So it's officially the first day of Metro Manila's return to a modified enhanced community quarantine and granted, the times are even stranger than we've gotten used to since 2020 began. But here's a real clincher: A video of an ostrich running in a Quezon City subdivision is making the rounds online. Yes, you read that right. A giant, two-legged, flightless bird with brains smaller than its eyeballs, is running loose in the city.
The original video was posted by Dino Rivera, who told GMA News Online that he was just going about their business buying stuff from a nearby neighborhood store when it happened.
According to a report on Esquiremag.ph, Rivera said the village’s security guards told him the ostriches are owned by a lot owner in an adjacent village. The ostriches reportedly escaped their enclosure.
Unsurprisingly, amid all the crazy stuff going down in Metro Manila, the sudden appearance of the ostrich has given people something new and, thankfully, different to think about. Others, meanwhile, are amazed at the content of the video itself and no longer needed actual context to appreciate its majesty.
Lav Diaz, but only if he made super short films.
Oh, what bliss.
@ Angkas, ang bilis!
