A good lesson learned at the FHM autograph signing event held Friday night: Never underestimate the power of just a person’s name, especially if it’s Ellen Adarna’s.
The perimeters of Robinsons Movieworld weren’t merely enough to contain an extended line of devotees eager to have a meet-and-greet with our December cover babe.
Best we can say for the poor dude waiting last in line was “hang in there.”
And it's all due to one name: Ellen. Magazine racks exclusively selling our December issue were swarmed with urgency, with only a magazine or two left by the time lovely Ellen arrived for her signing session.
Ellen made good use of her celebrity status, somehow finding time out of her precious schedule to accommodate a good hundred admirers who, along with their signed magazines, longed for a photo-op with the fresh-faced beauty.
Having signed copies for more than two hours with only a water break to spare, Ellen sure had a handful that night. Nonetheless, a small price to pay for a good number of fake Ellen photos online about to be replaced by real ones from now on. It's a win-win situation.
After Friday night's events, we can all agree that Ellen Adarna is an internet sensation no more, but a true blue celebrity taking flight right before our eyes.
