Manila: A Central Philippines mayor has launched a drive against a disposable diaper advert, which he claims, promotes a distorted version of history as well as mocks an important episode in the country's past.
Barely two weeks before the commemoration of the Battle of Mactan, Lapu-Lapu City Mayor Paz Radaza is waging another battle and this time, it's against a diaper brand whose TV commercial makes fun of the fight between Lapu-Lapu and Magellan.
DATU Lapu-Lapu challenged Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan to a battle after the latter offered him diapers of poor quality. So goes a television commercial promoting a diaper brand. Lapu-Lapu City Mayor Paz Radaza yesterday called for the pullout of the latest EQ Diapers commercial, saying it is a "grave insult" to the Oponganons.
