Following the controversial "Sights" campaign of the Department of Tourism, a traveler created a one-minute video promoting the Philippines.

What makes his video special? He only spent $100, or roughly P5,000 for his video.

Nas Daily is known for uploading one-minute videos everyday on his Facebook account.

In a video he uploaded on Saturday, Nas talked about governments spending huge amounts of money on ad campaigns that are just "sh*tty copies of other videos."

"This happened in the Philippines. So I decided in New York as a one-man team to make the best video about the Philippines in 30 seconds," he said.

The video showed Filipinos from different parts of the world, as well as in the Philippines.

"I have (been to the Philippines) and the only thing I saw was love. They will love partying with you, hosting you and feeding you. They will love showing you around their mountains, their beaches and their cities," Nas said.

He also made a reference to the "Sights" campaign, which featured a blind tourist.

"You can be blind and see how there is more love in the Philippines. But if you think the Philippines is just another island, then you must be blind," Nas said.

The DOT last week pulled out an international ad campaign after less than a week due to "glaring similarities" with one used in South Africa.
