In 1989, the Fénix company launched a commercial to promote the mythical Chomp cookie, which exists to this day, and for this it summoned several infants. Some of them were Milene Vásquez, who was the main of the video clip and wore an outfit with a Spanish theme.
He also took the opportunity to reveal details of the commercially remembered, such as the fact that she was not the one who tapped, but a double: “I put my face.” Milene decided to follow the path of acting and has been part of several Peruvian productions such as Milagros, Qué Buena Raza, Eva del Edén and Red Pulseras. Likewise, he was also part of projects for the big screen such as in the movie General Cemetery 2 and will now be part of the cast of the web series Voices that will premiere in 2022.
“Time to love” – Pepsi
The Pepsi company had a golden age in the late 80s and early 90s, when it produced various commercials that remained in the hearts of Peruvians because of the stories it told. One of them took place in 1987 with the protagonists Rafael Plaza and Erika Stockholm.
The commercial has the musical background of the song “Tiempo de amar” by the Peruvian pop rock band We all together, inspired by The Beatles. The video clip shows a teenage couple and how their love evolves but always in each shot with a Pepsi soda in their hands.
Over the years, the actress Erika Stockholm, who was part of the soap opera Carmín, moved away from the small screen, but continues to be linked to art. She is a writer and has managed to take her stories to the tables. One of his last stories was “María Julia and the chicken tree”, and even today, November 27, he will perform a children’s show for the Bicentennial Book Fair at the Chabuca Auditorium in Kennedy Park.
In short, one of the funniest commercials that is remembered to this day was the one starring the actor
Oscar Pacheco in 1999. He played a clueless vigilante who comes across a foreign woman and begins to speak passionately to her.
The young man does not understand anything the tourist says to him until he hears a word that relates him to one of the streets of Cercado de Lima. “Ah ya, Jiron Yungay. Walk six blocks and turn right ”, the actor is heard saying in response to the young American’s romantic statement, which he did not understand because he spoke in English.
The purpose of this commercial was to invite the public in an ingenious way to buy the English dictionary from Diario Ojo. This propaganda transcended time and therefore, in 2018, the actor Pacheco again played the same character of guachimán, but this time for the Entel company and with another ending, where he understands the message and ends up dating the girl.
Now, the actor Óscar Pacheco continues to be linked to the scenic world by having his company called “Todoloteatral”, and he is also the father of a girl.
“Being ‘Yungay’ changed my life. (…) I am willing to continue with the character, since I really love him “he said for an interview. The umbrella for Claro Peru
This commercial was a hit in the summer of 2008 in Peru. The Claro company created a hilarious commercial entitled “El tema del verano”, with a catchy single that made everyone dance. This clip also served to launch model Vanessa Tello to fame, who mentioned in an interview with El Comercio in 2011 that “she didn’t think she was going to cause such a sensation.”
In the video you can see dozens of bathers enjoying a day at the beach and several women running through the sand with the classic red bikini. “This is the theme of the summer, the one that you are going to sing and dance everywhere. It talks about the sun, the sand and the waves, and it has a chorus that sticks to you, sticks to you and never takes off ”, was part of the lyrics of the musical theme.
Tongo and his commercial for Telefónica
The funny José Abelardo Gutiérrez Alanya, better known as Tongo, participated in a commercial for Telefónica in 2008. The hilarious singer sang verses from his well-known song “La pituca” within the video clip, where he invited the public to use the public telephones of the company.
However, that was not his only participation as an image of Telefónica, since in total he appeared in seven commercials for the Spanish company. Two years later, the Claro company pulled the cumbia singer to turn him into its image when they saw the pull he had. Currently, he is still linked to music, but maintains a fragile state of health, being recently hospitalized for complications due to diabetes, a chronic disease that he has suffered for years.
