Out of Many--many More

By Gibbs22manila @gibbscadiz
For me, what's truly great about the Department of Tourism's newly-launched tourism campaign isn't so much its tagline--nope, I don't believe it's a copy of the 1951 Swiss ad; have you seen the Swiss ad?--as the agency's decision to crowd-source the campaign, or let others contribute ideas to it, using only the tagline as jump-off point and inspiration.
True to form, and completely validating the tagline's celebration of the Pinoy's ebullient nature, netizens have responded with an avalanche of proposed campaign images, many of striking creativity and polish. With the DOT's initial studies as cue (e.g., “Getting upstairs. More fun in the Philippines”--against a stunning backdrop of the rice terraces), and using either the contributor's own photos or sourced from elsewhere, the best entries so far have been those that get--partake in--the unconventional, lighthearted way the tagline is used. Literal is out, literate is in--the fun kind, thus offering the world not just a plain catalog of hardsell picturesque images, but a witty, tantalizing taste of the many quirks and attractions of Pinoy culture.
After this heartening burst of mass creative frenzy [some of my favorite images below], is there any lingering doubt that, yes, at the very least, we own that F word?
