Here’s to the Crazy Ones (Think Different campaign)

This is one of my favorite commercials of all time. It’s very inspiring and always moves me, no matter how many times I see it. I thought of it since i just talked about challenging the norms in my recent post “The Rebel Within“.

Here’s to the crazy ones.

The misfits.

The rebels.

The troublemakers.

The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things differently.

They’re not fond of rules.

And they have no respect for the status quo.

You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them.

About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them.

Because they change things.

They push the human race forward.

And while some see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.

Because the people who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world…

Are the ones who do.

Tuloy: Sarah Geronimo, Somedaydream and Gary Valenciano Collaborate

When in Manila, you’re sure to find ways to be happy!

I remember a friend who toured his foreigner boss around Manila. On his last day, as the said boss was making his way to the Airport, he mentioned some things he noticed in Manila:

Boss: “I lost count of the people I see smiling.”

My friend: “Sorry, what did you say?”

Boss: “It’s been a habit of mine, to count the people smiling from the hotel to the airport in the countries I go to.”

My friend: “Okay…?”

Boss: “On the average, I see about 3-5 people smiling, but in the Philippines – I lost count!”

That’s the thing about us Filipinos. We love to smile even if we know life could get difficult, to be happy no matter what and we truly believe in happiness.

This is exactly the message of the latest song performed together by three of the best artists in the Philippines, Sarah Geronimo, Somedaydream and Gary Valenciano. The three artists collide to make one great song “Tuloy.”

It’s all about happiness and continuously nourishing that happiness by passing it on to others. It’s all about singing or dancing to your favorite tune, to shout for joy from your accomplishments and that sweet smile of people who follow their dreams!

Happiness is the new sexy!

Gary V Sarah Geronimo Somedaydrea Tuloy WhenInManila

And the three artists embody that new level of sexiness.

Gary Valenciano is a living heritage. Through the years, he has exuded positivity and is a symbol of energy and refreshment. He definitely is MR. PURE ENERGY!

Sarah Geronimo is our present-day superstar: the girl who followed her dreams and a beacon of possibilities. The small town girl to talent search winner and right now – a SUPERSTAR!

Rez Toledo, or popularly known as Somedaydream, is the FUTURE SUPERSTAR. He is the up and coming talent in the Philippines and a shape of the things to come in the music industry.

Check out the official music video of Tuloy:


You can also download Tuloy here for FREE! So sing to it, dance with it and share the happiness to everyone!


Anyway, just in case you want to sing along, here’s the lyrics to the new hit, “Tuloy”





Kahit na anong mangyari

Ang Lungkot ay mapapawi

Buksan na ang saya

Malilimutan ang problema.


Di ka na magiisa

Sasamahan ka san man magpunta

Sasabay sa pag-ikot mundoy makulay

Hayaan mong mabigyan ng saya

Ang iyong buhay


Sa harap at likod, kaliwa at kanan ko

Hintayin mo lang di mag tatagal marararanasan mo



Tuloy lang ang saya

Tuloy lang ang ligaya

Tuloy lang talaga

Kaibigan at pamilya

(Iwanan na ang lungkot)

(Iwanan na ang inis)

Basta’t habang naririto ako

Tuloy ang happiness


Saan ka man naroroon

Sa gitna ng noon at ng ngayon





Sa harap at likod, kaliwa at kanan ko

Hintayin mo lang di mag tatagal mararanasan mo


Repeat Chorus 2x

Tuloy ang Happiness…

Somebody That I Used to Know by Gotye featuring Kimbra with Lyrics Video and Acoustic Remix

I don’t know why but every time I end up REALLY liking a song, I play it over and over and over and over…. again.

Right now, I got this very dark song stuck in my head.

Below is the music video / film clip for the Gotye song “Somebody That I Used To Know” featuring Kimbra from the Gotye album Making Mirrors.

On a scale of one to Adele for his breakup, I’d say Gotye’s s pretty close to Setting Fire to the Rain.



Australian singer Gotye has become an international sensation with his haunting song, “Someone that I Used to Know.” He makes his KCRW debut with a live set of soaring art-pop songs. Watch / Listen to the full session here:


Oh and check out this REALLY good acoustic rendition / cover of Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know” by Pentatonix below:


And check out this “One-Guitar-Wonder!” – Somebody That I Used to Know – Walk off the Earth (Gotye – Cover)



Somebody That I Used To Know lyrics

Now and then I think of when we were together
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
Told myself that you were right for me
But felt so lonely in your company
But that was love and it’s an ache I still remember

You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness
Like resignation to the end
Always the end
So when we found that we could not make sense
Well you said that we would still be friends
But I’ll admit that I was glad that it was over

But you didn’t have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened
And that we were nothing
And I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger
And that feels so rough
You didn’t have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records
And then change your number
I guess that I don’t need that though
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
But had me believing it was always something that I’d done
And I don’t wanna live that way
Reading into every word you say
You said that you could let it go
And I wouldn’t catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know…

But you didn’t have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened
And that we were nothing
And I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger
And that feels so rough
You didn’t have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records
And then change your number
I guess that I don’t need that though
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

I used to know
That I used to know

Aids Awareness: Live Long Enough to Find the Right One



Nice message.

