As with the equally iconic Seiko Wallet ads, the commercial for Sunny Orange has been frequently discussed in Filipino internet circles since the 2000s, especially on the PinoyExchange forums. GMA News TV (now GTV)'s show Ang Pinaka mentioned these in their "Classic Commercial Jingles" in their episode. They were also unable to obtain a copy of the commercial.
