CEBU CITY -- 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 called on Wednesday for the pullout of the latest EQ Diapers commercial, saying it is a “grave insult” to the Oponganons.
The mayor also demanded a public apology from the owner of the product.
“Distorting history and making the Battle of Mactan look funny on TV is a lame attempt to promote a product,” she said in a press conference.
Radaza said she will write the National Historical Commission of the Philippines to complain about the 30-second commercial.
