The FB Page OFWs for Isko Moreno has raised the eyebrows of Duterte supporters by posting a graphics of Mayor Isko Moreno calling him “Ang Agila ng Maynila”?
The graphics asked if Filipinos are ready when the eagle flies? Lilipad na ang agila…handa ba na kayo?
While its true that “Isko Moreno, Ang Agila ng Maynila” is catchy, prominent Duterte supporter and Manila Bulletin writer Krizette Laureta Chu found Yorme Isko’s branding inauthentic.
In a Facebook post that has already generated 15,200+ reactions, Chu gave the supporters of Isko a gentle reminder that the “Agila” brand is associated with the President Duterte because the Philippine eagle is endemic to Mindanao and Davao has the “agila” center.
Gentle reminder to Mayor Isko Moreno and fans: Kaya agila ng Davao sila Duterte and that’s the symbolism kasi nga agila is endemic to Mindanao, and Davao has the agila center, hence the visuals. That’s the branding
In addition, Chu pointed out that there is no eagle in Manila. And if there is such a brand as the “Agila of Maynila”, FPJ owned it and the only one who can use it is none other than Grace Poe.
Wala nang agila sa Manila. Yung Agila ng Maynila, si Fernando Poe yun. So si Grace Poe lang pwede gumamit nun.
Chu joked that Leni can use the COCONUT NG BICOL brand.
So si Leni pwede sya COCONUT NG BICOL. Anong laman ng coconut ng Bicol ganon. Parang Anong laman ng coconut ni Mama Leni ng Bicol? Tune in sa Oct 8.
On a serious note, Chu advised Yorme Isko to find his identity and the “agila” is out because it is a disconnect of of his persona.
So bale maghahanap kayo ng identity. Hindi puwedeng agila kasi Wala syang connect sa persona ni Mayor Isko.
Chu dropped a couple of monikers for Isko which she thinks fits him but majority of which should be taken with a grain of salt.
Puwedeng Totoy Mola ng Tondo, Tondo Boy ng… Tondo, Hari ng Manila (Zoo) because of the zoo na inaayos now, Mr. Jones (dahil sa lighting ng Jones bridge)…. Pwede meron video sya na Mr Jones Jones (bridge), calling Mr Jones (bridge), wake me up, ayyyyeeee ayeeeey! Pwede rin To the Left, To the Left, everything you own in the box to the Left. Mga ganyan.
Chu wrapped up the FB post without any definite idea what animal or symbolism is associated with Manila that should fit Yorme Isko’s branding.
Ano ba animals at symbolism Manila hindi ko alam. Madami Kalapati sa Manila? Kalapati ng Malate. Rhyming. Charot mga ganyan. (Meron daw sabi ng reader MANILA BAE o di ba kasi POGI SYA.)
Netizens had a field day outdoing each other in finding the symbolism that fits Yorme Isko and his brand.
anong agila hoy isko ikaw ay SISIW ng maynila marami ka pang kakainin na (ano ba kinakain ng sisiw) basta yun yun…tondo boy huwag masyadong mangarap na lumipad ng mataas kc bagsak mo malalim pa sa lupa, wrote one netizen.
Pwede ring Parrot ng Maynila, maingay eh. commented another.
Isko, ang surot ng Maynila. Pwede ring ipis, butiki, daga, o di kaya langaw. Tila mas bagay ang langaw kasi kahit saang dumi lumalapag, suggested another netizen.
Pipit ng Maynila….. Alagang Ibon ni JomaSison… chimed in another.
