Ph ‘more Fun’ For Katy Perry In Music Video

Its pretty eh. Maybe somebody saw a pretty picture, he said. Its no secret that when Katy Perry came to Philippines, she fell in love with our country. I wouldnt be surprised if she made the choice (herself). But I do not know that for a fact, he said. Perry performed in the Philippines in January 2012. Jimenez said he now expected other international artists to also feature the Philippines in their videos. Thats not the last. We encourage all our friends around the world to feature the Philippines in a good light, he said. Jimenez also expressed delight over the increasing number of tourist arrivals in the country. Despite the Philippines tiff with China, he said Chinese tourists continued to flock to the country because they knew how to draw the line between friendship and political disagreements. The number of Chinese visitors has risen by 48.58 percent since January. The situation has very much improved. Tourism is not politics. Everyone is being very mature about it. Im happy that it is healthy and stable. In fact its growing, Jimenez said.

Can Katy Perry Sell Microsoft’s Nokia Lumia Smartphone?

The video itself is charming enough, I suppose, in all its gaudy, cheesiness. Perry crashes on an island and soon transforms into a female Tarzan, replete with leopard skin bikini. She roars at tigers and swings around on vines. The music isnt my style, and Ive never really understood the Katy Perry phenomenon to be honest. Id blame it on my ageat 32 I often shake my heads and mutter under my breath: Kids these days! But Im sure I wouldnt have understood Katy Perrty ten or fifteen years ago. Thats neither here nor there. Her video has stacked up nearly 20 million views on YouTube, and thats 20 million (or so) pairs of eyes getting a good long look at a Lumia. Some of these viewers will wonder what the phone is; others will instantly want one. Good news for Microsoft Microsoft , then, given the software giants recent announcement. The Windows Phone maker will purchase Nokias device business for a total of around $7B, and the more top-tier product placement they can manage the better. It may not be enough, of course. Windows Phone continues to struggle to compete with Android and Apple Apple s iOS. (On a side note, the new colorful lineup of Apple iPhones is actually somewhat reminiscent of the Lumia line, with its bright reds and yellows.) Still, its great advertising for Microsoft and great advertising is exactly what the company needs if they want to make their Nokia purchase more than just a lost cause.
