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

for more on this, go to this post :; april 14 post.
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.

september 9 apple event - rocking the ipod and ipod touch?

Apple Hints at iPod News

BOSTON (Reuters) — Apple is expected to show off its new iPod music players, and possibly announce price cuts, on Tuesday but may not release a long-awaited update to its MacBook laptop computers until a later date.Apple, which also makes iPhone devices, e-mailed reporters an invitation to a Sept. 9 event titled “Let’s Rock,” which has an image of a man jumping while listening to an iPod, with the words “playing soon.”No further details were available. Creating an allure for its brand has helped drive Apple’s market capitalization above Google’s, despite fears about the weak economy.An analyst at American Technology Research, Shaw Wu, said the iPod line needed to be refreshed and the price of its iPod Touch models needed to be cut because they have a higher starting price than the iPhone, which includes a cellphone and other features not included in the Touch. The Internet-ready iPod Touch starts at $299 in the United States, compared with $199 for the iPhone.
