After showcasing their world class shadow-play performance in ABS-CBN’s “Pilipinas Got Talent” (PGT), El Gamma Penumbra now embarks on a new stint as advocates of Philippine tourism through ABS-CBN Regional Network Group’s “iChoose” campaign.

The group's final performance on the show wherein they chose the song “Piliin Mo Ang Pilipinas” was widely shared on social networking sites, as netizens strongly endorsed El Gamma Penumbra to be part of our country’s tourism campaign.

In turn, Choose Philippines, coming from the success of their initial launch on “ASAP Rocks,” decided to tap the group for the promotion of its “iChoose” campaign, introducing a new music video and a micro-site that encourages every Filipino to contribute to the 7,107 reasons why people choose the Philippines.

As in the original music video, ABS-CBN’s Creative Communications Management got together with the creative people behind El Gamma Penumbra to discuss a level-up version of their performance on PGT. Two brainstorms, one rehearsal, one shooting, and countless days of editing later, the new music video of Choose Philippines was produced.

Recently on “ASAP 2012,” Choose Philippines again released the new version of the music video. Immediately after the launch, #elgamma and #choosephils became trending topics on social networking sites. Just days after the music video was aired, it already received a total number of 234,011 views on Youtube (as of 6pm February 27, 2012). The number of people who visited the micro-site and shared their reasons why they choose the Philippines doubled and is continuously adding digits.

The music video, produced for ABS-CBN RNG and Choose Philippines, is a collaboration of El Gamma Penumbra and ABS-CBN CCM led by in-house Director Paolo Ramos, Executive Producers Cidge Laxamana and Carla Payongayong, Post-production Editor Angelo Dayao, Motion Graphics Artist Alfie Landayan and CCM-Technical Supervisor Jimmy Porca under the supervision of CCM Creative Account Head Tina Barbin and CCM-VP Robert Labayen.

Share the fun, log on now to www.choosephils.com/ichoose. State the reason why people must choose the Philippines. The post can only be a simple sentence yet accompanied by a picturesque image of any of the Philippines' best—that can be a place, food, service, event and even admirable Pinoy values.

Things just got nastier and more exciting in “Pinoy Big Brother Unlimited” with the entry of M6, or the six former housemates tasked to bring out the current season’s housemates’ true colors and to help the public decide on who deserves to be the program’s Big Winner.

After Big Brother openly expressed his dissatisfaction with the housemates who seem undetermined to enter the Big Four, he sought help from the M6 housemates who are known to have assertive personalities. Franzen Fajardo, Baron Geisler, Beauty Gonzalez, Rica Paras, and “PBB Unlimited” evictees Kigoy and Luz are expected to spice things up inside the house and test the current housemates.

It was only a matter of time before Paco was able to successfully infuriate some of the housemates to fulfill his task as a house player. Viewers even favored his performance, as determined by last week’s overnight voting that revealed they still wanted him to stay in the house.

Meanwhile, this week’s nominees for eviction are Divine, Kevin, and Seiichi, who received the most number of votes from the housemates who thought the three were pretentious.

Deniesse, on the other hand, was granted a forced eviction and got kicked out of the house last Saturday (Feb 25) for asking Melai of the public’s perception of her and for whispering to Divine, both of which are grave violations of Big Brother’s house rules.

Don’t miss the exciting developments in “Pinoy Big Brother UnliDay” with Bianca Gonzalez weekdays after “Angelito: Batang Ama” in Kapamilya Gold and in “Pinoy Big Brother UnliNight” with Toni Gonzaga weeknights after “Budoy” in Primetime Bida. Also stay tuned to “PBB Unlimited Updates” with Robi Domingo during “Angelito: Batang Ama” and “E-Boy” on ABS-CBN. For the program’s updates, follow his Secretary on Twitter at @OfficialPBB4 or like.

It drew a remarkable following of 275,593 registered users in its first three months and reached up to 15 million page views in the same time period.

DZMM TeleRadyo, on the other hand, was recognized for its achievements in expanding its viewership, creating innovative approaches for its advertisers that led to higher ad revenues for the station, and increasing subscription revenues by getting more cable TV operators to carry the station nationwide.

It also engaged its listeners and provided an avenue for its DJ’s to interact with them during the awarding event.

ABS-CBN bagged the most number of Anvil awards among TV networks with four recognitions as compared to GMA’s three and TV5’s one.
