A successful television commercial is characterized by its ability to have the audience remember it for as long as they could. With its less than 30 seconds appearance in television, commercials have to make an impact to the public–that is their main goal. I am sure that you have at least one TV ad in your mind that you will never forget, eve after years pass by.

In the Philippine television scene, there are dozen of commercials that were able to do these. Iconic taglines, funny punchlines, and catchy tunes are just some of the techniques they employ so people will remember the product or service it advertises.
“Ako, ako, puro na lang ako,” are you familiar with this certain line? If you are, then you probably remember the iconic detergent commercial that aired back in 2008. Of course, who would forget the little cute boy who popularized this line? BJ Forbes, or more commonly known as “Tolits”, was quite the famous child star when the commercial was televised.
This was the start of his career in showbiz. He eventually got castes in Kapuso shows such as Etheria: Ikalimang Kaharian ng Encantadia (2005), Fantastikids (2006), and Ful Haus (2007). The last time he was seen on TV is during the Pangako Sa’Yo remake starring Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla.
In our minds, Tolits would always be this little boy in the detergent commercial, it is how he became popular! We may also remember him as a contestant in “That’s My Boy” segment of the noontime show Eat Bulaga. But of course, this adorable child star is now a handsome young lad, and he grew up to be quite a looker.
BJ Forbes is now a 19-year-old college student taking up the course Computer Science in STI. Along with his studies, he continued acting and performing every chance he could get. He performs in various stage musicals and theatre gigs, the latest being Ibong Adarna, with him playing one of the protagonists, Don Juan.
Alongside his penchant for theatre acting, Tolits has also involved himself in public service. He is currently serving as the Sangguniang Kabataan Chairman of his hometown, San Isidro in Angono, Rizal.
