Was monitoring the Twitter stream of various politicians vying for the Philippine Presidential Elections, when I came across a tweet of @giboteodoro connected to the music used in his TVC.
I read Dennis Garcia’s post in Facebook.
I was recently tasked to score the music for a Gibo Teodoro TV material. Given a free hand to use whatever music (existing or original) I want… I opted to go OPM.
It made me curious about what the deal was, so I looked around YouTube and found this:
UPDATE: I am no longer showing that TVC, because according to a comment posted by Reynz (ReynaElena.com) over at BarrioSiete.com, Rico Blanco has “not licensed the use of the composition to any political ad campaign.”

You can read the comments posted in YT about the Gibo Teodoro “Posible” TVC.
Some people commented that the one who sang in the TVC tried to sound like Rico Blanco. So I searched for Rivermaya’s “Posible” and found this:
Now that we’re viewing videos of athletes, did you know that the national martial art of the Philippines is now arnis? (See Arroyo signs law making ‘arnis’ national martial art)
Anyway, this gave me a chance to once again appreciate OPM on a Saturday afternoon.
