Ogie Diaz had to explain himself after some netizens apparently didn’t get the joke when he posted a photo of himself beside a luxury car.
The comedian and talent manager recently uploaded on Facebook an image of him leaning on a green Lamborghini along with a satirical caption.
Ogie indicated buying something he deserves having been in the entertainment for 35 years.
“Bugbog na yung luma ko. Naghihingalo na, ika nga, kaya dapat nang bumili ng bago,” wrote Ogie while saying that it took him long to decide what color to buy of the item.
Ogie capped off his caption revealing what he actually bought: a phone charger.
“Ang tagal ko pang nag-decide.Itong green ang napili ko. Masarap sa mata. Lutang na lutang.
“Mapapansin agad ang bago kong biling charger,” he said.
However, Ogie was forced to make clarifications about his post after some netizens got too serious and thought that he bought a Lamborghini.
“Wala po akong Lamborghini. Sineryoso ng iba. Di nila binasa hanggang ending yung post ko, huhuhu!
“Iphone CHARGER po ang binili ko,” Ogie wrote in a Facebook post the next day.
Ogie then went into detail that the photo was taken at a parking lot in Las Vegas.
“Nag-choose lang po ako ng sasakyang didikitan. Tumabi po ako sa magarang sasakyan na kulay green. Tapos kung isu-zoom in nyo ang pic sa kamay ko, hawak ko po yung charger.
“Ayan, in-explain ko na po. Kasi, andaming slowliness is next to loveliness,” said Ogie.
Ogie also remarked that he won’t spend money on high-end cars even if he can afford to buy one.
“Hahaha! Ang masasabi ko lang, potah kayo! Hindi nyo iniintindi ang sinulat ko. Yung kabobohan nyo sa panghuhusga ng kapwa ang pinairal nyo.
On online news sites who picked up his Facebook post and reported that he owns a Lamborghini, Ogie noted: “Hahaha! Hindi ko kinaya!”
“Pasensiya na kung pang-matalino yung post ko, ha? Kaya palakpak para sa mga tumawa o napangiti ng post ko na yon, kasi matatalino sila.
“At least, kahit bina-bash ako ng iba, natuwa na din ako kasi — aminin— wala akong nabasang, ‘Huwag kang mag-ilusyon. Wala kang pera para ibili ng Lamborghini’.
“At least, andun yung feeling na “afford” palang bumili ng Lamborghini ni Ogie Diaz, huh!,” said Ogie in jest.
