Yesterday, during the final presidential debates, Mar Roxas came face to face with one of the most fearsome figures in Philippine politics, Miriam Defensor-Santiago. She inquired about his background, specifically how he'll be able to make himself a viable president for a country that's as socially polarized as the Philippines. Mar, a scion of the Roxas clan in Capiz and a Wharton graduate, has been criticized for his elitist background.

Mar had a memorable answer, drawn from a Batman movie:  “As Batman said, 'It’s not important how you came into this world. What’s important is what you did with your life,' and my life over the last 20 years has been a public record."

Filipinos being Filipinos didn't miss the chance to extract a few extra laughs from the situation. Yesterday, a certain "juancarloang" uploaded a clip from Batman Begins, and dubbed over Batman's voice with the quote from Mar himself.

Look:

Before you react to the shoddy dubbing, know that Batman's dialogue in the scene actually is: "It's not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me." Although Mr. Palengke got the message right, we only give him half the nerd point.
