Mayor Isko Moreno’s giant billboards on EDSA has proven to be a boon and bane for the Manila mayor which many suspect is setting his sight for a national position.
International relations expert and assistant professor in one of the prestigious universities in Europe Sass Rogando Sasot just exploited this recently.
In a Facebook that has left 14,000+ netizens in stitches with a witty retort, Sasot took a swipe at Yorme Isko Moreno’s giant billboards on EDSA.
On Facebook, Sasot wrote a caption to accompany the pic of Yorme Isko’s billboard below: “Bakuna di billboards…char”
In less than 24 hours, Sasot’s FB post has generated 18,000 reactions, 1,500 comments and 481 reactions and counting.
Netizens have a field day expressing their opinion on Yorme Isko Moreno’s giant billboards as shown in the animated comments below.
“Ang liit lng pla ng billboards ni yorme Hindi sya kitang Kita..Kya pla ayaw nia maglibot kng saan saan daig pa ang lumibot” a netizen commented that Yorme’s billboards looked tiny in jest.
“People shouldn’t forget that he is from showbiz. And that showbiz people like him are good at facing camera only. Ever since i wasn’t buying his image of grandeur, live patrolling the streets and doing his good deeds in front of camera. Those are superficial and taking advantage of his edge being a celebrity and mayor. These things are all like bubbles, people are mesmerized but then later on all these are just a floating air bubbles that just part of showmanship. You can’t play the presidential role with such kind of charade,” a netizen warned Filipinos not to fall for Yorme’s antics because as an actor, he is used to role playing in front of the camera.
“Diyan ka magaling yorme, nakikita mo yung dumi ng ibang tao sa mukha pero yang sarili mong dumi e hindi mo nakikita, dapat lang pala na magsama sama kayo nila manny pak at siyokoy pimentel sa isang partido at pagta tandem dahil pare pareho kayong pulat puti, at hunyango, mga walang utang ng loob sa duterte” a netizen remarked on Yorme’s talent of finding faults of others but can’t even see his own faults.
“Galit sa billboard ni sara pero ngayun wow na wow yorme wag laki sara all lang sakalam“ noted one netizen.
“yung mahilig kang pumuna sa iba tapos payag ka din pala bastat itsura mo nka lagay, pero yung pinuna mo yorme pribado at supporter ni mayor sara nagpagawa ng tarp eh yung sayo si belo at jag sabagay pribado dn nman. Mamamayan nlang ang huhusga,“ a netizen further expounded what the above-commenter said.
Meanwhile, a supporter of Yorme Isko was quick to point out that Sass Sasot’s caption alluding Manila is running out vaccines because Yorme has been busy shooting EDSA ads is further from the truth and way off the mark. The commenter claimed that inoculation in Manila has been ongoing. In addition, Yorme’s billboards has been there on EDSA even before the pandemic. “makapanira mag iimbento ka fyi po maam tuloy tuloy po ang bakuna dto sa maynila at yang billboard na yan tagal yan wla pang pandemic at ung pera na kinita jan binigay sa PGH hanap ka nlang ibang panira sensya kna madam nag model ksi mayor nmin” [PhilStar]
“Most of the billboards are made early on bago May nag palobo sa utak ni isko na tumakbo for higher office. pero nag level up na cia.. May movie na.. Ang tanong manonood ka ba!? parang na umay ako sa kayabangan nia lately I may say pass to it haha same answer pag tumakbo cia na vp o pres. Na try na kasi natin ang artistang vp at pres eh ..
