Solution to ‘No Back Ride’ Policy? Funny ‘Social Distancing’ Video Goes Viral

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.

Video of Kids Swimming at a Store’s Fountain Goes Viral

A video of kids swimming at a store’s water fountain goes viral, with netizens commenting how carefree kids are and how much fun they were having in that small water feature.

Kids Swim at a Store’s Fountain

It’s fun to swim at the beach, pool, river, or some other water body or feature, especially when the weather is so hot. Many of us don’t even mind traveling a long distance to reach these swimming spots to have a good time.

There are lots of fun places to swim in where you don’t have to pay an entrance fee to have a good time. For example, most public beaches in the Philippines are open for swimming without any payment involved.

But kids in Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental, have found another free water feature: a fountain outside a MINISO store! LOL

In a post that has gone viral on Facebook, netizen Veronica Buen shared a photo and video of some kids swimming at that small water fountain, having the time of their lives.

It’s obvious that these kids were having such a good time despite the fact that this water fountain could be dirty because it’s not meant for swimming – and it’s been open for months, without any chlorination as what swimming pools are supposed to have to cleanse them of harmful bacteria and other pathogens.

The kids’ identity is unknown, but it’s possible that they live in the streets and were likely just having fun in that water fountain. The waters of Dumaguete’s beautiful boulevard are actually just a few meters away from this fountain, but the kids chose this spot for swimming, instead.

Some netizens commented that the water was dirty, while others said that the kids should be allowed to swim there because they’re not bothering anyone, anyway.

Sinabawang Hotdog? Andrea Brillantes Goes Viral for Tasting Oil While Cooking in Music Video

Anong lasa ng cooking oil, Andrea?” netizens couldn’t help but jokingly ask actress Andrea Brillantes after she appears to taste the oil she used for cooking hotdogs in a music video, “Tahanan.”

Andrea Brillantes Tastes Cooking Oil

OPM singer Adie’s music video for “Tahanan” started off with a cliché scene of a man waking up in bed alone, then finding his partner cooking breakfast for him. She ruffles his hair and offers him a slice of sandwich.

It’s clear that she’s really just cooking some hotdogs (nothing wrong with that, of course).

But netizens found the next scene hilarious: Andrea’s character appears to taste the soup she’s cooking, saying “Sarap!” with rounded eyes – and everyone knew she was cooking hotdogs! Ooooops.

Do you taste the oil when frying something, then say it’s delicious? Of course, not!

So, netizens had a field day laughing at Andrea, but the actress happily went along, posting “sinabawang hotdog supremacy” on her social media account.

Why Did Andrea Taste the Cooking Oil?

The biggest question in everyone’s mind is why she tasted the cooking oil in the first place? But the music video’s director and producer, Kris Cazin, clarified that it was exactly what they wanted to happen.

Okay so nag viral tayo dahil sa sinabawang hotdog. It actually worked!” Kris happily announced.

I just thought it looks dumb so I went for it. If you think it’s funny and stupid, that’s the point!

He added that this isn’t about a gender role, but wants to point out that it’s important to show appreciation to your partner, even if they don’t really know how to cook – at least they tried to do it for you, right?

Don’t expect all women, jowa, asawa, etc na marunong magluto,” he said.

Ipagluluto ka parin niya kahit di siya marunong magluto. Show mo parin ang pagtingin mo sakanya, mahal mo parin siya despite mukha siyang ewan na umiinom ng sabaw ng hotdog.

Priest Stops Groom in Passionate “Kiss the Bride” Moment

A priest stops groom in a passionate “kiss the bride” moment that got netizens laughing and telling him the honeymoon isn’t done in church but reserved for later. LOL.

Priest Stops Groom in Hilarious Video

Not everyone’s a fan of the “kiss the bride” moment to seal the new couple’s wedding vows, but it’s an expected part of the ceremony.

Of course, everyone knows that the “kiss” in this portion of the ceremony is meant to be more of a customary peck or smack. After all, who would want to share a passionate kiss at the altar with everyone watching, huh?

Some couples are even too shy to kiss, just like a bride who irked a lot of people when she refused to kiss her groom! But many people also laughed at their video, saying that she’s really just a shy girl, a true “dalagang Pilipina”. Whew.

But netizens are having a good laugh once again at another wedding video, this time the opposite of the shy bride video.

The short clip shows the hilarious moment the groom kissed his bride after the priest directed him to do it. But he decided the small kiss isn’t enough and leaned in closer to give his bride a full kiss.

Everyone had a big laugh as the priest quickly stopped him from giving his bride a passionate kiss.

The bride and groom were only identified as Erica and Justine.

Netizens commented that the groom was definitely excited for the honeymoon, while the priest must have been shocked by this passionate groom. LOL.

Some netizens suggested that perhaps it’s their first kiss that’s why the groom was too excited. Whatever the case, it’s quite hilarious.
