LEGS OR BREAST: It took married life for Vic Sotto to discover a hot chicken dish that led to a hefty endorsement.
The veteran comedian thanked his wife, Pauleen Luna, who introduced him to Chooks to Go.
“She came home one day with packs of cooked chicken that I found so delicious,” Vic recalled. Vic is quite picky with his chicken, preferring only either legs or breast.
Word got around until it reached Bounty Fresh president Ronald Macarinas, who promptly offered Vic a contract.
Chooks to Go markets itself as an “ulam fix,” a favorite take-home food among busy housewives.
Aside from Vic, star of forthcoming comedy film “Enteng Kabisote 7,” comedian and renowned public speaker Michael Angelo also represents Chooks to Go.
