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.

WAWAM! a fan of another blog, Pinoy Advertising Tsismax - not true but we are flattered

Pinoy Advertising Tsismax, a blog on philippine advertising, actually as the blog name says, it is a blog for tsimis or rumors on the philippine advertising industry. in one of the posts there, it mentioned that WAWAM! is a "fan" of the blog:

we do not know what the point is of that post nor what that blog is trying to do, but WAWAM! is certainly not a fan of that blog, contrary to what the post claims.

we had posted in that blog a few times, sometime in july 2008 but only on one topic, that was when we picked up a story on the DM9 Jayme/Sayfu plagiarism of an ad that won them an international award. (read here: that was the first and only time we posted there and certainly also the first and last time we read anything in that blog.

we do not think reading and posting in that blog once in two years that this blog has been in existence constitutes being a "fan" of that blog. we categorically deny that we are a fan of the blog.

we ran into that blog today as we googled "wawam". we wanted a quick check on the name and wanted to find out if the wawam blog is being mentioned in other parts of the internet (also for copyright infringement checks). so today was only the second time ever that we went to that blog since last year. we were surprised that "wawam" was mentioned in the posts in that blog.

also, we saw some comments there that used "wawam" as a username. we are even more surprised by those postings in the comments section. those are impostors. we have not posted any comment in that blog other than those on the DM9 Jayme/Syfu plagiarism post. comments made on others topics claiming they came from wawam are not true and they did not come from us.

it's a strange thing to do - we don't know why people will want to use the "wawam" username to post in blogs. very freaky!

for the record - wawam does not intend to post or make a comment in that blog in the future. when and IF we do, we will also state it here in this blog. other "wawam" postings if not published here are impostors.

although not true, we are nevertheless flattered that Pinoy Advertising Tsismax , as they obviously found it important and useful, to drop the WAWAM name as a reader of their blog and a fan, even! we will allow that blog to think we are a fan for whatever self-serving purpose they may find in it.

but for the rest, we categorically say we are not a fan and we do not even read that blog.
