"Norwegia" is trending in the Philippines because, well, it's an easy bandwagon to jump into


Norway is to "Norwegia" as Broadway is to "Broadwegia". There are many easy ways to "weigh in" on the circus surrounding the latest comms gaffe of the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO).

There's not much to work with though. It is what it is. And Filipinos find it funny. It's the sort of one-dimensional humour that makes producing hit low-brow comedy movies in the Philippines easy pickins for the Philippines' Big Media industry.

A movie of the same title. Now there's an idea there possibly worth millions of pesos. Who should star in it? Watch for it.
