Filipino Transformers

I was chatting with Bryant, the fitness instructor at the Columns a few weeks ago. He was telling me about things he'd read about the upcoming sequel to the Transformers movie and joked about a Filipino version.

I don't know if he saw this online, but here you have it: the Transformers in a Filipino context!

And you can't stop with that!

I knew there was something missing. An online friend found it, though:

No Philippine version of the Transformers would be complete without a pedicab to transform!

Let's face it: Filipinos can't relate to the vehicles in the movie. There are few enough Filipinos who can afford cars, much less big American cars! So what they see in the film is completely alien here....

...hmmm, alien. Kind of like the Transformers themselves, huh?
