As much as the electorate is sick and tired of cheap tricks and superficial campaign methods, most local politicians can't help but resort to these shoddy attempts at self-promotion.
One may surmise that elections are not just popularity contests anymore, but in every intelligent suffragist, there are 10 voters casting their ballots for someone who solely had left a lasting impression on them, no matter how frivolous a candidate's antics were.
For the sake of a much more educated decision-making and responsible voting, FHM presents "Things Politicos Do For Votes," a unique election series that will put the spotlight on the unnecessary absurdities Filipino politicians shamelessly do during the campaign period. This is gonna be fun!
What is it with (awkward) dancing that politicians can't get enough of?
Yes, the man who played Asiong Salonga (in Manila Kingpin), Emilio Aguinaldo (El Presidente), Arturo Porcuna (Boy Golden), Lieutenant Jamal (Magnum Muslim .357), and all those supporting roles in old action movies that highlighted his vexing laugh.
The man who vowed to produce at least one action film a year to create jobs in the industry is seen keeping step with his younger backup dancers to the tune of Silentó's "Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)."
You have to watch it to believe it:
You have to admit, ER looks springy for a 52-year-old. Maybe Uncle Erap has revealed to him where his fountain of youth is...
