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.

Councilor Fakes Getting Caught by Cops for Sweet Proposal That Surprised His GF

A councilor fakes getting caught by cops for a sweet proposal that surprised his girlfriend. And we can also call him the best actor, huh?

Fake Investigation

When cops arrived at the house of City Councilor Vinchy Aggabao of Santiago City, Cagayan Valley, Philippines, he and his family were puzzled why he was being investigated. The cop said he’s from “the region” and that they have to investigate the councilor’s vehicle after it was involved in something the previous night.

The cop also looked for the councilor’s wife (his girlfriend, actually), Irene, to inform her that they would have to pick up Vinchy for questioning. They also insist on checking his car. Vinchy agreed, but with anger in his voice. How dare these cops accuse him of something? LOL. But it’s all just drama, actually…

To prove that he’s innocent, Vinchy led Irene and the cops to the vehicle to show them that there’s nothing hidden inside that would incriminate him to whatever it is the cops are looking for. But to her surprise, the back of Vinchy’s car was filled with dozens of flowers, some gifts, some of their couple photos, and “Marry Me Irene” in gold letters. Awwww.

She was so scared that there’s something bad going to happen that Irene didn’t know how to react when she saw the surprise. It turned out that almost everyone was in on the surprise as many were already taking a video and smiling even before the ‘big reveal’. Some of their family members were also bring long-stemmed roses and some fruits as gifts for the couple.

Everyone cheered as Irene accepted the ring from Vinchy! What a sweet moment.

The videographers later clarified that the couple actually live together. No quarantine violations were made because the immediate family members seen in the video also lived in the same house.

Quarantine Proposals

Amid the pandemic, a lot of weddings and various events have been postponed. Wedding proposals might be challenging to do but just like Vinchy you can be creative.

Here’s a reminder: Don’t violate quarantine restrictions in your area. Make sure to still follow the rules, because the cops won’t be supportive of your declarations of love if you are violating the law.

Flash mobs are a no-no. This is a good time for private, intimate proposals with your sweetheart and her immediate family. Don’t forget to wear a mask and still practice social distancing.

But it turned out the Lalamove delivery rider only hesitated because he did not have much money. He had just come from his first delivery of the day. Naturally, he still didn’t have much cash yet. But he was ready to part with Php50.
