eddie villanueva’s “eddie ako” tv ad going for wonder girls’ “nobody”?

eddie villanueva’s tv ad using the  music video approach has made us wonder – did eddie villanueva attempt to go to the wonder girls’ “nobody” dance step phenom that has swept the country?

“nobody” is the undisputed national dance step of the year where is is danced by everyone, children and adults in all sorts of gatherings and parties. you can’t be in if you do not know the dance steps.

we wonder if villanueva was able to achieve what the wonder girls were able to do to our dance crazy country? 

there are other things that bothered us about villanueva’s tv ad:

we understand the intent of this sequence - to show that people from all walks of life are helping the villanueva campaign to move ahead. but this sequence also shows, unintended perhaps, that the villanueva campaign has stalled, that it has failed to move forward. you want to show only the good side in any ad.

this one made us cringe - the roof of the mini-bus was full of people, most were seated, some were standing while the bus was moving. i was half-expecting to see people falling off the roof and getting crushed by the bus. again, we understand the intent - to show that there is an over-flow of people joining the villanueva campaign, but they did not have to dramatize that by showing something very unsafe as this one where people are on the roof of a moving bus.

    This is such an amateur video. Kung sino ang nagdirect nito needs to go back to school. Sino ba ang kumakandidato si Eddie or yung singer. Half of the time it was focus on the singer for the whole 2 minutes of the commercial. I got tired of waiting who is the candidate. Ha ha ha…

      hahaha. that is a very good observation. i agree, too much on the singer, too little on the candidate.

      does anyone know who the singer is? sikat ba yan?

        si Gloc9 ang kumanta. and as far as i know, sikat at established cya.. paste ko dito ang sabi ng wikipedia tungkol sa kanya..

        “Gloc-9 is an Awit Award-winning Filipino fatest rising rapper. His fast-flowing vocal style has made him one of the most successful hip-hop artists in the Philippines. He has won the award for Best Rap Artist at the Philippine Hip-Hop Music Awards for three consecutive years (2005-2007) and has also been recognized by the MYX and MTV Music Awards. He was described by fellow Filipino rapper Francis Magalona as “a blacksmith of words and letters, and a true Filipino poet.”[1]
        Gloc-9 has also contributed to the soundtracks of several films, including Star Cinema’s “Jologs” and “Trip.”

          rap is a music genre that appeals to the youth. and most likely this singer’s popularity are with the youth, teens specifically. most of the teens are none voters yet. the choice of this singer and rap as the music is one more failing of this ad. they have chosen an artist whose appeal is mostly among non-voters.

      A very important note to consider: hindi pa po campaign period ngayon (legally).. so hindi po yun kampanya..

        that is not excuse for villanueva to come up with a lousy ad. it is not as if villanueva has a lot of money that he can produce maany tv ads. for him, i thank coming out with the best the first time is very important. he might not have more funds to make a 2nd ad. lost opportunity. sayang.

    Marahil ay kailangan nating tignan ang isang presidentiable hindi lamang sa pamamagitan ng kanyang mga ad. Nasa tamang pag-iisip na tayo. Tignan natin ang kaniyang mga kuwalipikasyon. Kilatisin nating mabuti si Brother Eddie.

    Just listen to the lyrics . The lyrics has a promising hope for the Filipino people. Each one has a part. Each one should have a genuine desire to contribute his part for a better Philippines. Kaya walang nangyayari sa Pinas, kasi naka depende lang kayo sa gagawin ng Presidente lang. Di po dapat ganon ano? Lahat tayo dapat gumalaw at makibahagi para umunlad ang ating bansa . Sinong magpapaunland ng ating bansa ? EDDIE IKAW AT AKO. Saka kwidaw ka sa maraming naipapakitang ads sa TV, ang mahal non ano? San nila kukunin yun pag marami ng nawala sa pondo ng mga Presdientiables na gumagastos non or ung mga friends and supporters nila syempre kakabig yun di ba? Alam ni Brother Eddie kung gaano ang corruption sa ating bansa kaya gusto nyang maging instrumento para mapunta sa atin ang dapat mapunta sa atin , lalo na sa mga kapospalad. Abah eh 50 na ako,hanggang ngayon wala pa ring pagbabago sa ating bansa. Kailangan talaga natin ang isang Presidente na may takot sa Diyos hindi takot sa tao na tumulong sa kanila para sila ilukluk sa pwesto . Please lang no po, wag na po nating iboto ung mga nagsitanda ng mga politoko na walang ginawa sa senado at kongreso kundi magpapogi at magpayaman lang . Please lang po. It is about time for us to see a better Philippine bago man lang tayo lubugan ng araw ano po? Iboto ang tama at iboto ang bata at tunay na may magagawa. wag bumoto ng nakapikit ne po? KNOW WELL YOUR CANDIDATES!!!

    Kanya kanya lang ng style yan nakauna lang ng magandang ads si Bro Eddie ang grabe na ng mga critics. Let us allow all kinds of ideas and advertisements to be aired in television, and let the people decide whom to vote on May 2010. That’s why it is called democracy. Carry on the Fight Bro. Eddie!!! God Bless You!!!

    Hmp! sa mga nagsasabing corny ang ad ni bro. Eddie. Napaka unique and catchy nga,e. Sana lang lagyan na rin ng lyrics sa ibaba para makita ng lahat ang ganda ng sinasabi sa kanta at sana nga lang din maging open-minded yung iba para mabuksan talaga sa kanila ang ganda ng mensahe nito. Hay naku! Magpakatalino na tayo mga Filipino. Alam naman natin na ang iba dyan babawiin ang nagastos nila sa ads nila. At least kay Bro. Eddie, sigurado akong hindi magiging corrupt bagkus lilinisin ang pulitika!

    Babangon ang Pilipinas…

    Imulat natin lahat ang ating mata sa katotohanan.. nawala ang moralidad ng bansa kaya nagkakaroon ng corruption… ang kasalanan ang naging sanhi ng pagkalubog ng ating bayan sa kahirapan…

    Wag na natin hayaan pang tuluyang malunod ang ating bayan sa kahirapan.. iwaksi natin ang corruption…

    Lahat Naghahanap tayo ng pagbabago pero pag may paraan para sa pagbabago nagbubulagbulagan tayo..ano ba talaga ang gusto natin?

    Ipopost ko lang po ung lyrics para naman maunawaan natin ng mahusay…

    Eddie Ako! Official Music Video
    Composed by: Paul Armesin
    Singer: Gloc 9

    I
    Umasa kang pagbangon ay posible pa
    Pangarap nating araw ay sisiskat na
    Pag-asay magniningas sa bagong Pilipinas

    II
    Buong sambayanan magkapit bisig na
    Upang tunay na pagbabagoy magsimula
    Sa pag sulong ng bayan, makiisa!

    Chorus:
    Sino pang may malasakit at pag-ibig sa bansa
    Sino pa? Eh di ako!
    Kailan mag uumpisa? Magkaisa, kumilos na!
    Kailan pa? Eh di ngayon!
    Sino pa nga bang gagawa?
    Sinong pagsisimulan
    Sinong magtataguyod ng bayan ni Juan?
    Eh di ako!

    RAP by Gloc 9:
    Panahon na para sa pag bangon, sa kahirapan lahat ay umahon/
    Ngayon ang oras ng pagbabago isang bayan para sa tao/
    Kanino ba dapat ang simula/ Ang pag asa ng bayan ay mag mula/
    tungo sa pag sulong ang sagot ko kung walang aako
    Eh di ako!

    Sana mamulat ang kaisipan natin…
