This best argument about Sharon Cuneta choosing Kiko Pangilinan will make you believe in love

By now, you may have already seen or heard the latest marketing stunt in the Philippines by a large fast-food chain, wherein they featured Megastar Sharon Cuneta “reminiscing” the good times with former husband and overall 80s heartthrob Gabby Concepcion.

Yup, they still look great. Also, nakakakilig nga.

The video drew cheers from long time (and even new) fans of this 80s love team, with people commenting how none of today’s so-called love teams can rival that of the longevity and fame Sharon and Gabby had in their hay days.

It was expected that people would be digging up the real story behind Sharon and Gabby: about why it didn’t work out for the couple, who else became linked to Shawie, and why the Megastar ended up with Kiko Pangilinan. It even created a much-hyped thread on Facebook where people just went all out with speculations and opinions, with the surprising twist that Sharon Cuneta was answering some of the questions herself, posing as April Mondragon.

Thanks to the McDo Gabby Sharon ad, I am now obsessively researching about Sharon's past loves LOL. I was too young to…

Of course, being the swamp that the internet is, some ruthless comments about Kiko Pangilinan being a poor choice for Shawie began to emerge:

Lord Jesus Christ. ‘Tis the season of judgment.

However, on February 11, Twitter user Jays (@jaesoon) mic-dropped all the Kiko-Shawie naysayers with a well thought-out argument that, when dissected carefully, actually made so much sense: Kiko Pangilinan IS Sharon Cuneta’s home.

Jays went on to enumerate every single thing that was exceptional about Kiko Pangilinan in a now viral Twitter thread:

His Twitter thread has since generated 36,000 likes and 8,000 retweets. More importantly, it’s making us believe in the idea that there’s a true love for each and every one of us.

So there. Now achieve to be someone’s Kiko in a world full of Robins and Gabbys.
