NEWS5 Launches #NaisKo B.A.Y.A.W. for President

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)



NEWS5 Launches #NaisKo B.A.Y.A.W. for President


As the playing field shapes up for the 2016 presidential election with the proclamation of a few front liners for the country’s top post, NEWS5 recently launched its unique B.A.Y.A.W. for President election advocacy campaign.

A series of vignettes in which fictional events are presented to create a parody of the Philippines’ current political landscape, B.A.Y.A.W. for President is presented with the look and feel of a TV documentary, but with the irreverent humor and slapstick of a popular comedian, designed to mock the subject it features.

With this innovative and trailblazing approach, NEWS5 hopes that the advocacy campaign will help the electorate decide which presidential aspirant is most qualified to lead the country for the next six years. Hence, the tag line, “Ano ang nais mo?”

In each vignette, NEWS5’s Jun Sabayton plays a nuisance candidate running under B.A.Y.A.W. or the Bagong Alyansang Ayaw sa Walang Hiya platform. Sabayton is quick to denounce his rivals as corrupt and incompetent. The truth is, he himself is involved in corrupt practices.

As Lourd de Veyra puts it, Sabayton is a “walang hiyang ayaw sa kapwa walang hiya.”

The acronym B.A.Y.A.W. also serves as the anchor for its platform.

B stands for “Bahay ni B.A.Y.A.W. para sa mga magnanakaw sa gobyerno.” All corrupt government officials will be placed in house arrest under his administration.

A stands for “Alisin ang baha.” As flood has remained a problem unsolved by previous administrations, B.A.Y.A.W.’s solution is simply to outlaw it for good. “Kung ginagawa ng DPWH ang kanilang trabaho, hindi dapat bumabaha,” he argues.

Y is for “Yariin ang mga palpak na nagpapatakbo ng MRT.” As the country’s top railway transportation is a problem on its own, B.A.Y.A.W. is seeking the death penalty for the MRT operators as they are “killing” hordes of commuters on a daily basis.

A is “Ayaw sa mahirap.” In his desire to provide for a better life for his fellow Filipinos, B.A.Y.A.W. says, “Gusto ko hindi ka lang happy, wealthy pa!

W stands for “Walang dagdag umento pero may dagdag na linggo part 2.” His solution for wage and salary increase concerns: “Alisin ang Lunes sa kalendaryo para sa dagdag pahinga.”

As the campaign is slowly and ultimately reveals B.A.Y.A.W. as a candidate not worth voting for, viewers will see him and the party he represents as the classic trapo — the perpetrator of patronage politics. In the same vein, they will also wisely compare the B.A.Y.A.W.-like candidate/s to presidential hopefuls who have something better to offer.”

A popular fixture on NEWS5 and Digital’s online-only shows like Tanods and Kontrabando, Sabayton is a social satirist who is also an accomplished film and video director, photographer and production designer.

B.A.Y.A.W. will soon reveal his running mate as his campaign shifts into full gear. As audiences catch on, B.A.Y.A.W. for President campaign materials like posters, T-shirts and stickers will also be distributed. Since its launch, the campaign has produced its own Bayawmetrics, visited several barangays and has even graced the halftime of a PBA basketball game.

B.A.Y.A.W. is definitely all over the place. People will see more of him in the days to come. To log in your support, visit http://bayaw.ph.

James Bond 007 Spectre Movie Newest Poster Released

James Bond 007 Spectre Movie Newest Poster Released


The latest official poster from SPECTRE has just been released, and it features Daniel Craig as James Bond in a white tux set against a dark green tinted version of a man in a skeleton outfit. The latter may be from the Mexico City-set opening sequence which takes place during the 'Day of the Dead' festival.

SPECTRE follows the release of SKYFALL, the biggest Bond film of all time, which took in $1.1 billion worldwide.

A cryptic message from the past sends James Bond (Daniel Craig) on a rogue mission to Mexico City and eventually Rome, where he meets Lucia Sciarra (Monica Bellucci), the beautiful and forbidden widow of an infamous criminal. Bond infiltrates a secret meeting and uncovers the existence of the sinister organisation known as SPECTRE.

