Donny Pangilinan and Belle Mariano Serve Up Kilig Moments in New Smart Prepaid TVC

Valentine’s Day came early for ‘DonBelle’ fans as Smart Prepaid recently put together the ‘new generation phenomenal love team’ of Donny Pangilinan and Belle Mariano in a swoon-worthy TVC filled with kilig moments.

DonBelle turns up the romance in the 30-second TVC showing simple moments that matter to them the most - like taking silly selfies, letting loose with a TikTok dance, and immersing in a movie - as they enjoy each other’s company.

Moments that truly matter for DonBelle

Asked about the moments that matter most to them, DonBelle couldn’t help but agree with each other.

"My hope is that I am able to go through this year balancing work and staying connected with family and loved ones - not to mention all the extra things I still want to do on the side," said Donny.

"I have to agree with Donny because nothing beats spending quality time with your loved ones. And it doesn't always have to be grand - it can be as simple as having coffee, sharing funny memes, or a call to cap the day, it’s really the thought that makes every moment special," said Belle.

Wishes for 2023

In a recent interview for Star Magic's Inside News, the loveteam eagerly shared their wishes for the year ahead.

"Sana ngayong 2023 ay mas ma-strech pa ako in terms of learning my craft. [I also want to] spend more time with friends and family as well. ... and travel more," Donny said.

"I hope 2023 is full of positivity and happiness not just for me but for everyone else," Belle said.
