Uratex Monoblock’s “Bawal ang Marupok” Campaign Returns with a Hilarious Bang in “Sulyap” Ad

Uratex Monoblock, the trusted Filipino plastic furniture brand in the market, amplifies its “Bawal ang Marupok” campaign with a hilarious bang reflecting Filipino values of resilience amidst challenges, facing it with a touch of humor, and finding joy within the struggle. 

The landmark initiative “Bawal Ang Marupok” positions Uratex Monoblock as both a trailblazer and a standard of its own, with Uratex Monoblock receiving local certifications from the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) and the Bureau of Philippine Standards (DTI-BPS), and the only brand to achieve Level 5 certification from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the highest plastic furniture standard in the country. The campaign was launched last year as part of the brand’s 30th anniversary. 

In its recent short video advertisement, viewers are transported into a familiar scenario where a young girl, seated on a Uratex Monoblock, is seen admiring her crush from afar. Despite the girl’s funny and over-the-top antics and reactions, the Monoblock remains intact. The girl may have fallen, but the Uratex Monoblock remains firm and reliable, ready to support in any situation—a glaring testament to its durability, quality, and strength, even in the most playful of situations.

“For over 30 years, Uratex Monoblock has continued its promise of providing quality comfort to Filipino homes. Our distinctions reflect our unwavering commitment to excellence and customer satisfaction, which caters to our customers’ comfort and peace of mind. With this, our products have surpassed a series of tests, including stress and drop testing, and ergonomic assessments, to ensure the brand's promise,” said Mr. Dindo Medina, Business Unit Director of Uratex Monoblock.

Similar to the girl in the video, we encounter daily scenarios that are often seen as 'marupok' or fragile. Through this campaign, we are reminded to be wise and prioritize the quality and safety that Uratex Monoblock guarantees in every piece. Investing in these sturdy, quality home furniture items is essential to ensure the safety and comfort of your loved ones, backed by a safety seal and reliable seat load capacity. In addition to the certifications, Uratex Monoblock can withstand up to 200 kilograms of weight, equivalent to the weight of three full-grown adults.

Uratex Monoblock offers a diverse range of home essentials that are carefully crafted, ensuring that the brand caters to various consumer preferences and home aesthetics. With common essentials like the 101 Classic, Americana, and Sofie Chair, they offer traditional monoblock chairs found in conventional Filipino households, ensuring that each chair not only retains its familiar appeal, but also upholds Uratex’s standards.

On the other hand, they have a more trendy line that boasts innovative and contemporary designs such as the Olympia Armchair, Charlotte Bistro, and Marciana chair, seamlessly blending functionality and aesthetics and adding a touch of elegance and chicness to every living space.

This shared value of resilience forms the cornerstone of Uratex Monoblock's commitment to delivering products that withstand the test of time, ensuring that every piece enhances the comfort and quality of life for consumers, no matter the decade.

“With a longstanding presence in Filipino homes, Uratex Monoblock reflects the resilience and adaptability ingrained in Filipino culture. Just as Filipinos navigate life's challenges with determination and grace, Uratex products embody durability and longevity, making them enduring companions for generations to come,” shared Mr. Medina.

The “Sulyap” ad is just the first of the many exciting executions the campaign has in store for its renewed “Bawal Ang Marupok” campaign, showcasing not only Uratex’s superior products but also the indomitable Filipino spirit.

BSS (SEVENTEEN) Showcases the AI Eraser capabilities using the OPPO Reno11 F 5G

 The OPPO AI Eraser feature is now available for all OPPO Reno11 Pro, OPPO Reno11, and OPPO Reno11 F devices

AI Eraser empowers all OPPO Reno11 Series users with advanced generative AI photo editing tools and flagship experiences

BSS, the subunit of the renowned South Korean boy band SEVENTEEN as well as the newest OPPO Reno Experts, have sprung into action to showcase the capabilities of OPPO’s newly rolled out AI Eraser.

The free-to-use tool was recently rolled out to its OPPO Reno11 Series, which includes the OPPO Reno11 Pro, OPPO Reno11, and OPPO Reno11 F. It allows OPPO Reno11 Series users to easily remove objects from photos by circling them.

As a dynamic and youthful boy group who revel in self-expression, BSS (SEVENTEEN) members SEUNGKWAN, DK and HOSHI continuously create content and capture candid moments on the go. There are times, however, when a precious moment captured contains an unwanted object or background that would otherwise have resulted in the perfect shot, such as the group picture (above) with an unwanted light stand in the background.

With AI Eraser, this can easily be fixed in a flash. All they did was simply circle the unwanted light stand, and the OPPO Reno11 Series’ generative AI intelligently removed it, generating natural-looking content to fill the space. The result is the perfect composition that exactly matched their vision.

AI Eraser for the OPPO Reno11 Series is capable of accurately recognising objects from over 120 categories, including people, pets, trees, buildings, and flowers. It uses advanced generative AI to allow for class-leading, seamless edits to remove objects in the best way possible, creating natural-looking photos as a result.

OPPO Reno11 Series users can remove an unwanted object in an almost-perfect picture instantly.

AI Eraser is easy and convenient to use. Here’s a step-by-step guide:

STEP 1: Find a picture that is almost perfect

STEP 2: Tap Edit, followed by AI Eraser

STEP 3: Use Smart Lasso to draw around object, or use Paint Over to draw over an object

STEP 4: Watch the object disappear before your eyes as AI Eraser uses generative AI to intelligently fill in the blanks, so you can enjoy your perfect picture

More AI Eraser features

Smart Lasso and Paint Over are two available features under AI Eraser. Smart Lasso allows users to easily encircle unwanted subjects, making it a highly recommended feature for users who struggle with precision drawing or circling.

Paint Over serves as a valuable complement to Smart Lasso, particularly when an object in the image contains an area that users would prefer not to remove. Both features come with a slider option to adjust the stroke size for even more precise object removal.

While many external smartphones within the OPPO Reno11 Series’ price range offer object removal tools, they tend to produce results that appear noticeably edited, creating unnatural-looking elements.

“Reno11 Series is the first smartphone line at its price to feature such advanced generative AI image editing, and demonstrates OPPO’s commitment to enrich everyday experiences through technology for everyone,” said Leon Wang, Director of Reno Series Product Planning Development.

Reno11 Series users in Phiippines can experience AI Eraser via an OTA update.
