aside from the actual fight, the things to watch out for in tomorrow’s fight are the tv ads of the presidentiables and other political candidates. for sure the politicians will be airing their ads heavily if not air new tv ads. i would be very surprised if the presidentiables do not launch new tv ads during the fight.
the pacquiao-cotto fight is probably the closest the country comes to The Super Bowl in the US where practically all homes in the US tune in on the Super Bowl with many having parties and the US ad industry going crazy in airing their best and brightest. the Super Bowl brings in the audience, the ratings are always sky-high which allows the Super Bowl to price their tv spot at an amazing $3 Million per 30 second spot.
(read more on Super Bowl Ads here: http://the-wawam-file.blogspot.com/search/label/super%20bowl).
at that extremely high cost, the US ad industry kills itself in coming up with their best ads. ads aired in the Super Bowl has become an event in itself where the audience have come to expect and anticipate great ads. talks the day after at water coolers among the audience are not only on the game itself but also the ads they saw in the super bowl.
(view ads aired in the Super Bowl here: http://the-wawam-file.blogspot.com/search/label/super%20bowl%20ads)
careers and marketing success are made at the super bowl for ad people and ad agencies. apple was one and coca cola is another.
it will not be exactly what will happen in the pacquiao-cotto fight but we can expect presidentiables to air new ads tomorrow. the fight will most likely get the highest rating this year and the history of advertising in the country. while 30 second ad costs are expected to be extremely high, we think, just like at the super bowl, it is very much worth it.
gilbert teodoro did it during the pacquiao-hatton fight where he aired his disaster preparedness tv ad and introduced himself for the first time to the voters. (read here: gilbert who? introduces himself in tv ad) teodoro’s ad was aired in every commercial break in that fight.
let us just hope that the quality of the ads the politicians will air tomorrow will be as good as the ones aired in the super bowl.
here is a thought:
loren legarda said she will announce her plans for 2010 on november 15. hmm…… we wonder if legarda will do it via a new tv ad to be aired tomorrow during the fight?
we like chiz escudero. we particularly like to hear him speak. he is the most eloquent of all the presidentiables specially in pilipino. you just have to bear and grin the monotone delivery and statue like poker face. but once you get past that this man makes a lot of sense. he also has his principles and priorities in the right place.
we are saddened that the NPC has abandoned chiz or that chiz abandoned the NPC. we think, as we have previously asked in this blog, chiz escudero’s run for the president is dead in the water with the most recent developments.
dead as it may be, we like to give him two options for a hail mary pass. one is a miracle, the other redemption.

we had 2 questions in our october 25 post in this blog (click to read) – will chiz escudero be orphaned? is his presidential bid dead in the water?.
the first question has been answered – he is now orphaned. on the second question, yes we think escudero’s run for the presidency is dead in the water.
mar roxas getting a 40% in the 3rd qtr VP poll puts him at a dominant leadership position just like his partner noynoy aquino. this puts their tandem at a very steep leadership position.
it also shows roxas has recovered and rebuilt his image coming from the “putang-ina” incident. what redeemed him was his words and behavior when noynoy spent a few weeks figuring out if he will run for president or not. roxas withdrawing his own bid for the presidency and the way he did it was excellent statesmanship.

teodoro is fighting a very hard fight. not only is he against opposition presidentiables who are much ahead in the polls, he is also fighting the ghosts and demons present in his ruling party and arroyo, the one with the kiss of death.
this is a major development and pledge. it’s strong enough that kris aquino and korina sanchez are there to campaign for the aquino-roxas tandem, adding megastar sharon cuneta to the list is, well pretty mega.
the aquino-roxas tandem has the potential to bring in a very wide crowd to their cause. they will not only attract people from across the board, they will more importantly attract the young.
the tactical blunder is that aquino has inadvertently set up his audience and supporters for disappointment. he may have set the bar of expectations way too high.
political campaigns is very much about image building. building an image of being a winner is certainly one of the things you want to have. you want to nurture an image of momentum if not greatness or at least always being on the right thing.
the safest and smartest approach is always to downplay achievements, or hit the lower side so that there is an automatic claim of success. raising the bar too high is a very dangerous thing as it does not leave room for failure which is what aquino has done.

the last senatorial election when almost all senatorial candidates of the administration lost in the election. the admin senators lost despite malacanang boasting about the GDP growth during that time and saying their political machinery was working for the admin senators. even senator trillanes won that election who was in jail during the campaign period and had little advertising. on the other hand many of the admin senators were top ad spenders but lost the election just the same. the easy conclusion is that an arroyo endorsement or being associated with arroyo is a kiss of death.

is she or isn’t she? we don’t know if loren legarda will run for president or not. she ran tv ads early this year then at some time after she announced she is postponing the official announcement of her candidacy.
here is one recent report – she will help in uniting the opposition.
this ad on villar is actually chismis. come on, be honest with yourselves. it is fare we all love to devour on sunday afternoon tv. the fact that we are looking into the private life of villar and we are taken there by boy abunda, the master chismis person is just perfect for our sense of peering into the private life of manny villar. pinoys are voyeurs, remember? (check back on how pinoys have been turned into voyeurs from here: http://wawam.wordpress.com/2009/06/01/haden-kho-and-katrina-halili-turned-us-all-into-voyeurs/)
the whole ad is just packaged very well. we should be bored with ads like these but we are not. we are fixed on the tv and we get to know who manny villar is. 4 stars!
major change in rankings among the presidentiables in poll – villar on a big time surge, now leading at 27%. binay drops to 2nd at 22% and lacson at 3rd at 16%.
