The Torotot Campaign: Save a Finger, Blow a Torotot

For the New Year in the Philippines, it’s become tradition, and a necessity, for many people to get the biggest, baddest and loudest fireworks to light up themselves.

Problem is, that every New Year in the Philippines, there’s also hundreds of people who end up loosing their fingers, or more, due to faulty fireworks.

It’s because of this, that we at Mellow 94.7’s The Wake Up Show have decided to run the “Toroto Campaign!” (Twitter #torototcampaign).

Just in case you’re not familiar, torotot is just local slang for the New Year horns or maybe we can even sort of compare it to the vuvuzelas from the World Cup that we saw a flurry of. Either way, a torotot is something that won’t take your fingers away by accident.

In many other countries, fireworks are actually illegal and only those with proper permits can have those dangerous light shows. Moreover, fireworks cost a lot of money! Why risk your fingers and pay a lot of money, just to blow it up?

So I say leave it to the professionals. Head over to the malls, hotels or other venues who will be having the professional and better looking fireworks this New Year!

Oh and my partner Tracy also had more suggestions on slogans for this #TorototCampaign:

Tumorotot ka na ba?

I love a big torotot

Two thumbs up! – Because I still have two thumbs #torototcampaign

My torotot is bigger than your torotot

Mas masarap, mas masaya tumorotot

Do it the Torotot way

But for now, I think we’re sticking to the Save a Finger, Blow a Torototslogan.

Can you add more slogans for us to promote this? Please tweet and be sure to use the #torototcampaign hashtag.

Have a very happy and SAFE New Year! Spread the word about the #TorototCampaign!
