Almost three decades after we last saw them, it seems like Sharon-Gabby is still a ship worth fighting for.
In an interview with select members of the press after the "Unexpectedly Yours" Thanksgiving Lunch last February 20, Sharon Cuneta spoke about reuniting with her once-leading man and ex-hubby Gabby Concepcion for a TV commercial for a fast food chain which has since gone viral.
According to the legendary actress, any initial awkwardness between them was squashed when cameras started rolling.
She revealed, "The minute na dumating kami sa set, tapos in-explain sa amin ni Direk [kung ano 'yung gagawin]...parang kahapon lang kami galing shooting, bumalik agad. Sharon-Gabby kami agad. [We said], 'Let's do this. As usual, what we've been doing it forever.'"
"Tapos mamaya kwentuhan na kami, very light, about KC (Concepcion), kinukuwento ko 'yung mga anak ko. Very nice naman...'yun lang, very easy."

According to Mega, she didn't expect such an overwhelmingly positive response to the commercial, especially from the younger generation.
She explained, "I wasn't sure. I knew it was going to be something special, mainly because ever since naman, halos lahat ng gawin namin ni Gabby together was always something special, including KC. But I wasn't sure this time around kasi it's been 26 years, we're older, the young ones don't really know us."
"So it was shocking," she continued, "it was overwhelming, it was so shocking! Marvelous, wonderful kind of shock. Iiyak ako, tatawa, kasi ang daming nagko-congratulate, tapos papanoorin mo, maiiyak ka sa tuwa, sa nostalgia, sa saya kasi mahal pa pala kami ng tao."
Following the success of the commercial, fans of the Sharon-Gabby tandem have openly expressed their desire for a reunion movie. Let's hope it happens! <3
