Having a problem with the ‘no back ride’ policy? One couple found a hilarious solution to the ‘social distancing’ problem that’s got a lot of netizens laughing – and the video quickly went viral!
‘Social Distancing’ on a Motorcycle
In the Philippines, the ‘no back ride’ policy was imposed to ensure that there will be ‘social distancing’ to minimize, even stop, the rapid spread of COVID-19. Since the back rider can’t obviously sit 1m away from the driver, motorcycles can only be used by one person.
This poses a problem to many families, particularly because the motorcycle is their primary means of transportation to go to work, buy groceries, and other activities. Many Filipinos just can’t afford to buy a car and public transport options are limited at their area.
Funny Solution to ‘No Back Ride’ Policy
A video shared by Rodel Manalo drew laughs from netizens as it shows a woman riding on an aluminum basin that’s being pulled by a man on a motorcycle. The hilarious video has gained over 1.1 million views, with many netizens feeling amused over their antics.
At first glance, you might not see something wrong (or crazy?) with the man in the video who was just driving his motorcycle while wearing the prescribed helmet. He also had a masked on and didn’t have a back ride.
The guy wouldn’t have a problem passing through the checkpoint, but as the video continued, it was clear that he’s going to be in big trouble! Riding on an aluminum basin, a woman is clearly following ‘social distancing’ protocols but the land transportation office won’t be so happy with his modified ride.
Is This Safe?
While this might just be a joke video that was done for laughs, authorities warn people not to copy this setup. In reality, the ‘rider’ of the aluminum basin faces a lot of dangers. She could get hit by passing vehicles who might not notice her riding that low or she could be flung far as the motorcycle takes a turn on the road.
Other netizens also pointed out that the basin would easily heat up with friction. Aside from getting burns, the woman could eventually get scrapes from the road as the basin develops holes.
But for the sake of laughs, this one is definitely gold! Perfect solution to the ‘no back ride’ policy, huh? Check out this video:
Bawal man ang mag backride sa motor, ingun anion nalang… okeey keyoo…

After all, there was nothing extraordinary about her cleaning hacks – well, she didn’t even have any new cleaning hacks to offer!
But even with that somewhat nonsensical video going viral, yet another totally simple is set to follow its viral success. This time. AJ Raval shared a video while she’s doing a car wash.
Again, netizens might ask what’s so special about doing a car wash that it would become so viral, yet watching this video will give you the answers to that question:
So, did you now get why this car wash video by AJ Raval (and the one with the bedroom cleanup) is set to go viral soon?
As you have seen in the video, this young woman cleaned a Ford truck. At the start of the clip, AJ admits that she doesn’t know how to properly do a car wash.
She joked that she has to do a quick video in case her dad catches her messing with his car which is now being used by her sibling. She added that it’s her first time to do a car wash, but netizens (well, the guys for sure) quickly commented on the video that she’s doing the right thing.
What do you think of this car wash video?

Manila Bay Looks Like Boracay in This ‘Dolomite Update’ Video by a Vlogger
A portion of the Manila Bay now looks like Boracay in a video made by a vlogger to update people about the controversial dolomite sand ‘dumped’ on that spot.
Manila Bay Looks Like Boracay
A lot of people have so many bad things to say about the dolomite placed at the Manila Bay, with clamors to divert the funds for other useful things such as vaccines and food for the poor.
Others are saying that the dolomite ‘dumped’ on that spot is useless and does nothing to make the place look any good.
But a video update by vlogger Junriel Llander shows that these naysayers are wrong. Yes, this dolomite project might be expensive but it has made the place look great!
Gone are the trash that used to cover this area. The usually murky waters and the dirty sand have been transformed into a piece of paradise that you could only see in areas with white sand beaches, such as the world-famous Boracay Island.
On May 24, 2021, Llander went to the spot with the dolomite sand to take a video of what’s happening at this area. There were a number of workers at Phase 1 Beach Front, all busy with keeping this place looking great.
Though the heavy equipment and the busy thoroughfare at the background betray the location, this place still managed to look like a slice of Boracay from some angles.
Llander credits the development to the ‘probinsyano’ president, Pres. Rodrigo Duterte who was able to make this place look beautiful.
No matter how bashers might say bad things about this spot, those who have actually gone to the area are saying that this spot at the Manila Bay certainly looks so much better than the dirty, grimy, garbage-filled dump it used to be!
Watch the video here:
Dolomite is a type of ornamental limestone rich in magnesium and calcium carbonate. Because of its white color, crushed dolomite could be mistaken for white sand. The sands at the beaches all over the world are mostly made up of quartz and feldspar.

AJ Raval’s Bedroom Cleanup Video
These days, there are so many celebrities who are sharing stuff about their day-to-day lives on social media, creating vlogs for their followers to watch. So many are creating prank videos or are doing good deeds on social media, with netizens saying that they are just doing that for the likes and views.
But there are also those who go viral even without doing these “do good” stuff! Just like AJ Raval who recently went viral with her bedroom cleanup video.
In less than a week, the nearly 23-minute clip has gained over 2.1 million views – and we’re quite sure that 90% of those views are from guys, for obvious reasons.
But the video had such a simple title, “Cleaning My Bedroom.” You would have thought that it would gain a maximum of 10 views, huh?
That certainly means that AJ knows how to keep things interesting in her video to keep the people watching.
Check this out:
As you can see in the clip, it’s obvious that there’s really nothing amazing or new about the bedroom cleanup that AJ was doing. Everyone’s doing right about the same thing from time to time, huh?
But her outfit in the video and the way she makes the chores appear to be so much fun made people continue watching until the very end. That’s certainly something, considering that the video is nearly 23 minutes long.
Did you watch it to the end?
Who is AJ Raval?
AJ Raval is the daughter of Jeric Raval. The young star admitted in past interviews that her dad isn’t really supportive of the things she’s doing on social media and in her movies! Guess all dads will always feel that way, huh?
