Free Motorola advertising

Driving along Agdao this afternoon and caught sight of this jeepney. Despite the minor risk of accident, just had to snap a photo with my Nokia 6233i.

Ordinarily, jeepney art is a mish-mash of various pictures and logos, but the artist of this piece of work really had his thing together. It's Motorola through and through.

And the funny thing is: I don't think Motorola paid him a cent for this piece of advertising.

If you look closer, though, you'll see that the Motorola logo looks a little off. Other than that, it does look pretty convincing. From the corner of my eye, I saw the Motorola ad with people on the side of the jeepney, too.

Now, if for some reason some humorless Motorola pencil pusher wants to send a cease-and-desist letter: I'm sorry, I can't help you. I didn't stop to ask the jeepney driver his name and address.


  1. Haha! That is a pretty jeep. Yellow. How flashy. :) And Motorola should be paying the guy, not sending cease and desist letters.

  2. You'll probably be disappointed to know that this jeepney likely IS sponsored by Motorola. :p They've been having some kind of promo where people can get free rides.

    See here:

  3. Hi, Mike: cool! Didn't know that. Now I have to go and see if the jeeps actually do give people free rides.

    Hi, Jute: Cebu still has the best examples of airbrushed jeepney art that I've seen.

    Thanks both for visiting.

  4. how about this one?

    there's also that motorola jeepney here in makati aside from the coke :)

  5. Oh, I saw something like this yesterday at Elizabeth Mall. Apparently, it's being used as a shuttle service for Citilink passengers here in Cebu. I was quite surprised and I remembered your post about it. Yeah, just thought you should know. ^.^
