Commentary from @bass on r/gaysian:

A
new ad in the Philippines is getting a lot of buzz for what is
considered an unusual and brave move for a major telco brand in a
conservative and mostly Catholic country.

The 1-minute video tells the story of a man named Kevin receiving a
friend request on Facebook from his father. A request he is reluctant to
accept because his account is filled with photos of him and his
boyfriend. During a family lunch, the father reminds him, “Kevin, bakit
hindi mo pa inaaccept ang friend request ko?” [Kevin, why haven’t you accepted my friend request?]

After much deliberation and worry while browsing his Facebook
account, he finally sends a message saying: “Dad, inaccept na kita.” [Dad, accepted you.]

His father’s reply: “Anak ako din.” [Son, so have I.]