The “Live long enough to find the right one” campaign to use condoms and protect yourselves from STDs.

It’s an old commercial that won a Gold Lion at the Cannes Lions festival. Just though tI’d share it again since I just read about the AIDS epidemic who’s numbers seem to keep rising.

Best Cartoon Pics for Facebook: Carton Characters Invade Profile Pictures Online

Does your friend Dan look a lot like that Road Runner Cartoon? Maybe your aunt Shelby is starting to look a tad bit like Richie Rich? Is your buddy Paul looking like the Smurfs? Are over 50% of your friends starting to look like cartoon characters?

If you’re wondering about the whole “cartoon pictures for facebook profile” thing that’s going on right now, then fear not. You have not teleported into an inter-dimentional portal where cartoon characters rule the world. Instead, the cartoon character pictures are merely a symbol of people’s advocacy against violence towards kids.

The whole cartoon character profile picture thing started when this little note started making its rounds on Facebook:

“Change your facebook profile picture to a cartoon from your childhood and invite your friends to do the same. Until monday (Dec.6) there should be no human faces on FB, but an invasion of memories. THIS IS A CAMPAIGN TO STOP VIOLENCE AGAINST CHILDRENing its rounds on Facebook”

Cool as this cause may seem, it was later discovered that there is no official event, organization or committee that is managing this. Instead, reports even say that it may have initially started as a joke or even a dare just to get someone to change their profile picture to that of a cartoon character.

Either way, there isn’t really much harm done, other than a cartoonish looking portrait on your profile.

It was too hard for me to pick just one cartoon, so here’s my top 5 picks for Best Cartoon Pics for Facebook.

*Not on here, but would be if I wasn’t so sleepy at freakin’ 2:06am…. would be the Ghostbusters, He-Man and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!

5. Daria – Ultimate 90s Cartoon!

If I had to sum up the 90s into three words… it would be: “Like totally dude.”

On the other hand, if I had to sum up the 90s into one word, it would be “DARIA”

Daria Morgendorffer is a smart & cynical girl who goes through teenage life as an proud outsider in a world of mainly idiotic teens and condescending adults. This MTV series had a great run with many episodes often referencing current events in pop culture.

The people of Lawndale just don’t get Daria Morgendorffer. She’s cool with that. See, Daria was born alienated, and now she’s just trying to make it through high school with as little human contact as possible. Popularity, friends, activities… whatever. Daria lacks enthusiasm, but she makes up for it with sarcasm. Daria is the spin-off of MTV’s most sucessful cartoon, Beavis and Butt-Head.

Like…. totally dude.

4. Spiderman and His Amazing Friends and those other old school Marvel Cartoons

I don’t know about you…. but I first had a geekgasm after discovering Spiderman had amazing friends. Of course, this awesomeness of a show was aptly named: “Spiderman and his Amazing Friends” as creativity was not discovered until the mid 90s.

Other than Spiderman, Iceman and Firestar, there were also the other 60s Marvel cartoons like the Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Thor, The Hulk, The Submariner and more! They all showed right after class and I remember rushing home to see them! Ahhhh, the memories… CLANG BAM POW!


3. Thunder Cats and their Hoes

Thunder…. Thunder…. THUNDER CATS…. HOOOOOOOO!!!

Let’s face it… this cartoon just had waaay too many adult related imageries that still haunts our minds. From Lion-O’s sword getting a boner every time he sees the other characters in their dominatrix outfits to Cheetara’s very revealing outfit; this was definitely one of my favorites! Oh and my sword got long and hard too whenever I saw Cheetara….


2. G.I. Joe

Knowing is half the battle and watching the G.I. Joes usually took up half the time I was supposed to spend studying. This racist cartoon, where all Asians knew karate and all black dudes rhymed when they spoke, was one amazing misrepresentation of wars and the military. But hella fun to watch! YO JOE!


The man had his own G.I. Joe character, and the cartoon version's arms had to be toned down from from their original size in order to fit on the TV screen.

He'll fight for freedom wherever there's trouble! G.I

1. ORIGINAL Transformers Cartoon Profile Pic

Let’s face it, those robots that turned into cars were the coolest thins ever! And no, I’m not talking about the GoBots…. I’m talking about the Autobots and Decepticons! Also, though Megan Fox really gave us our money’s worth, nothing beats the original Transformers! ROLL OUT!

Anyway, sorry but let me change my title from: Best Cartoon Pics for Facebook: Carton Characters Invade Profile Pictures Online to just:

How to Make a Viral Video: American Taxi Drivers Gets Job in the Philippines

If you haven’t seen this viral video above, it’s the perfect example of authentic content that can become viral with very little cost to the producers!

