Now, an inside source tells me that an open invitation has been given to advertisers and copy writers around the country asking them to "donate" ideas as to what the new slogan can be. A lot of people wants to simply append an adjective in front of 'Philippines' such as: Amazing Thailand or Incredible India. Some even wanted to tap Pacquiao's continuing popularity (Pacquiao Philippines? Pow Philppines!).
Whatever they decide to choose, I agree that Wow Philippines is indeed outdated and I think that the foreigners also don't get the humor behind that idea. The tourism of Philippines should be focused on and I'm glad that the Department of Tourism realized the need to change the slogan. Although the first attempt was an ultimate fail, I hope that someone comes up with a killer idea soon without any future intention of claiming it as their intellectual property (except for bragging rights).