Meanwhile back in London, Max Denbigh (Andrew Scott), the new head of the Centre for National Security, questions Bond’s actions and challenges the relevance of MI6, led by M (Ralph Fiennes). Bond covertly enlists Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) and Q (Ben Whishaw) to help him seek out Madeleine Swann (Lea Seydoux), the daughter of his old nemesis Mr White (Jesper Christensen), who may hold the clue to untangling the web of SPECTRE. As the daughter of an assassin, she understands Bond in a way most others cannot.

As Bond ventures towards the heart of SPECTRE, he learns of a chilling connection between himself and the enemy he seeks, played by Christoph Waltz.

Sam Mendes returns to direct SPECTRE, with Daniel Craig reprising his role as 007 for the fourth time. SPECTRE is produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, from a script by John Logan and Neal Purvis & Robert Wade.

The film also stars Dave Bautista and Rory Kinnear.

Opening across the Philippines on November 06, 2015, “Spectre” will be distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.

Vice Ganda Reacts to AlDub Phenomenon: "May kumpetisyon!"


With AlDub putting Eat Bulaga! as the leading afternoon show both in AGB Nielsen Mega Manila and Kantar/TNS Nationwide ratings dominating the Top 10 programs over-all, it was reported that its rival show "It's Showtime" is planning to launch several segments that will get a fair share of shot in the ratings game. 

In one of his recent interviews, Vice Ganda admitted that there is indeed a competition between his show and the longest running noontime show in the country - Eat Bulaga!

Bago pa naman nagka-AlDub, talagang may kumpetisyon na ang ABS at ang GMA.  Hindi lang naman Showtime saka Eat Bulaga.
 

Teleserye nila, kakumpitensiya ng teleserye namin… lahat.  Kaya napakaipokrita, napakaipokrito na pagka sinabi ko, ‘Naku, walang kumpetisyon!  May kumpetisyon ‘yan, and it’s a healthy competition.” he said.

Vic Sotto and Pauleen Luna Engaged! Wedding Details Revealed

Vic Sotto and Pauleen Luna Engaged! Wedding Details Revealed


“In God’s perfect time,” Pauleen Luna said on her Instagram account hours after her long-time boyfriend Vic Sotto admitted that they are engaged.

The statement is a fitting description in the newest chapter of their colorful love story.

Pauleen joined “Eat Bulaga” in 2005, but she actually first met Vic as a contestant in the noontime show’s Little Miss Philippines contest in 1995. Vic admitted he is in a relationship with Pauleen in 2013, more than a year after it was first speculated that the two were a couple.

Pauleen is now 26 years old and Vic is 61 years old; between is them a gap of 35 years which, the two said in interviews, was never an issue in their relationship.

The TV host-actress, in previous interviews, maintained that she’s not in a hurry to tie the knot, adding that she is secured and contented with her relationship with the veteran TV host-comedian

Vic kept mum on the details of the engagement and their wedding, saying he will divulge them “sa tamang panahon.”

But as showbiz relationships go, nothing is actually ever a secret, whether the couple wants it to be or not.

Here are five things we know about Vic and Pauleen's engagement and their upcoming wedding, according to the sources of Philippine Star Entertainment Editor Ricky Lo and Pilipino Star Ngayon Showbiz Editor Salve Asis.
  • Pauleen’s engagement ring is a three-carat Solitaire engagement ring that Vic bought in Hong Kong last week, according to Lo. If this true, it means Vic proposed to Pauleen only recently. The veteran TV host-comedian’s trip to Hong Kong is one of “rare trips abroad without Pauleen,” Lo added.
  • Vic kept mum on the details of their engagement. But Lo said the wedding is “definitely set before end of this year.” This was reported on the STAR last May, prior to rumors of their engagement.
  • Vic already asked permission from his children to marry Pauleen. The “Eat Bulaga” host has four- Oyo Boy, Danica, Paulina and Vico.
  • According to Asis’s source, Pauleen may her wedding gown in the US. “Tiyak mamimili na siya either Vera Wang o Monique Lhuillier,” she wrote.
  • If the wedding pushes through before the end of the year, it will be a simple affair. “Simpleng wedding lang daw ang plano ng magkarelasyon at strictly for family and friends lang ayon pa sa source,” Asis wrote.

Cignal TV Hits a Record Setting 1-Million Subscribers


Cignal TV, the Philippines’ No. 1 pay-TV provider and leader in quality programming, has just reached another milestone by being the first and only pay-TV service provider in the country to acquire 1 million subscribers.

