A cup in hand

A cup in hand“, is a famous line from a TV commercial of a particular coffee brand. I’m writing this because I’m hooked on their jingles. They were all using the same melody and lyrics, “One moment, one Nescafe”, and yet they were able to express different sounds and moods.

These are my favorites (listed In no particular order):

Let’s sit, let’s talk, one moment, one Nescafe

Summer Reggae – 30 sec (Cut from 40 sec to 30)

A cup in hand, will you just stay for a while

Let’s sit, let’s talk, one moment, one Nescafe

Ilang shot lang, di ka na blangko
Ilang shot lang, utak ay listo
Sunod sa ikot ng mundo, sa Nescafe ako ay listo
Tuloy-tuloy ang usap, sa Nescafe listo ang utak
Sunod ka, sa ikot ng mundo yo
One moment, one Nescafe
