ABS-CBN’s innovative “Punch ng Bayan” of its Isang Bayan Para Kay Pacman campaign has gone full bore in just its first week in its efforts to spur the People’s Champion to bring home more glory for the country.
The number has been staggering in terms of how many punches the campaign has gathered so far. The punch meter has amounted to 18,735,253 punches as of 1PM, Friday.
According to ABS-CBN Sports head Dino Laurena, “The campaign’s aim is to rally everyone to be one for Manny. We want to show the world that behind every Pacquiao punch is the strength of the Filipino people. For 20 years he fought for us, it’s time we give back and support him.”
Even popular Kapamilya stars have thrown their support for Manny Pacquiao as they mimicked one of his glaring habits: pounding his fists together, twice, before lunging for a jaw-breaking left straights or punishing body blows.
“Everyone can show their support for Manny Pacquiao by using #OneForPacman hashtag for every tweet or post in Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, or they can have fun with the punching bag at the website oneforpacman.abs-cbn.com.
Or text ONEFORPACMAN using ABS-CBNmobile,” he added.
The Kapamilya network believes that for every punch tallied, Manny Pacquiao is inspired more knowing that his fellow Filipinos are one with him in his fight.
