GMA Sponsor Bumpers (partially found Filipino sponsorship bumpers of GMA Network; 2003-2006)
After the rebrand of GMA Network in 2002, graphics for sponsor bumpers are made. These are used for advertising the sponsors of the said show. The soundtrack used for the sponsor bumpers is American Epic.
It is said that there were four types of sponsor bumpers according to the show:
Green version - Entertainment shows
Blue version - News and Public Affairs shows
Red Version - Cartoon/anime shows
Pink version - Drama shows
In 2006, the sponsor bumper graphic changed which is used until today while the American Epic soundtrack was used until April 2008 when it was changed to a soundtrack GMA Network made themselves.
Availability[edit | edit source]
The 2006-present sponsor bumpers were more abundant while the 2003-2006 version was rarer. Following the rise of sponsor bumpers in 2021, several 2003-2006 sponsor bumpers were found by several users especially Gabriel Ansaldo & MetricArchives along with the then-lost 2006 sponsor bumpers. A lot of them are hiding in plain sight. A full version of the 2003-2006 graphic didn't resurface until June 20, 2021, when the same user Gabriel Ansaldo found a full Master Showman sponsor bumper that was uploaded in 2008.
On January 6, 2022, couple Miriam Quiambao-Roberto and Ardy Roberto uploaded a Magpakailanman episode featuring Miriam Quiambao's life story. Coincidentally, a Magpakailanman 2003-2006 sponsor bumper was in the video, albeit cut. The graphic was also colored in pink, the first known pink-colored sponsor bumper to ever resurface. On May 26, 2022, a full sponsor bumper of SOP was found by Lloyds Tvc And CBB Official Youtube Channel, making it the second full sponsor bumper with the 2003-2006 graphic that has been found.
