These Travel Videos Will Make You Fall in Love With the Philippines More
They're doing a better job than you-know-who.
(SPOT.ph) After the Department of Tourism released its newest slogan "Experience the Philippines" and video "Sights" on June 12, people criticized not just the new tag itself, but also the lack of originality when people started noticing how similar it was to a South African tourism video. The government agency immediately broke ties with advertising agency McCann Worldgroup and is now open to pitches based on the previous slogan "It's More Fun in the Philippines." With the Filipinos' innate creativity and the Philippines’ natural beauty, it should have been easy if only the government knew where to look.
We round up some of the newly created videos (courtesy of Creatives of Manila and Story Collective) after the whole fiasco and some old ones from local and international travel vloggers. Enjoy!
