today's AMAZING TV AD : honda's "cog" 2 minute tv spot

the inspiration is mount pinatubo when some years ago, all of a sudden, after decades of being dormant, it decided to erupt, spewing debris and ash several kilometers high, blowing ashes to float everywhere, far and wide, turning the skies gloomy gray as far away as metro manila, hundreds of kilometers away, covering metro manila streets and rooftops with thick ash. the pinatubo eruption was so powerful that its ashes changed the color of sunsets not only in the philippines but also worldwide.

that's what happens when clients and advertising agencies decide to run ads not worthy to be called advertising. its dark, its huge and very irritating and unfortunately, everywhere!


all they are doing is wawam! what a waste of advertising money!


here is a first row view of Philippine Advertising and Philippine Marketing.

Ban on tobacco ads, endorsements starts today

By Sheila Crisostomo Tuesday, July 1, 2008

Tobacco advertisements in newspapers and magazines and sponsorships by cigarette and tobacco companies will be banned starting today.

Republic Act 9211, the Tobacco Regulation Act of 2003, has prohibited tobacco ads on television, radio and movie houses since January last year.

The ban on outdoor ads for tobacco has been in effect since July 1, 2007.

The law also prohibits cigarette and tobacco companies from sponsoring any sport, concert, cultural or arts event, as well as individual and team athletes, artists, or performers where such sponsorship shall require or involve the advertisement or promotion of any cigarette or tobacco company, tobacco product or tobacco use, name, logo or trademark and other words, symbols, designs, colors or other depictions commonly associated with or likely to identify a tobacco product.
