(SPOT.ph) With e-commerce becoming more prevelant, accessible, and user-friendly in the last few years, more and more people have been able to discover great finds they probably wouldn't have known about before. But let’s also admit that even the savviest of us have fallen victim to a bogus buy, be it false advertisement, scam sellers, or just poor-quality products. Even Parokya ni Edgar drummer Dindin Moreno knows the feeling. The musician took to Facebook on April 16 to poke fun at a band T-shirt that he spotted online. At first glance it seems to be a bootleg Eraserheads tee, but take a closer look and you’ll see that printed on the shirt is actually five of the members of Parokya ni Edgar—namely Gab Chee Kee, Moreno himself, Buwi Meneses, Chito Miranda, and Darius Semaña—printed under the Eheads logo.

Parokya ni Edgar Drummer Pokes Fun at Bootleg Band T-Shirt

"We are aware that there are a lot of bootleg Parokya [ni Edgar] and Eraserheads shirts being sold on Shopee and Lazada," says Moreno. "Pero naman... Sana mag match naman yung picture ng band sa pangalan." He finished off his lighthearted quip with three face-palm emojis. The post was later shared on April 21 by the official Parokya ni Edgar Facebook page, which made no further comment save for two equally cheeky emojis.

From what we could find, the image on the T-shirt seems to be a press photo of Parokya ni Edgar used for a 2016 concert of theirs held in Koronadal City, South Cotabato. Funnily enough, Chee Kee, who's standing on the leftmost side, was originally wearing a Parokya ni Edgar T-shirt in the photo, but the seller seems to have doctored it into an Eheads tee—got to admire their dedication. We looked for the shirt featured in Moreno's post online and it seems to be from a Shopee-based store—though copycats are common online—which specializes in custom-printed finds like stickers, keyholders, mugs, and yes, graphic tees.

Now, to be fair to this seller—and as commenters have pointed out—the shirt's print seems to be inaccurate on purpose. The same listing offers a Nirvana T-shirt with a photo of boyband Hansen on the front—likely to poke fun at the former's resemblance to the latter, at least hair-wise. Even so, Facebook commenters' response to Moreno’s post—and Parokya ni Edgar's repost—make for a pretty entertaining scroll. As of writing, Moreno's post has over 1,300 reactions, 40 comments, and 382 shares while Parokya ni Edgar’s repost has over 5,500 reactions, 243 comments, and 241 shares.
