These past few weeks have shown how AlDub matured from a simple segment on a noontime show to a record breaking online phenomenon. We can?t begin to imagine how huge an influence the power couple has over the Filipino audiences (as well as international), but we do know how it all started. For those who weren?t able to follow the AlDub sensation since they started, we take a look at some of the groundbreaking viral hashtags that broke records and stunned social media.
Of course we can?t forget the hashtag where it all started. The tandem of Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza a.k.a. Yaya Dub that the noontime show ?Eat Bulaga? created blew the competition away and nobody had a clue that their 30-minute segment of the couple could become one of the most watched segments in the country.
This particular hashtag may have brought social media stumbling because this was the tipping point of AlDub becoming famous across the Philippines and some parts of the world. The hashtag #ALDUBAgainstAllOdds was created particularly because of Yaya Dub forcing to marry a guy named Frankie but was called off because a fake priest officiated the ceremony. The hashtag #ALDUBAgainstAllOdds garnered more than two million tweets that created a record breaking moment for a noontime show.
Alden Richards and Yaya Dub officially met for the first time after their performances at the noontime show ?Eat Bulaga.? The hashtag #ALDUBBattleForACause was created and was tweeted more than five million times and made another record breaking share.
The power couple then met for the second time only to be blindfolded and hands tied together. This was particularly special for the fans because it was the first time they got close to each other almost to the point of embracing.? AlDub nation didn?t stop for five million; they took to social media again with the hashtag #ALDUBTheAbduction and tweeted more than six million times, breaking the record once again.
And just last weekend, the hashtag #ALDUBTheMostAwaitedDate became the biggest viral hashtag with more than 12 million tweets particularly because Alden Richards and Yaya Dub officially had a date for the first time. The AlDub nation stunned Twitter with their sole dedication to share the hashtag on social media every chance they could.
So judging by the look of the number of tweets steadily increasing with each hashtags, it?s safe to say that AlDub may reach another record breaking moment. We just might be able to see those 15 million shares.
So what?s the hashtag for tomorrow? Check this space regularly for updates!
