From his TalkTV days to Talentadong Pinoy, Picture! Picture and as part of your regular lunchtime Dabarkads in Eat Bulaga, Ryan Agoncillo has established himself as one the most versatile hosts in the local entertainment industry. The other half of Judy Ann Santos has also proven his acting chops in the TV series and movies he’s been in.
When he’s not in the spotlight, Ryan is also an avid photographer, motorcycle and drifting enthusiast, and an active participant in the Xterra triathlon.
But all those, he says, takes a backseat for the most important role in his life, being a father to daughter Johanna Louis (Yohan) and Juan Luis (Lucho).
“Hosting, that’s my job, yung running, photography, motorsports, those are my hobbies, apart from being a son, apart from being a husband, I am a dad, and that is my most important task,” he told The New Standard after being introduced as the endorser of paracetamol Panadol recently.
“There’s this Facebook community page I came across recently that is called “Dad is a Son’s First Hero and a Daughter’s First Love, and that kind of struck me, so the first thing I think of when I wake up is how I could be a good dad, and my last thought before I go to sleep was how I was as a dad.”
Ryan says it is one of the reasons why he accepted the endorsement as it also serves as sort of an advocacy for him to encourage parents not to let headache and pain get in the way of those “super moments.”
“Yung headache, wala yata akong matandaang araw mula nung college ako na hindi ako nagkaroon ng sakit ng ulo. Sometimes it’s because of my eye problem, minsan it’s the heat, or stress, ang dami! Kahit yung mga ilaw sa studio, kalaban ko, e,” he admitted. “Pero the show must go on. No excuses.”
It is the same principle he practices as a dad. “Yung mga anak natin, ang pinakamahalagang masi-share natin sa kanila yung oras natin. So no matter how tired you are, no matter how puyat you are, hindi naman nila alam puyat ka. Kapag tinalunan ka sa kama niyan at ginising ka, bangon ka, dapat makipaglaro ka.”
“Pag uuwi, you had a bad day at work, hindi naman nila alam yun, pero pag niyaya ka nilang makipaghabulan o play tag, you gotta be there as a parent. Hindi puwedeng half-baked yung pakikipaglaro mo sa anak mo. They wait for you to come home the entire day, so I don’t wanna fail them in that, even if its just half an hour or even 15 minutes, as long as you spend those quality and super moments with them.”
Ryan and Lucho also star in the new Panadol TV commercial, which shows them having fun and playing superheroes.
Ryan says the commercial is very much like their everyday bonding moments at home. “I’d like to spend as much time with Lucho, carrying him and all that as long as I can because they grow up so fast.”
Fast is also one thing he liked about his endorsement Panadol, because it’s “five times faster” in relieving pains.
“So wala nang problema if masakit ulo mo o masakit katawan mo. Gusto kong lumakas…Gusto kong buhatin si Lucho hanggang kaya, maging game ako sa habulan, superhero, lipad-lipad, ganun sa commercial namin. Kasi, you know, konti na lang baka hindi ko na mabuhat. Kaya I don’t want down time just because of headaches or body pain.
“Fortunately, there’s Panadol. It offers fast relief to make my super moments with my family pain-free! Indeed, when pain is gone, life takes its place,” Ryan shared.
Five times faster
This year, GSK furthers its commitment to improving the quality of human life by enabling people to do more, feel better and live longer with (paracetamol) Panadol. As the world’s trusted pain reliever, sold in more than 85 countries Panadol focuses on helping take away the pain for faster recovery and more super moments with the ones you love.
“Like Ryan, 7 out of 10 Filipinos suffer from regular headaches, the time wasted on dealing with this kind of pain should have been better spent on more important things like quality time with the family,” says Jeoffrey Yulo, general manager – Consumer Healthcare, of GSK Philippines. “This dilemma encourages GSK to continue providing a fast and effective solution like Panadol to pain sufferers.
Panadol with Optizorb is a type of paracetamol caplet that works five times faster than regular formulation. It contains the same amount of paracetamol (500 mg) found in Panadol, so you can feel confident in its ability to relieve pain such as headache and fever.
What makes Panadol with Optizorb® truly different from other branded and generic paracetamol products is that it is the only product to contain Optizorb®, which has revolutionized the way paracetamol tablets are dispersed in the body, so it allows paracetamol to reach the bloodstream more quickly and be carried to where it acts to fight pain, five times faster,” Yulo explained.
(Paracetamol) Panadol® with Optizorb® comes in 36 x 10s dispenser box and a 10s pack. Each tablet has an SRP of PHP 4.00 and is available at all leading drugstores nationwide.
