It was really nice to know that Nips brand still remains in the market after all these years, bringing back all the childhood memories. That’s eating and playing this colorful candy-coated chocolate especially its famous jingle. Oh! now I’m going to sing… Wanna see what happen in a bag of Nips, what goes on before they touched my lips and make a rainbow(chocolate Nips)… and so on. 🙂

Back to the Nips PopQuest 2015. During the colorful festivity, Nips awarded special prizes to the winners of the HaNIPS music video-making contest.

The music video-making contest is Nips’ way to add a twist to its well-known jingle. The contest, in partnership with local music channel MYX, engaged the creativity of today’s youth to come up with their interpretation of the jingle and turn it into a music video.

Kharleigh Macapagal, took home the grand prize worth P100,000 and was awarded as  PinakaHaNips (best overall music video). She created a video of a quiet day at the beach with nature doing its own magic, unleashing its own array of colors.(Please see Kharleigh music video entry below)

“I just focused on the personality of Nips and how it brings color to any situation anytime, anywhere,” said Macapagal. “And even the whole process of brainstorming and producing the video and jingle, it was really like Nips – pure, unadulterated fun with my siblings and cousins who helped me get things done.”

Kharleigh’s entry entitled “Rainbow Connection” also won P50,000 for bagging the HaNIPS with Nips (best use of Nips products) and HaNIPS sa video (best in video execution) special awards.

A close contender to the PinakaHaNips video was “Let’s Make a Rainbow” from aspiring filmmaker Alvin Cabalhug. His video and jingle focused on highlighting the teeming love and friendship seen when sharing a bag of Nips. Cabalhug received P50,000 for winning the HaNIPs sa Song (best in musical score) and HaNIPS sa lyrics (best in lyrics) special awards.

“I am really grateful that my entry is being recognized. Song-writing and filmmaking are really my hobbies, and these have been great avenues for me to showcase my skills,” said Cabalhug.
