Duterte assistant dubbed ‘selfie king’ now a hilarious Facebook filter

The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit revealed a lot of  information over the past few days.

Now we know how Donald Trump looks wearing a Barong Tagalog, that it is “theoretically possible” for Canada to take back garbage they dumped here in 2013, and that President Rodrigo Duterte’s Special Assistant Bong Go is the undisputed “selfie king.”

And it’s not just the Washington Post that thinks so.

Yesterday, Facebook users started sharing their own photos “with” Go using a new profile photo frame now available on the social media platform.

The filter was made by Facebook page Photo by SAP Bong Go on Tuesday.

He was previously known as the pambansang photobomber (national photobomber) for being in almost every photo with President Rodrigo Duterte. Now he can be in every photo of yours too with this hilarious Facebook filter. Check it out:


And people did try it.



Someone even requested to add the filter in another platform.


And of course, others turned it into a meme.

This comes after Go himself posted his selfies with world leaders that attended the ASEAN Summit. He has one with United States President Donald Trump, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

Thanks, internet. And thank you Filipinos for always finding a meme from just about anything.
