Ads in Motion, Part II

The Manila Light Rail Transit (LRT) Line 2 or the purple line that snakes its way along Aurora Boulevard from Recto to Santolan stations has been my primary mode of transportation for 15 months. As such, I am quite familiar to the changes in the outer appearance of the trains. These changes are the wrap ads that grace the front and sides of the coaches of LRT Line 2. These ads in motion make waiting for the trains a little more enjoyable. I miss the cool blue of the Rexona ad a cycle ago, but the anticipation for the new LRT Line 2 wrap ads more than makes up for it. 

I took the photos that follow while waiting for the trains to arrive with the exception of the elusive Ghostbusters ads, which I purposely waited on Monday. Luckily, it arrived less than 30 seconds after I had stepped out of the train on the opposite ramp. 

The LRT Line 2 train without the wrap ads looks plain and lonely.

The first time I posted the “Taste the Feeling” Coke ad from last cycle, I failed to take a proper photo of it. Now I have the whole imperative sentence and the logo. In one photo. Success!

This Talk N’ Text LRT Line 2 ad replaces Coke in the “Almost There, But not Quite” Award. The whole line says, “It’s a Tropa Thing” but it is too long so I missed letter “G”.
