Saturday, March 27, 2004I've been dying to blog for days now but there's just nothing to write about. I don't know if its just me, but i've been visiting other people's blogs and it seems that they have nothing to blog about as well. I think it's the !@#$%^& heat!
I wanted to post something yesterday so I thought of doing the friday five--my last resort at creating an entry, but turns out, even friday five didn't have any questions for me to answer. Boo hoo!
To the person who thought of this tagline: I applaud you. This is actually good. Unfortunately for you, we live in a religious country where child prostitution and sexual exploitation is rampant. Great tagline, wrong country.
And if i may add, I think your radio ad was all wrong. A man coming home late at night and his wife questioning him where he has been and asking if he's been fooling around with 15-year-olds just made things worse! You could probably have gotten away with just the billboard but this radio ad, was well, let me put it this way---you were asking for it.
Personally, I don't understand why everyone is making such a big deal out of this ad. Some are calling it obscene...well, i think obscenity is subjective. I don't get why women's right groups, the MTRCB, politicians and who else are picking on this brand while they're letting the other liquor brands get away with showing half naked or hell, even completely naked women on posters, prints ads and calendars? Or how did the movie, "Prosti" get approved by MTRCB? Isn't that a film about a student sleeping her way thru college? By showing that film, does it show that its ok to be a prostitute,even when you're underaged, as long as you have a pretty darn good reason for it? I'm just looking at both sides of the coin, here. Where's the justice in that, tiba?
I also don't understand why these politicians are so against this ad when they spend thousands on celebrities like the Viva Hot Babes, Sex bomb dancers, aubrey miles, Diana Zubiri, Maui Taylor and the like to perform dance/song numbers for their campaign. Do they actually think, men don't get turned on by these starlets even if they are just there to watch you campaign? Don't they think its possible that after watching these sexy stars perform, they'll get so horny, that they'll end up raping some girl who may or may not be a minor? *knock on wood*
Ang pla-plastic niyo. As in.
Its like one of my favorite bible verses (forgot from what book it is), "why look at the speck of dust in your brother's eye and not see the log in your own eye?" Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that I'm for this ad or that i don't see anything wrong with it--because I do. It's violating and yes, it does connote something bad. But in the same way, I just feel that we have better and more important things to worry about than this. If the government and most especially the media, wishes to put an end to everything and anything that will make people think of SEX, by all means, pick on Napoleon Brandy but after that, do something about the others too.
Just my 2 cents.
