John Lloyd Cruz returns to limelight as Turks ambassador

In 2017, matinee idol John Lloyd Cruz took a break from acting to focus on his personal life. Dubbed as one of the most bankable actors in Philippine cinema, his fan base still looks forward to his return.

In a teaser video posted in Turks Facebook page  a few weeks ago, speculations about his comeback circulated in social media.  While the teaser only lasted  for a few seconds and only shows the back shot of John Lloyd,  it had been viewed 3.2M times, and shared almost 800 times coupled with a huge number of comments.

Without any clue to the identity of the actor  in the said teaser, his fans already assumed that it was him in the video. Actress Bea Alonzo on her Instagram also posted a screenshot of the same intriguing video, which garnered almost a million likes.

It was only this  Monday morning did  Turks finally reveal  in a 1-minute and 17 seconds video that it was indeed John Lloyd Cruz!  The actor was  shown walking through different destinations, which somehow depicts Cruz’s sojourn.

The video is very simple, yet dramatic in the way it was created----- in a very subtle shot, he stopped and took a bite of a Turks pita donner.

The rugged look of Cruz in the Turks video dubbed as Ang Pagbabalik is way too far from his guy- next-door image and a lot of people in the industry are asking if this signals his return to the limelight. His fans are still wondering about the life he’s been living since his hiatus.


According to Turks president Gem L. Zenarosa that during the course of his talks with Cruz, they never talked anything about his showbiz career or plans. John Lloyd Cruz was chosen as the latest ambassador of Turks because of his great confidence working with the actor.  John Lloyd Cruz  joins the roster of endorsers of Turks which include as Piolo and Inigo Pascual.

“I am really grateful that John Lloyd trusts our company, he is a brilliant and very creative young man. Aside from acting we have discovered some of his remarkable talents,” Zenarosa stressed. Ang Pagbabalik  is actually about Turks Small Pita Doner, which will be available again in all its branches.

“John Lloyd is the best endorser for this because like him, despite his absence in the showbusiness for a couple of years, the warmth and love of his fans for him never dwindles. With our Small Pita Doner we believe that our customers will be happy to know that it is back in our menu,” Zenarosa explained.

Just like Cruz who sports  a different image since he last appeared on the big screen (an indication that the actor is recreating and reinventing himslef), so does Turks.   The number one shawarma brand is continuously innovating to keep its customers excited whenever they visit a branch.

"To keep up with the demands of our customers, Turks continues to improve our menu and offerings to satisfy the discriminating taste of our loyal patrons," Zenarosa stressed.

And along with the release of Cruz's endorsement video, Turks also unveiled  its newest offering ---  Turks Rice Bowl, which is a complete meal.

For only P 50,  you can choose between  beef and chicken for your rice topping., The Small Pita Donner on the other hand, is priced at P 35.
