American website Morning News USA featured the phenomenal “AlDub” love team of Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza in an article titled “Do You See #ALDUB A Lot On Twitter Lately? We Have The Answer.”
The article gives light to why AlDub is trending on Twitter worldwide almost everyday and compared the chemistry of Alden and Maine to that of Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone in the Hollywood movie “Crazy, Stupid, Love.”
The hashtag #ALDUB, which people all over the world are seeing over and over again as the top trending topic on Twitter, pertains to a Filipino onscreen couple, reel lovers, Maine Mendoza and Alden Richards. The two are now considered a power couple that has achieved a global phenomenon.
The hashtag was born out of combining Richards’ first name Alden and Mendoza’s screen name, Yaya Dub, which she used in Philippine noontime show “Eat Bulaga.” Their onscreen chemistry can be compared to that of Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling in “Crazy, Stupid, Love.” Except that Mendoza and Richards are yet to have a movie. What they have is a mini-TV series shown everyday during lunch hour in the Philippines.
The article took notice on how AlDub bested the tweets about the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards in September. It was the time when the hashtag #AlDubEBforLove garnered 25.6 million tweets which almost broke the record of Superbowl XLIX earlier this year.
