Filipinos are so used to danger and natural calamities that they can easily find ways to smile and have fun despite the dangerous circumstances they are facing. One proof of that is the photo of the lechon being transported amid the floods in southern Philippines last December.
Another is the silly antics of Super Nak, the self-proclaimed Pinoy ‘superhero’ who attempted to blow away the ashes from the erupting Mayon Volcano to ‘protect’ his people.
It was, of course, a joke and you should lighten up as this guy simply chose to laugh at the situation he and his kababayans are facing right now.
The erupting Mt. Mayon has been spewing ashes high up into the air, leading to ash falls in nearby towns and cities. While the hot lava and possible lahar flow to the towns are more dangerous than the ash fall, this does not mean the ash is not dangerous.
Due to its chemical components and characteristics, ash fall from the volcano is more dangerous than ‘ordinary’ dust; thus, it can lead to severe respiratory problems, especially in those who have weak immune systems or those with asthma and other pre-existing respiratory conditions.
Everyone is advised to say indoors and clean up the ash fall once the eruption stops. This is to avoid getting your homes and properties damaged by the sulfuric ash.
But if Super Nak wins in his attempt to blow away the ashes of Mt. Mayon, then his people will be protected from danger.
Yet he could barely stand up straight and tall on that low wall he climbed up to as he attempted to blow away the ashes from the volcano using his, errrrr, electric fan power tool. The videos he made were hilarious; although it was the second one that really went viral on social media.
Have a good laugh at this superhero’s silly superpowers…
This was the first video he made:
