Crazy Thoughts


I am an advertising fanatic. I savor good advertisements and I can only count within my fingers those ads that made a mark into my memory…and yet there are those ads which I just love to hate. Well, this post is just but a common observation and the what if’s of the wonderful world of consumerism.


  • I have yet to see a Napkin advertisement which uses red as the color to simulate the ‘heavy flow.’ Well, they usually use Blue…maybe to lessen the grossness hahaha!

  • Tall billboards towered many of the streets with pictures of good looking ladies or gents, greatly posing with their gym carved bodies…and yet what struck me most was that they were just endorsing a shoe or a watch.

  • Would it be great if Funeral Parlors would have a SALE? Seriously, I believe many morbid citizens will grab each opportunity when they offer a FREE TRIAL or 50% OFF or Buy ONE TAKE ONE Sale. Wouldn’t you agree?

  • In the Marlboro Advertisement, it gallantly welcomes us to ‘Marlboro Country’, I just wonder if that particular place is where the people with emphysema, bronchitis and lung problems convene?

  • I’m playing the innocent card here so Ymir and Jin shut up hehe! Why do they add flavors to condoms? It’s not like someone will chew or eat it? Chocolate flavor my ass…why not concoct a DURIAN flavored condom now that they are at it!

  • If double standard should not be made, then men with big round bellies should also model briefs or boxers. Why limit the population with the ripped ab gym rats? Yeah! A little bit gross when you look into a billboard having a 300 pound man on his briefs--but that's reality! Ask many moms.

  • Lastly, why do all commercial models in print ads endorsing foods or beverages need to open their mouths so wide? Burger or drinks, you name it! Without a doubt, these models have mouths that can fill in two close fists.

Okay, the craziness stops here...



sidenote: Those who are requesting that I should also post sample of my paintings...I already did. Click pastels.

Durian? Ilove Durian and most Davaoweneos. Now, now don't be so naughty and say, "I'll guess from which province you are."

For the "Marlboro Country", I was there, but get out in a hurry because the Funeral Parlor was own by the same Marlboro Man. That's where he makes the "killling".

isa lang masasabi ko... gross!!! hahaha.

durian flavor? then that means it'll smell like durian also?

and i'll get a little intellectual, funeral parlors don't offer promos because of supply and demand. diba people would only buy when somebody died na, so no more time to scout for cheaper kabaong.

While we're at it, why don't the advertisers of those skin care products find a model that is naturally dark skinned (their target market)rather than one who obviously was already blessed with a fairer skin than most Pinays. Just to prove that their product can give the consumers, that 'mestiza' color.

hahaha. Chocolate flavor. Does this flavored contraceptives need to be orally swallowed? Graaargh.

Speaking of feminine wash, why don't we guys have masculine wash in the market?
