MANILA, Philippines – The ALDUB Fever rages on and has infected people from all walks of life, affecting various significant things in their lives – more than words can say. What’s incredible about this fever is that it doesn’t ravage its hosts but revives them instead.
For those who are not aware yet of what the ALDUB fever is, there’s no need to panic. The ALDUB fever is not an illness but a cure for almost everything; it can actually help you heal and recuperate.
The ALDB fever is a term used for the phenomenal rise to popularity and stardom of two individuals, who were accidentally caught by the boob tubes lenses; Actor Alden Richards and Maine, “Yaya Dub” Mendoza. ALDUB stands for AL(den) and (Yaya)DUB.
The inception of their love team on Eat Bulaga’s Kalye Serye was accidental; Alden was hosting at the TV studio, while Yaya Dub was part of the group in the “Kalye” (street). They were introduced to each other via a split TV screen, and that’s when the ALDUB fever began.
Within a span of just two months, the ALDUB fever has taken the nation by storm, and has spread rapidly to distant shores all around the world.
Office workers, jeepney drivers, students and almost everyone are focused on their TV screens when the ALDUB episode comes alive on the Eat Bulaga noon time show. Some people compare the scenario to a Manny Pacquiao fight, where the streets are empty because everybody is glued to their TV sets.
The most thrilling scenario that fans look forward to is the face-to-face meeting of the 2 protagonists – although, they have seen each other from a distance and have touched each other with their blindfolds on; they have yet to truly converse and interact with each other up close.
Another phenomenal thing about ALDUB is the fact that its hashtags have trended daily nationwide and worldwide.
ALDUB broke several PH Twitter records. This caught the attention of international celebrities such as, singer, Bryan White (singer of “God Have Me You” and Actress Barbie Xu of another phenomenon, the TV series “Meteor Garden.”
And still the ALDUB fever continues to infect more people around the world. Now, everyone is doing the “pabebe wave” – a hand wave identified with Alden Richards and Yaya Dub.
