Last Sunday, December 7, a photo of DILG Secretary Mar Roxas falling off his motorcycle while inspecting the damage caused by Typhoon Ruby in Samar made the web rounds.
And since he's one of social media's favorite whipping boys political figures, it didn't take long for his little bike spill to go viral:

sana ok yung motor, at sana walang gasgas para magamit pa! kawawa naman ang motor kasi! @rapplerdotcom— Dyosa Avesa Pirena (@avesapirena) December 7, 2014
While Sec. Roxas earned a mixed bag of reactions for his mishap, we here at FHM HQ think there's more to this blunder than meets the eye. For all we know dear old Mar could have been...
Imagining he was racing against Anakin's podracer
Practicing his drifting skills
Visualizing the final lap of the MotoGP Grand Prix
Leading a motocross race
Auditioning for the next Motortrade commercial
Trying to guard Kyrie Irving
Emulating Evil Knievel
Joining the Masked Rider brigade
Chasing a riding-in-tandem
Trying to avoid a cat
Keep on rolling, Sec. Mar. But wear a helmet next time, mkay?
