Spin doctors (and advertising agencies) in the Philippines are having a heyday competing with each other in presenting the most novel, most inspiring, most eye-catching, most convincing and most effective TV commercials for the Philippine Presidential bets for the national elections come May, 2010. Here are the latest batch of them and see how the contenders have slowly evolved from the start of their respective campaigns up to now.
Here is Sen. Noynoy Aquino doing rap with the youth, common masses and nephew Baby James (Yap).

Here is Bro. Eddie Villanueva’s MTV pitch to the youth (c/o rapper Gloc 9)…very yellow and very catchy!

Personally, all of the above are effective commercials and it just depends on who you are supporting right now. I have never been secretive about holding on to Sen. Noynoy for the Presidency, but I doff my hat to the four others for coming up with truly solid TV campaigns.
And the battle (for your votes) continues!!!
