MANILA, Philippines - Satire, humor and thin-skinned Filipinos. Filmmaker and teacher Jimmy Sieczka is the actor in the controversial internet production "20 Reasons Why I Dislike the Philippines." He talks about the concept behind the video, what it had hoped to achieve and his group's surprise that it had gone viral.
"By nature I'm pretty sarcastic."
"We just compiled things that would annoy you and we hit the street with like 40 of them. I think after the second or third one it was just all adlib. It was literally me walking and then things happening."
"Material wealth never meant anything to me, I never got into filmmaking to be famous or rich."
"Your life's normal and then completely different."
