When I had a one-on-one interview with David Archuleta at the Close Up Pyromusical last February 11, he mentioned that he had to extend his stay in the country for a week because of more projects.

As it turns out, one of the projects is an endorsement deal with Bench and Bench Fix. Why didn't I see that coming? Come to think of it, David--with his boyish good looks and undeniable charm--is perfect for Bench.

Just look at the photos.

I got to see David again when he was launched by the brand as their newest face, and basing on the reaction of the crowd in Trinoma last February 17, it looks like Bench hit the jackpot with him.

Check out these plus some behind-the-scenes photos. I can't wait to see his in-store photos and billboards.

I will surely miss him while he's busy with his two-year break from the entertainment industry. Good thing his TV5 show Nandito Ako is already on air, and a new all-OPM album will be released very soon.
