MANILA, Ph — From catchy campaign slogans to snazzy jingles, the Vote M&M’S® 2016 Campaign heated up at the exciting Miting de Avance, held at the Makati Coliseum last April 22, 2016.
Guests cheered the arrival of Red, Yellow and Green as they made their grand entrance from the M&M’S® Motorcade and the three M&M’S® Characters went on to wow the crowd as they danced, debated and posed with fans.
The event was a fun way to get to know the three M&M’S® candydates vying to win the M&M’S® Character of the Year Award. At the Q&A, the three characters revealed their fun personalities as they answered all-important questions like Why should I vote for you? and showcased their talent at a dance-off supported by their respective cheer squad.
Guests were also able to play games like the ring toss, swim in the ball pit and win colorful M&M’S® merchandise. Of course, they all stopped by the ballot box to support their candydate and took home souvenir photos decked in the paraphernalia of their favorite M&M’S® character.
“Last year, the M&M’S® Characters had a fantastic time visiting the Philippines’ most popular tourist sites. Red, Yellow and Green loved it here so much that they couldn’t resist coming back and bringing their own brand of spontaneous fun to the elections,” said Henry Azcarraga, Mars Chocolate, Philippines Country Director.
Fans of the M&M’S® characters can still join the Vote M&M’S® 2016 campaign and get the chance to win a P5,000 in cash or M&M’S® merchandise at the weekly raffle. Will you vote Matapang and Magaling Red? A powerful and a fearless leader, Red is the candydate who will see you through tough times.
