A communications graduate from Far Eastern University who went viral in 2018 has been hired to endorse a beverage product.
It can be recalled that ‘Drink Water V. Rivera’ captured the attention of the netizens because of his very unique name.
Rivera admitted in an old interview that many people made fun of him because of his name.
However, he said that he didn’t feel bad that his parents gave him a unique name.
“I want to break the norm and from the usual names na nakasanayan na ng marami sa atin kasi kaya nga tayo nagpapangalan is because we want to be different among the other at magkaroon ng sariling identity.” he said in an interview.
“Enjoy the uniqueness of our names while we can kasi part yan ng ating identity bilang isang tao and don’t mind the people who thinks that we are different because being unique is cool.” he added.
On March 11, 2023, Rivera announced that he’s now one of the endorsers of Gatorade Philippines.
“I may drink water for everything else but when it comes to workouts, I drink Gatorade No Sugar.” Rivera wrote.
Hundreds of netizens congratulated Rivera for being an endorser of the said beverage product.
