Up next on the Edsa billboards: Adam Levine


The Maroon 5 rockstar is Bench’s latest endorser

Adam Levine is Bench’s newest endorser. If that news alone doesn’t make your hormones go into overdrive, we don’t know what would.

We can’t really say we didn’t see it coming. With the voice, the looks and the body to match, he’s pretty much the complete package, and it was only a matter of time before an endorsement deal is sealed.

Plus, the timing actually couldn’t have been more perfect; we know he’s coming back with the rest of his merry Maroon 5 band mates for their third Manila show on Tuesday (the tickets for which have long been sold out, by the way).

Nevertheless, when Bench dropped the bomb last Thursday, just hours before its highly touted denim and underwear show, “Bench Universe,” the whole Twitterverse—and our heads—just about exploded.

Many thought he’d do the runway, but Bench was quick to squelch the rumors. However, he will have a public appearance on Monday in a fan meet; details are posted on Bench’s Twitter (@benchtm).

With that, this season’s battle of the brands (and billboards) has officially begun. This rock star will heat up Edsa soon enough, with or without his shirt on. Don’t be shy, we know you’re actually praying for the latter. We are, too.
