10 Funniest Posts on the Coldplay Concert and Ferdinand Marcos
Trust the Internet to find a connection.
(SPOT.ph) When news broke on Monday night (November 14) that Coldplay is coming to the Philippines in 2017, various reactions—from excitement over the British rock band to sadness because of the ridiculously expensive tickets—spread all over the Internet. The announcement briefly overshadowed another recent event that made a buzz over social media: when the Supreme Court of the Philippines announced on November 8 that it is allowing the burial of former President Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani.
It was only a matter of time before people put two and two together to come up with the funniest but possibly true posts on these two issues.
The Marcos family stole around Php. 450B. In Coldplay tickets, this is equivalent to 128M Bronze tickets. Pwede na manood buong Pilipinas.— Averil Santos (@TheAveengers) November 16, 2016
Just putting it in context.
