MANILA, Philippines — Some things never change in Philippine election  campaigns and Friday was no different as United Nationalist Alliance candidates danced to “Harlem Shake” and “Gangnam Style” in Muntinlupa City.

Some 3,000 people gathered at a bus terminal in Alabang to see UNA senatorial candidates dance to two of what may be considered as among the most popular songs of late with their host for the night — comedienne Tiya Pusit.

Most people were clad in green shirts to show support for UNA local candidate, incumbent city Mayor Aldrin San Pedro.

Among UNA senatorial candidates who joined the motorcade with its local bets were Nancy Binay, Congressman Milagros Mitos Magsaysay of Zambales, Ernesto Maceda, Richard “Dick” Gordon, and the wife of Senator Miguel Zubiri.

The sortie was also attended by Valenzuela City Mayor Sherwin Gatchalian, UNA’s newly appointed deputy campaign manager.

During the earlier part of the event, stage performances and games were held as supporters waited for the UNA bets to arrive from a motorcade along Barangay (village) Cupang earlier Friday.

When the candidates arrived past 8 p.m., comedian Tiya Pusit took over the hosting, and engaged each senatorial bet in a dance showdown with her to the beat of “Harlem Shake” and “Gangnam Style.”

Gatchalian said UNA would be applying new strategies, adding he is confident that the group will improve its numbers.

“Maaga pa. Two moths is a very long time. Marami pang pwedeng gawin para tumaas ang numbers,” he said.

    • nakawan

      It’s so pathetic even Zubiri the Cheater refused to participate and sent his wife instead.

    • destierro

      You mean Gaddem Snakes and Tangna Style? Or is it Gangster style?

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/AIYSIJJOL4JNRLHXVTGUH3NYHM The Overlord

    Pathetic. Most of the UNA candidates are the very definition of inutile and incompetent. These clowns should be banned from holding public office.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/W6OYQAQ3YNWGE4SIRA4IIQ4Y3Y joshua

      mas incompetent ang Team Malaysia still hanggang walang ginagawang hakbang sa mga kababayan nating pinapatay at minamaltrato sa Sabah. No to Team Malaysia

      • indiosbravos2002

        Wag ka ngang sumaakay sa Sabah issue. Ayusin mo campaign ng UNArroyo. Bagsak na sa survey mga tao mo. Si Erap abagsak na sa Maynila. Si Enrile, di na Sente president sa hulyo. At si Binay pasun block mo pra pumiti naman.

    anak ng tipaklong! hindi ba nakakabobo yang campaign sorties ng UNA? nanakainsulto sa sa mga botante yan. bobong botante lang ang makakarelate sa mga ganyang palabas kagaya ng mga viewers ng wowowillie na walang kakuwenta kwenta! dapat kapag sumayaw ng gangnam at harlem shake hindi na iboto kasi bobo yun at walang alam, walang plataporma kya walang silbi kung manalo un. magisip isip naman sana ang mga pinoy minsan…

    • tarikan

      Pre que daw, mas maraming bobobotante sa Pinas kesa marurunong. Tumitili pa ang mga yan pagnakakakita ng artista or celebrity.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/3AXROSN6LN5YP66EONOKGSSYFY Ngiping Dilaw

        Oo maraming bobong botante. Tulad ng ang ibinoboto ay yung pina popular lang ng media, anak ni ganito ni ganyan, o dahil popular ang ina. May mga walang kakayahang mamuno pero dahil kamamatay lang ng ama o ina ayun ibinoto na.

  • Noel

    Very old style. Dancing and singing.

  • 33Sambuang2

    • speaksoftlylove

      Inggit ka lang.

      Palibhasa pandango lang ang sinasayaw ni PNoy mo at doon lang sa Obando sumasayaw.

      Hindi anak ang hinihingi kundi asawa kaya lang ayaw pakinggan ng mga anito.

      Di kasi malaman kung anong klaseng asawa ang hinihingi.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/3AXROSN6LN5YP66EONOKGSSYFY Ngiping Dilaw

        Kumusta si Padaca na piniyansahan ni PNOY? 60 billion lang naman ang pork barrel ni PNOY kada taon. Ang crime rate sa panahon ni PNOY bumaba ba? Nawala ba mahihirap? Tinaasan pa ni PNOY ang taxes mahal pa rin bilihin, walang infrastractures. Iyan lang ang serbisyong kayang ibigay ni PNOY.

  • OFW Reader

Mistulang mga palaboy at busabos na nagpapalimos ng awa sa mga botante na atat-na-atat naman makakita ng madalas nilang makita’t mapanood sa dyaryo at TV. KUNG ako yong nanood ISISIGAW kong, “TAKE IT OFF…..TAKE IT ALL OFF!”….malamang gagawin din yon ng mga TNL na mga yan.

  • Philcruz

    UNA: “Maaga pa. Two months is a very long time. Marami pang pwedeng gawin para tumaas ang numbers.”

    Sure, there’s planking, there’s standing on your heads, … marami pa.

    Kung walang alam sumayaw na laang. Dapat absolute monarchy na laang ang Pinas para wala ng nakakatawang election. Prince BongBong Marcos should ascend to the throne left by his Maharlika parents King Ferdinand & Queen Imelda. That way isa laang ang katawatawa.

    Masisipag ang taga UNA. Di tulad ni Presidente, bilib na bilib yung iba sa gangga hanip na serbisyong kayang ibigay ng Presidente nila. Noong nagka oil spill sa La Union di man lang nagpadala ng sundalo para tumulong sa mga tao. Magaling lang manermon si PNOY pero kulang sa gawa.

  • bebang

    Gusto ko mapanood! Pero di ko sila iboboto. Gusto ko lang sila makitang parang uto-uto. Yun kasi ang gusto nilang gawin sa atin e. Katawa siguro yung mga nalulusaw na ang make-up sa pawis at yung mga lalaki na hirap gumalaw sa laki ng tiyan!

  • koolkid_inthehouse

    UNA is dancing and singing to create jobs for poor and unemployed Filipinos? They’ll get hired by some strip clubs to dance naked on happy hours but poor Filipinos who don’t know how to dance can work as a sex workers.

  • AllinLawisFair

    What a ridiculous way to gain the sympathy of the people!

    This shows that these bunch of inept persons would result to low methods to attract viewers, thinking that the intelligence of the voters could be insulted by such show of stage performances.

    kapag nahalal pa naman ang mga U_N_As na yan dahil sa pagtatanghal ng perya, wala na tayong dapat sisihin kundi ating sarili.