The problem with most companies is that they try too hard. They sit in a boardroom for four hours and “strategize” their “viral video” to promote their product or brand. The problem is that the interweb hates sales pitches and won’t bother forwarding your video to their friends if it’s a commercial.

The first thing you need to understand is that it is VERY DIFFICULT and EXTREMELY UNLIKELY that you can “create a Viral Video.” What you can do is CREATE GREAT CONTENT!

The whole part where your content goes viral is mostly organic and will do it without you pushing.

If you ever have to beg a friend to “Please repost this video,” then that simply means that you do not make a truly “viral” video.

Viral content is a creature of its own. It will get passed on and reposted on every Facebook page and Twitter message because it has great content.

Basically, these “viral” videos need to be so good, that not passing it on would seem illogical and passing it on would make the “passer” get some cool points.

Again, get that “Make a Viral Video” idea out of your mind! That mindset won’t get you far. What you need to do is MAKE GREAT CONTENT! Becoming “viral” is the result of your great content.

Some no-no’s if you want to make viral content include having too much branding and trying too hard. If you’re ever going to put any branding in your content that you want to go “viral.” It has to be either very subtle or the content has to be absolutely amazing! Again, no one wants to pass on a commercial (unless it’s one hell of a great commercial).

The guys on the video above titled: “Jobs Philippines – American Taxi Drivers,” Tory and Jason, are going to be my guests on Mellow 94.7 to talk about this video. They will also be my guests as I speak at the “EntrepSummit: Technopreneurs Reveal their Secrets” seminar at the Mall of Asia, organized by the Manila Junior Chamber (Manila JCs). I’ll be talking about “How to Go from Zero to Hero,” – Gaining popularity with online branding, internet marketing and help from the internet.

GAYTACULAR Celebration for Miss Philippines Venus Raj at Miss Universe 2010

Wait for it…. the video goes from gay to GAYTACULAR at about the 2:27 mark.

This is the gayest thing I’ve seen in a long time! And when I say gayest, I’m not talking about happy in the 1940s.

I assume that these guys ran a train on each other or at least had a circle jerk when Miss Philippines 2010 Venus Raj was announced as a member of the top 5 Miss Universe 2010 contestants.

Gotta appreciate the support from these guys though!

I wonder how they reacted to the Miss Philippines 2010 answer?

GAYTACULAR Celebration for Miss Philippines Venus Raj at Miss Universe 2010

Congratulations to all the winners of the Miss Universe 2010 pageant! Congratulations to Miss Philippines 2010 Venus Raj for placing in the top 5!

We may not have had as GAYTACULAR of a reaction to the announcement of Miss Philippines 2010 Venus Raj in the Miss Universe 2010 Top 15 as the guys in the video did….. but we were all cheering for you in our own ways!

Legendary Shots: The World’s Farthest Basketball Shot

Have you guys seen this?!?! They shot a basketball from a BUILDING!!!!

This was supposedly the worlds farthest basketball shot! Beat that Larry Bird and Michael Jordan!

Legendary Shots: The World’s Farthest Basketball Shot

Evan from The Legendary Shots throws a ball from the top of the Vulcan monument in Birmingham, Alabama. To our knowledge, this is the farthest shot (direct distance from shooter to goal) ever made. Whether it’s also the longest (horizontal distance) is debatable.


Height: The platform is 134 feet above ground level, and the ball was released from about 6 feet above the platform. The goal was 10 feet high and was placed about 10 feet below the base of the statue, meaning the height from hoop to shooter was 140 feet.

Length: This is harder to tell, but we had a few people pace it off, and they came in at between 50 and 60 paces. The average person’s pace is about 3 feet, so the length of the shot is about 150-180 feet.

Direct distance: Since height^2 + length^2 = distance^2, the distance from the shooter’s hand to the hoop is about 205-228 feet.

Tries: They say it took them about 170 tries. Which is still pretty impressive…. I would’ve guessed 321,974 tries….

Beware of Hungry Fat People: The McNugget Rampage

I’ve said it before… and I’ll say it again… “BEWARE OF HUNGRY FAT PEOPLE!!!

You’ve been warned….

Oh and be careful with Zombies too…

and terminator robots….

especially zombie terminator robots!

McNugget Rampage

The video was released Monday when it became public record. A security video from a McDonald’s in Ohio shows a woman punching two restaurant employees and smashing a drive-thru window because she couldn’t get Chicken McNuggets.

The tantrum caught on tape in Toledo earlier this year shows the customer reaching through the drive-thru window, slugging one worker and then another. She then grabs a bottle out of her car and tosses it through the glass window before speeding off.

It happened early on New Year’s Day. Police say Melodi Dushane was angry that McNuggets weren’t being served, because it was breakfast time.

Dushane says she was drunk at the time. She was sentenced to 60 days in jail last month and ordered to pay McDonald’s for the broken window.
