      Thursday, April 11, 2013 IT is a great service to our country when the mayor of Lapu-Lapu City acquired the courage to come out against the crass commercialization of an episode in our history.

      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.

      Mayor objects to ad linking Datu to diapers

      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.

      There is no diaper during Lapu lapu's time so it is completely irrelavant to the product endorsed. EQ must change its marketing strategy to convince mothers to buy its diapers for their babies.

      We should respect our history and the people behind it. Lapu-Lapu is a national hero, the first to defend against imperialism.

      I want our young generation to remember our heroes as people who died for a cause and with dignity. Not as a diaper endorser.

      We dont want our young generation to remember our brave heroes as a diaper endorser. Let's remember them as heroes and that's it.

      The ad trivializes a proud moment of Philippine history. We should not make fun out of an important event that has come to define and symbolize Filipino patriotism.
