MANILA — Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla, along with SB19, were spotted Thursday on a digital billboard in Times Square, New York.

The screen and music superstars were featured on the massive LED screen, alongside YouTube sensation Mimiyuuuh and basketball player Ricci Rivero, as part of an ad campaign of Pepsi.

“I wish I’m in Times Square right now!” she wrote on Instagram. “At magsisisigaw ako ng, ‘Anak ko ‘yan! Anak ko ‘yan!’ Congratulations KathNiel and the entire team!”
