  • To ease his kababayans’ tension amid the eruption of Mayon Volcano, a man had a crazy idea to help extinguish the ashes brought about by the phenomenal activities of the volcano
  • It was not his first attempt to do so, and his second video happened to be a lot “viral” than the first

In a video shared by Gary Bañaga on Facebook, a man was seen trying to blow away the ash fall at “Kalye Ronot”, Barangay Calzada, Guinobatan, Albay.

Using his super powers, Delber Hinaut a.k.a. Super Nak was seen balancing from his favorite spot while trying to blow away the Mayon’s ash fall with his unplugged electric fan.

Mr. Bañaga told Kicker Daily News that the ‘heroic’ incident was recorded around 2:00 p.m. Monday; a few hours after the Mayon erupted at noon.

In just a few hours, his uploaded video was shared more than 5,300 times,gaining more than 292,000 views as of this posting. Comments have, likewise, poured on the video; with many finding it funny and uplifting.

However, it’s not the first time Super Nak did such an act to bring humor amid a very trying situation.

On January 17, Super Nak got himself in a very tiring situation when he ‘courageously’ fought the ashes with an abaniko (Filipino native fan). That video of him was viewed over 12,000 times.

The Filipinos are known to be happy people; even in times of calamity and suffering,  they always find ways to smile. An example of which are the Bicolanos, just like a previous story when cheerful Albayanos did the  “Chili Cha Cha” in the rain during a funeral.

*Writer’s note: Super Nak is  a real hero, in a sense. With his humor, he was able to ease the stress of many Bicolanos. The real power being talked about here is that innate fighting spirit and resilience of Filipinos that even other countries adore; that even Yolanda, Mayon, or World War II couldn’t shatter. As five-star General Douglas MacArthur said: “Give me ten thousand Filipino soldiers and I will conquer the world.”
