Watch: Americans React to AlDub Phenomenon (BuzzFeed Funny Video)
BuzzFeed introduced the phenomenal AlDub love team of Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza (aka Yaya Dub) of Eat Bulaga to some Americans. Watch their funny reactions and opinions about the unstoppable couple on the video below. With AlDub now considered as a social phenomenon after breaking Twitter records, even foreigners start to love them.
On the video uploaded this Friday, October 30, Aldub was introduced as a global phenomenon breaking Twitter records. Then, a set of Americans were asked if they have heard about AlDub. They made some wild guesses, but none of them got close. Later, video clips of Alden and Yaya Dub were shown to them, and they find them cute and lovable.
“This show is totally electric. I don’t know what the f*ck is going on, but it’s just like a whirlwind of fun sh*t.” One of the American man said excitedly on the start of the video. Then, they watched the Kalyeserye episode aired July 16, 2015 when Yaya Dub first saw Alden watching her Dubsmash acts on split screen and made her first-ever pabebe wave to him.
One American woman describe Alden as “totally hot,” while another one asked, “What is Pabebe?” and the man beside her said,”It’s acting cute.” Shortly, two American men can’t help but do the famous ‘pabebe wave’ by Maine Mendoza. An American woman tried to imitate the funny face reactions of Yaya Dub, and the man beside her laughed at her.
“We’re watching an unlikely couple go through the early stage of romance. That awkward face of her is like, ‘How do I communicate?’. Should I text? No, wait.’ I’ll send him a Dubsmash. Say goodbye to your ‘Desperate Housewives,’ your ‘Parks and Recreation,’ throw that out. Eat Bulaga is coming to the States,” The same American man said on the latter part.
And because of the extreme success of AlDub after their ‘Sa Tamang Panahon’ event held at the Philippine Arena last October 24 where the hashtag ALDubEBTamangPanahon had 41 million tweets and beat the 35.6 million tweets.of the 2014 hashtag #WorldCup, their tandem also caught the attention of international news such as BBC News and Bloomberg.
