Pinoy Thriller Video

I’m always disappointed with how lamely the Phlippines is portrayed and don’t get me started on the seemingly non-existent tourism marketing. It’s either a an informercial guilting you into sending money for some poor street urchin on late-night TV or it’s some failed coup.

I saw this video last week and I was wondering if it was for real. My friend Roger in the Philippines confirmed it with this news article. I’m planning on visiting the Philippines next year. Maybe I’ll stop by to view their ‘exercises’. I’m sure some enterprising Filipino’s will make it a tourist attraction.

p.s. I recently saw one other positive PR piece on my birthland on History Channels “Human Weapon”. It featured the Philippine’s martial-arts: Escrima and Kalis/Arnis.