 
Round table discussion with Cignal TV's business editors (from left to right) - Cignal TV VP for Marketing, Mr. Guido Zaballero; Cignal TV Chief Operating Officer, Mr. Oscar A. Reyes Jr.; Cignal TV President and CEO, Mr. Emmanuel C. Lorenzana; First VP for Network Engineering and Operations, Mr. Benedict Galang 


Established in 2009, Cignal - the pay TV business of MediaQuest, which is owned by Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co.’s (PLDT) Beneficial Trust Fund - has overtaken its competitors’ dominance in the world of pay television.

Cignal Chief Operating Officer Oscar A. Reyes, Jr. said the country’s direct-to-home pay TV provider had 844,000 subscribers at end-2014. Earlier projections target Cignal to reach its 1 millionth subscriber by the end of 2015, which apparently the company has been able to achieve at this point. Majority of Cignal’s subscribers, in fact, have switched from their former pay-TV service providers attracted by the added value that Cignal gives to its subscribers.

Emmanuel C. Lorenzana, President and CEO of Cignal, is pleased with this recent development. “We would like to thank our indefatigable network of Cignal agents throughout the country and our loyal subscribers for making Cignal’s satellite or direct-to-home (DTH) technology become the driving force in the growth of the pay TV market in the country.”  Aside from leading the industry in terms of having the largest subscriber base, Cignal is also the pay-TV provider of choice for the country’s top housing developers, hospitality and tourism businesses and institutions.  “We are everywhere in the archipelago; providing Filipino families access to the best TV technology and programming available, and at costs that ordinary households can afford,” Mr. Lorenzana stressed.

Cignal prides itself in being the first company to offer a superior 100% digital Pay-TV service in the local market. Cignal’s advanced direct-to-home (DTH) satellite service allows customers to experience digital viewing clarity. In 2014, a study conducted by Nielsen Philippines in major cities all over the country showed that Cignal was the preferred pay TV provider (67% of respondents) among local and national cable pay TV providers, when it came to audio and video clarity”

Aside from this, Cignal is also the pioneer in offering built-in HD plans. Its capacity to provide a clear television resolution even in the remotest areas of the Philippine is something that other providers are still trying to achieve. Needless to say, the brand is incomparable when it comes to the aspects of image clarity, consistency of clarity, and the right balance of colors.

Furthermore, Cignal offers a variety of channels that suit the taste and lifestyle of viewers.

Disney, CNN, HBO, Cinemax, and NBA are just some of the shows that subscribers can enjoy in SD and HD versions. There are more exciting channels coming up including Bloomberg Television Philippines, the first 24/7 business news channel in the country and Sari-Sari, a Cignal and Viva collaboration, etc., to meet the TV-viewing preferences and interests of Filipinos of all age groups. Cignal’s HD channels’ stunning video quality is complemented with immersive sound experience thru Dolby Digital Surround System Technology. Bringing its subscribers to a whole new level of home entertainment.

“Beauty in a Bottle” Philippine TV Premiere this September 12 on Cinema One


The Antoinette Jadaone-helmed comedy-satire film, “Beauty in a Bottle” starring award-winning actresses Angelica Panganiban, Assunta de Rosi, and singer-actress Angeline Quinto is set to debut on Cinema One’s Blockbuster Sunday this September 6, 8PM.

“Beauty in a Bottle,” Jadaone’s second film last year prior to her Cinema One Originals hit, “That Thing Called Tadhana,” highlights the never-ending issue on female insecurities. The film chronicles the lives of Judith (Angeline Quinto), Vilma (Assunta de Rossi), and Estelle (Angelica Panganiban) – three women with different physical insecurities whose lives begin to intertwine when Vilma’s advertising agency searches for an endorser for a new beauty pill product named, “Beauty in a Bottle.”

In the film, the three women struggle with their insecurities in the midst of the “Beauty in a Bottle” craze and in the end realize how their lives were changed because of the effect of “Beauty in a Bottle” to them.

“Beauty in a Bottle” also stars Ellen Adarna, Bianca Manalo, Dimples Romana, Cai Cortez, Anna Luna, Carmi Martin, Tom Rodriguez, and Empress Shuck. The film also received positive reviews from critics, moviegoers, and netizens who described the film as ‘deceptively funny.’
