The ASEAN Summit Wasn't the Only Time Bong Go Used His Picture-Taking Skills

The "Selfie King" was pretty good at photobombing even before this week's events.


( Special Assistant to President Rodrigo Duterte, Christopher "Bong" Go, has added one more title to his name: "Selfie King."


Go was given the moniker because of his photos with world leaders who were here in the Philippines for the recently concluded 31st ASEAN Summit in Pasay City held on Monday and Tuesday. But a quick look through his Facebook photos would suggest that this isn't the first time that he's enjoyed being surrounded by international personalities.

Even when he's an Avenger, Bong Go is a master at the photobomb. 


Notable heads of state Go had selfies with during the ASEAN Summit include U.S. President Donald Trump, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. 



Media outlets took notice of these photos, according to a report by the Philippine Star. U.S.-based The Washington Post dubbed him “Selfie King,” while Australia’s Sydney Morning Herald described him as the “Philippine government official who can’t help taking a selfie.”



But if Go had the chance to have snaps with renowned leaders, Facebook users have been given the chance to have their photos taken with Go himself. A Bong Go photo filter is now circulating on the social networking platform and is available if you use the filter with your current profile photo.
