A video of President Rodrigo “Rody” Duterte dancing to the tune of the popular dance song “Nae Nae” has gone viral. The video was taken in 2015 before he announced his presidential candidacy.
The video was taken at the office of Manila Bulletin, which Duterte visited last year. According to reports, the editorial team of the Manila Bulletin asked the then Davao City Mayor to show his dance moves as they play the “Nae Nae” song.
Duterte agreed to the request and even seemed to enjoy his dance performance as he asked one of the Manila Bulletin staff to dance with him. The woman and Duterte shared a cute rendition of the popular dance move.
The President, who is known for his rough and tough exterior, showed in this video that he is capable of having fun and that he does not take himself too seriously, according to many netizens who commented on the viral video.

“The best ka talaga. Ayoko ng mag nega basta iba ka sa mga naging pangulo,” a Facebook user said.
(You really are the best. I do not want to say anything negative but you are different from the past presidents.)
“Napaka playful talaga niya. Ang cool siguro maging lolo ‘to si Pres. Du30 (Duterte),” another user commented.
(He is really playful. It could be really cool for a person to have President Duterte as his grandfather.)
Despite his playful nature, Duterte is most famous for his aggressive stance against the illegal drug trade and other forms of criminality. Since Duterte became the President of the Philippines, hundreds of suspected drug lords, pushers, and users have already been killed in both legitimate police operations and vigilante activities while thousands of drug criminals have surrendered to the police. Various sectors have called for an investigation of the extrajudicial killings.
