In new ad, Imee Marcos 'dabs' and rides it out with Sara Duterte
MANILA, Philippines – Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos’s latest political advertisement prominently features none other than President Rodrigo Duterte’s influential eldest daughter.
In the 30-second video, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte takes Marcos for a ride in her white Yamaha bike. Both ladies, wearing matching black leather jacket and vest over red tops, stop by a gas station where they slam politicking and call for governance that “puts people first.”
The video was posted on Wednesday evening, January 16, on Marcos’ official Facebook page.
Marcos, who comes from the northern province of Ilocos Norte, speaks Bisaya for the entire duration of the video – the language of the younger Duterte and her powerful father.
“Isantabi ang pulitiko at bangayan, taong bayan dapat ang una (Set aside politics and arguments, the people should come first),” quips Marcos.
The Ilocos governor and eldest daughter of the late strongman Ferdinand Marcos showed her more chipper side in an early part of the video where she energetically slaps an “i-suspend ang VAT (value-added tax)” (suspend VAT) sign on gasoline station equipment.
She then gamely does the “dab” dance as she proclaims, “Dapat aksyon at solusyon agad!” (Action and solutions first!)
As for Duterte, she tells viewers that for every problem, there is an “#ImeeSolusyon.”
Towards the end, she “interrupts” Marcos to say, “Ang daldal Talaga pero number 1 ka sa akin!” (She’s so talkative but she’s number one to me!)
Marcos is part of the senatorial slate of the Davao City Mayor’s regional senatorial slate. – Rappler.com
