Touching Filipinos Hearts through Family and Love - Advertisements

Filipinos probably are the most family-oriented people in the world. We put too much value and effort in keeping our families together even to the point wherein three generations live in the same roof or compound.

With such emphasis with the family, various brands knew just how to tickle the fancy of the Filipino people with advertisements that put value in traditions and love in the family. Below are just some of the most viral video advertisements in the Philippines.

1. Nestle Philippines TV Commercial: Nestle 100 Years "Pag-Ibig"

2. Mc Donalds Classic Philippine TV Commercial / Karen 

3. McDonalds Philippines New Commercial 2011' BF GF' FRIES

McDonald's Commercials

McDonalds understand that Filipinos could always "relate" to family-oriented advertisements and they definitely do a great job in creating such ads until their BF/GF commercial wherein a girl asked the boy if they're already in a relationship and the guy responded no because girlfriends demand a lot. The little girl then responded that she only wanted "McDo Frenchfries". Most responses were, "Aww,cute" and "Ah, sweet". But the Catholic Church thinks differently. While I respect the religious group's view, I don't think that it gives such a negative notion with today's generation's view of true love.

Therefore, when I saw this photo of Starbucks, I thought it would be a perfect response from Starbucks,
  "Gusto ko lang naman ng Starbucks, eh"

Johna, I loved these commercials! Thank you so much for sharing them. They really made me smile. I'm so glad that I picked up the same family values as Filipinos. I especially loved the third video when the grandfather gives half of his burger to his granddaughter because "she's his favorite." It was so touching! I bet the Catholic Church has nothing to say against that! =P
