Better late than never! 💛 @brandonthetruthvera missed the #BuybustMovie screening in the #Cinemalaya opening ceremonies because he had three #buybust interviews among other things nung araw na yun. . . Sinabi kong super lakas ng cheer at sighs ng audience sa anting-anting at fight scenes niya pati sa scenes ni kuya @alexcalleja1007 😂 . . Asked him if I could get a video of him thanking our loudest and biggest audience (1,800 ang seating capacity ng CCP Main Theater, may mga pinauwi pa dahil wala ng tickets). Unang una, ayaw niya gumawa ng video greetings. Ikalawa, ayaw niya mag-isa. Tabihan ko daw siya, he will do all the talking. Pa-cute lang daw ako. 😂 Im one masunurin #veraclan. . . Last 5 days na namin sa mga sinehan! Ay. Wag kang pahuhuli. Catch Buybust sa big screen!!! 💥💣#Verafied #heavyweight #OneChampionship
