Life can be overwhelming, we need every bit of fun we can get. PUREGOLD Channel proves that laughter is indeed the best medicine with the landslide success of GVBoys – its first ever digital series. Its “shoppertainment” concept, which combines shopping and entertainment, brings fun and happiness to Filipino households in these challenging times.
“GVBOYS: Pangmalakasang Good Vibes” is Puregold Channel’s first digital series with eight episodes and two specials. True to its title, the series is filled with good vibes and Puregold Channel subscribers and followers have enjoyed the first two episodes so much that the combined views on the Facebook page and YouTube channel have already surpassed 900,000!
Puregold Channel is conceptualized by Puregold Price Club Inc. to provide the public a free source of entertainment that they could all enjoy in the privacy and safety of their homes in the midst of the on-going global health crisis.
GVBoys revolves around the adventures of misadventures of Jawo (Ponce), Zeus (Bornea), and Dax (Natividad) in the hopes of raising money to redeem their boarding house owned by Aling Pearly (Martin) from a debt incurred from an old frenemie Loisa (Doesn’t).
“GVBOYS: Pangmalakasang Good Vibes” was inspired by 1990s sitcoms, like Palibhasa Lalake and Chika Chika Chicks. But beyond the inspiration from 1990s sitcoms, “GVBOYS: Pangmalakasang Good Vibes” has its own identity and brand of fun.
On YouTube, I Love Tansyong-TV commented that “We need contents like this…ito ang magiging gamot sa depresyon ng bayan;” Ur In My Zone raved “Freaking! Hilarious! Looking forward for this series…#PuregoldChannel that you for making #GVBoys possible;” and Win Manuel gushed “Love this show. Love the cast they’re so funny” to mention just a few of the thousands and thousands of affirmative comments from netizens not just from the Philippines but from all over the world as well.
“We are very grateful and humbled to the public for their solid support and the wonderful reception they gave to this show. We really worked hard to give everyone the much needed joy and laughter that are necessary during these uncertain times and I thank Puregold Channel for its trust and unwavering support,” says director Don Cuaresma.
“The entire cast and crew are all pumped up to work even better in delivering the craziest quality entertainment that everybody could enjoy. The consistent encouragement of viewers is truly overwhelming,” says Jerome Ponce.
In Episode 1, which aired on July 10, we were introduced to Jawo (Ponce) and Daks (Natividad) who are boarders in the house of Aling Pearly with Kathryn B (Elsa Droga) playing Aling Pearly’s half-sister.
We also meet Zeus, Aling Pearly’s godson from America, who also stays in the boarding house. But all isn’t well as they discover that Aling Pearly is indebted to Loisa Soberano (played by Wilma Doesnt). With the boarding house as collateral, Loisa wants her money or the house.
In the second episode, which aired on July 17, Jawo, Daks and Zeus vow to help Aling Pearly in whatever way they can. With Kathryn’s help, Jawo gets a job as a movie extra, Dax finds a job online but is apparently led somewhere unsavory, and Zeus tries to sell his stuff online.
They also find out that Zeus’ parents have hired a House Angel named Avana to help him with house chores. When she arrives, Jawo and Daks become infatuated with her.
Meanwhile, Loisa continues to hound Aling Pearly for payment and the boys plot to make her fall in love with one of them.
In the end, it is Jawo who goes on a date with Loisa and seemingly falls in love with her.
Directed by veteran film and top-rating television director Don Cuaresma with a script written by Sherwin Buenvenida and Joaquin Acosta, GVBoys is the wackiest, laugh-a-minute online comedy series today.
On the highly-anticipated third episode streaming on July 24 (Saturday, 7:00 p.m.), the outrageous and mischievous escapades of GVBoys’ motley crew continues as fans surely can look forward to more zany antics from the show’s beloved characters – Jawo shoots a TV commercial as he begins a budding romance with Loisa; Dax courts house angel Avana (Abi Kassem); Zeus does a fixer-upper in house; Aling Pearly fights back as Loisa continues to terrorize her; and Kathryn B is forced to pretend to be straight.
