Station idents of ABS-CBN, PTV, 5, GMA, FBN and IBC featured but hopefully nominated as best TV station of the year on PMPC Star Awards.

The "Please Pray the Rosary" is a Philippine Roman Catholic advocacy commissioned by Fr. Patrick Peyton, CSC of the Family Rosary Crusade. The station ID is used in ABC-5 (now known as 5) before the start of every program from February 21, 1992 until January 4, 2004 and later on all radio stations.

It consists of the Virgin Mary suddenly appearing and gradually zooming out in the screen with an ominous choir singing in the background with the Blessed Mother saying "I ask every family: 'Please, pray the Rosary' ". When Mary says the latter part, (i.e. Please, pray the Rosary) the said phrase appears with Mama Mary's signature on the bottom right of the phrase on the screen. It then shifts to a male voice saying "The family that prays together, stays together" which is a motto originated by Fr. Patrick Peyton with the bottom part of the Rosary in the very right corner of the screen.

Medium to low (none for Filipino Catholics who are used to the commercial)- For most Filipinos (since majority of them are Roman Catholics), the sudden appearance of the Virgin Mary in the commercial is not really startling, and her voice and appearance is mostly loving and sweet. The loud ominous choir takes the effect behind the scare of the commercial. But when it comes to the male voice, the scare factor lessens since the ominous choir simply just hums until the end of the commercial.

The image of the Virgin Mary used in the commercial is based from Our Lady of Medjugorje. There is another variation of the commercial where the Virgin Mary suddenly fades in and Her face color suddenly changes from blue to orange. The voice of the Blessed Mother was lent by Lydia Sison, a long time friend of Fr. Patrick Peyton and the male annotation was made by Jess Decolongon.
