WATCH: These dancing MMDA enforcers will make your day
Are you up for the #MMShake dance challenge?
(SPOT.ph) A Facebook video wherein two officers of the Metro Manila Development Authority were shaking their "groove thing" started making its rounds on the Internet in the afternoon of June 6. It wasn't a scandal nor an unjustified apprehension, but an entertaining invitation for the upcoming metro-wide earthquake drill on June 22 starting at 9 a.m. It has more than 420,000 views and more than 6,000 shares as of writing.
The annual Metro Manila Shake Drill, which was first held on July 30, 2015, aims to educate the public on what to do in case of a major earthquake (a.k.a. "The Big One"). The second shake drill will simulate the aftermath of a 7.2 magnitude tremor, including the possible scenario of a collapsed Guadalupe Bridge in Makati City. Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) chairman Emerson Carlos warned motorists that the outermost northbound lane of EDSA will be on standstill for approximately an hour during the drill.

The video post on the MMDA's Facebook Page also tagged automotive site Top Gear Philippines and TV host James Deakin to do their own version of the MMShake Dance Challenge. Top Gear Philippines replied, "We're thinking of dancing to "Milkshake"." Can't wait for that!
