The Scandalous Wazzup Pilipinas Iconic Shout-Out!

Wazzup Pilipinas!

So we got a report from a reliable source that a writer for Rappler and (or was it the printed newspaper) did not like it when we asked some people to do the Wazzup Pilipinas iconic shout-out at an event we attended

We don't really care because the people we ask to do the shout-out, LOVE it! We get a lot of smiles and laughter everytime we get to do the shout-out with them. Who do we listen to? Of course, the people we interview.

We even get requests from people to let them do the shout-out even before we get the chance to ask them. That's how they adore the shout-out. Why because it makes them part of the Wazzup Pilipinas overloaded experience. An opportunity to be in a video where they proudly call out our brand.

We were once approached by a top official from the Department of Tourism and commended us with "Ang galing!" A publication owner and editor even comnented with "kakaiba" and said we are doing the future of media interviews.  A publicist even asked us to do it with their VIPs. The Marketing peeps of companies eagerly joined in to do the shout-out, and another online publication emulated our style after witnessing how we do it at an event where both of us were invited to attend. 

"Wala pong harangan ng style at diskarte." Respect each other's craft. We're not unique in doing shout-outs, so we were surprised of the reaction of this so called writer.

It should never be our fault if our shout-out was heard while they were interviewing. Just as how we patiently wait for our turn when trad media get first dibs on the interview opportunities even when they arrived late.

Kami ba ay umaangal kapag binibigyan ng priority ang trad media to interview the VIPs? Pero kadalasan umaalis naman sila agad dahil ang habol lang ay yung celebrity or VIP interview at di pinapansin halos yung actual event. Most of the time blurred o di pa pinapakita yung actual brands. At ang interviews pa nila ay walang kinalaman sa event, product or service na endorsed ng celebrity.

Members of trad media have to accept the reality that online media or bloggers are here to stay and even dominate the scene (notice how trad media even comes out with news that originated from online or the Internet) if only provided with the same financial budget or influence brought about by the "big" people who run trad media outfits. We know they prioritize business and their profits first since they do rarely come out with news that attacks their sponsors, investors or advertisers. Or they angle their stories to not directly affect their "friends" from different industries.
Thus, it is better to work with and not against bloggers, or vloggers. People prefer to hear the news from reliable sources and not from those burdened with avoiding to touch sensitive issues surrounding their clients.

Please do not try to make bloggers follow the same rules as trad media. Otherwise, we won't be different anymore. It is our creativity and uniqueness that make us stand out among the rest. It is our imperfections that make us more real. Belueve it or not, It is our wrong grammar, our low quality photos, our lack of access to special events limited to trad media, which makes us more credible reflections of what's really happening among the common people. We don't mind if some hate us as long as there are many who love us.

  1. I want to use this opportunity I have to say a big thanks to Dr Great for getting back my ex husband. I'm Linda Gibson from USA, after 7 years of marriage my husband left me for another woman I did whatever I could to get him back but all I did was in vain I was sad, but I didn't lose hope of getting him back because I had faith in God. So I search online on how to get my husband back, and I came across a post of Dr Great of how he helped a lady to get back her ex I felt I should give him a try, I contacted him and told him the pain I was going through, he told me what to do and I did it then he casted a love spell for me 48 hours later my husband called me and told me he is sorry for what he did and that he misses me very much later that day he came back home and he hugged me and that how our relationship became stronger. For the marvelous things Dr Great has done for me it will be unfair for me no to let the whole world know that such a powerful spell caster do live. If you want to get back your ex fast email Dr Great at
