It's the collab we never knew we needed! Our best queen Pia Wurtzbach and our favorite band Ben&Ben have teamed up for an epic video which made our hearts sing and got us flipping our hair!
This was a total fangirl moment for Queen P who became an instant fan of Ben&Ben after discovering one of the MYX chart-topping group's songs in 2019. She was visibly excited to finally talk to her OPM idols and fellow Cream Silk ambassadors in their virtual meetup.
Ben&Ben's frontmen Paolo and Miguel - known for their heartfelt anthems and signature long hair - were equally starstruck with Pia. The two still couldn't believe that they now belonged to the Cream Silk family alongside the popular beauty queen.
Of course, Pia just had to put the Ben&Ben members' hair flip skills to the test during the fun tutorial session - and they definitely nailed it! The former Miss Universe also shared some tips on how to confidently strut on the catwalk and properly deliver the Cream Silk taglines which they all aced as well.
As a reward for teaching Ben&Ben how to be perfect Cream Silk endorsers, the 9-piece band serenaded Queen P with the #CreamSilkArawAraw song which gave her (and us) goosebumps! As if that kilig moment wasn't enough, Pia even got to live out her secret dream of becoming a singer. She performed her own beautiful rendition of the song, using the Cream Silk bottle as her microphone.
