. For example Isabeli Fontana and Angela Lindvall who had walked the Victoria’s Secret fashion show numerous times.

Coca Cola Christmas OFW Project

Soft drink maker Coca-Cola has initiated an Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) project this Christmas to bring home some Filipinos who have worked abroad for a very long time.

While it’s commendable to live alone on foreign soil for the sake of making a better living for family, I can’t understand how people could survive the world’s most expensive cities and yet couldn’t afford to visit their family back home for once in years. Set aside special cases, most are having the wrong priorities IMO.

Brilliant marketing by Coke regardless, and it brings warmth to these folks. Merry Christmas.
