AlDub on BBC


AlDub the social media phenomena was featured on an hour-long panel discussion on CNN Philippines tonight, and now here comes AlDub on BBC News. The article is entitled:

'AlDub': A social media phenomenon about love and lip-synching


written by Heather Chen for BBC News. Lip-synching is not used as a derogatory term but just an accurate description for doing a "dubsmash."

The article also acknowledged that AlDub fans are not just the local Filipino fans but also American politicians and even international alternative rock bands, who all have declared their love for the show and its young stars, Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza.

It also mentioned that BBC World news anchor, Rico Hizon, a Filipino based in its Southeast Asia bureau in Singapore, is a big fan of AlDub. I have an inkling that this news article will also be a feature story in BBC World's various newscasts.
