Uber gave me my own Music Video! #YearWithUber


Ever since getting a car, I discovered that I am the type of person who would rather stay at home rather than brave the traffic – because I just cannot stand driving and getting stuck in it! This is one of the many reasons why I chose to live close to my workplace, and stay in a city where I could walk to places safely. However, not all places can be reached by walking, and this is where my adventures with Uber come in.

2017 has been a roller coaster ride, with events left and right! This year, I took 100 Uber rides! Can you imagine? Other things I discovered also was that I rode most frequently in the afternoons, and the farthest I’ve gone on an Uber was 19km! You’re probably wondering where I got these information, right? (Promise I’m not making them up! Haha!) As 2017 comes to a close, Uber made sure to send their riders a special year-end treat – and that is your own personalized music video plus you own Uber Archetype! Here are the seven types! Read and see where you fall under.

1. The Explorer

For you, Uber isn’t just a way to get around your home base — it’s how you traverse the world. You take in the new sights, sounds, and scents of new cities through the best way you know how. As The Explorer, you’ve visited many cities, and you’ve used Uber in each one to get to your destination. Exploring is a breeze for you with an Uber car, whichever part of the globe you find yourself in.

2. The Lux Rider

Getting to your location safely and efficiently is one thing; arriving consistently in style is another. The Lux Rider has a penchant for the finer things in life — including luxury rides.
You’ve constantly relied on Uber Black for your journeys, and you know that a trip is never complete without a premium car to cruise in.

3. The All Star Hero

If there’s somewhere you need to be, who else are you going to call? As the High-Trip Hero, you’ve taken a high number of rides with Uber. No matter what time of the day or situation, rain or shine, you’ve counted on Uber multiple times to get to where you want and need to go. In the busy streets of Manila, Uber has become your go-to for whenever you need a ride.

4. The Road Tripper

For someone fond of road trips, it’s not just the destination that counts, but the journey taken. You’ve truly gone the distance on your journeys with Uber — very long distances, in fact. The Road Tripper has accumulated a very high total distance traveled, so much that they spend majority of their day in an Uber car. We’ve loved having you along for the ride, too.

5. The Night Rider

Darkness is your friend and gives you comfort. As most people are just about to end their day, yours is just getting started. The Night Rider has taken most Uber trips after the sun has set. Whether for your nocturnal adventures or graveyard shifts, we’ve been there to take you through the night.

6. The Early Bird

As soon as the sun peeps on the horizon, we arrive on your doorstep like clockwork. This year, you’ve started most of your days with Uber, taking you where you’re needed for the day. As The Early Bird, you’ve taken most morning trips with Uber, beginning each new day with a reliable ride.

7. The Midday Wanderer

Rush hour? Traffic? These words mean nothing to you, or you are at least unfazed by the metro’s midday bustle. As The Midday Wanderer, most of your Uber trips are taken during the afternoon, as you thrive on the energy of the city at its liveliest.

So, which Uber Archetype am I? I am an All-Star, described as  someone who makes some serious moves. Someone who moves from place to place, finding comfort in the backseat space.
