One thing that ABS-CBN pioneered is the production of grand station IDs. And the viewing public started to get excited not just on their favorite TV programs but on these fabulous presentation as well. Who would be able to forget the very soothing Sukob Na and heart pinching Star ng Pasko? :) And in the tradition of those memorable productions, ABS-CBN has finally unveiled its newest station ID, their summer campaign "Pinoy Summer is Da Best Forever"!
Sarah Geronimo and Gerald Anderson literally play good music together as the two sing this year’s theme song for the much-awaited summer station ID of ABS-CBN with the theme “Pinoy Summer, Da Best Forever.
Sarah and Gerald, together with the biggest and brightest Kapamilya personalities, will show the true colors behind Pinoy summer and share the amazing reasons why it is the ultimate summer destination for tourists and fellow kababayan.
ABS-CBN head of Creative Communications Robert Labayen said the network believes that the beauty of summer in the Philippines is not only seen through its natural resources but it is most evident in its people.
“This year’s summer station ID paints a picture of how Filipinos are proud of their heritage and values as reflected in our very own festivals. Bayanihan, camaraderie, unity, respect, and love for one’s self are the prime Filipino values highlighted. Color and joy spread like summer heat, awakening the festivities and making celebrations more alive,” he said.
This year’s summer station ID will show a rainbow brightening in the sky as a group of festival dancers offers a free ride to Angelica Panganiban, Zanjoe Marudo, John Prats, and Melai Cantiveros, Pooh, and Jason Gainza.

For me, the themesong may not be as impactful as ABS-CBN's previous stations IDs Sukob Na and Star ng Pasko (and perhaps because ABS-CBN Regional TV's Piliin Mo Ang Pilipinas has become an A1 and landmark local tourism plug for me) but the visual story telling is a wonderful treat that every viewer can enjoy. And with that, Kapamilyas will get hooked every day and night, not just with their favorite teleseryes but this time, with a new station ID dubbed as Pinoy Summer is Da Best Forever. :)
