MANILA, Philippines -  How do you get “good luck” this year? They say, you don’t wait for it, you make it happen. Surround yourself with family and friends, spread good vibes and share a hearty meal with people you love spending time with.

This is what father and son Edu and Luis Manzano plan to do more this 2018. Luis has been part of the Shakey’s family since last year and has been joined by his dad. Aside from being accomplished TV hosts, both are also known for their playful nature, widely followed on social media for their funny videos and witty posts.

They also personify fun when they appear in the newest advertisement. Edu is dressed in polka dots from head-to-toe to supposedly bring in “good luck,” but Luis counters this popular belief and shows his dad how to get lucky this new year by taking advantage of the Shakey’s 2018 Meal Deal promo.

Shakey’s president and CEO Vicente Gregorio is enthusiastic about the new tandem endorsing the brand. “Edu and Luis embody the brand in every way, which is why we are excited to welcome them into the Shakey’s family this 2018. Guests will be lucky with this meal deal, since Shakey’s is centered on exceeding its expectations. Each year, it has become a tradition for Shakey’s to offer something more fun and family-friendly with its meal deals, and this year is no different as we present the 2018 Meal Deal,” he said.

You can also get a free SuperCard. Experience the full #Lucky2018 by Shakey’s with the meal deal for only P2,018.

“Since way back, Shakey’s has always been a staple whenever there are family get-togethers and whatnot. I’m really glad and honored to be a part of the Shakey’s family,” shared Edu.

For Luis, it is a win-win situation. “I am a big fan of the brand. I tweet about it and constantly order pizza when I’m home or at work. Aside from that, I get to work with my dad, which makes it a lot more special.”

Meanwhile, Luis and Edu shared their dream project outside doing endorsements together.

Luis said, “My dream project with my dad ay pagsabayin kami bilang Captain Barbell. Two of us will be playing Captain Barbell.”

Edu played the superhero character in the 1986 Captain Barbell film.

“I’ll be the one in the past, he’ll be in the future, then there will be a crossover. That’s really my dream project, that we will be together in a film,” added Luis.

Edu, on the other hand, said, “No. I’ll be the present one, and you’ll be the future. But seriously, we should have one (showbiz) project together, even if it’s a small one. Hopefully, a talk show. We were so close to having one. We sat down with management. However, the problem is, with two of us in the show, hindi makakapagsalita ang mga guest.”
