BBC’s Stephen Sackur Invites Bong Revilla And Mr. Bean To A Live Dance Showdown

LONDON, United Kingdom (The Adobo Chronicles, Paris Bureau) – Stephen Sackur wants to do something different for an upcoming episode of his BBC talk show, “Hardtalk.” He wants a live showdown between Philippine Senatorial candidate Bong Revilla and British comedian Rowan Atkinson, more populary known for his TV character, Mr. Bean. Not an ordinary showdown, but a dance showdown.

The idea came from viral political campaign videos showing Revilla doing budots  dance moves as his way of courting votes. Mr. Bean apparently saw the videos and made his own to prove that he is a better dancer.
Sackur, who has endeared himself to Filipinos for his hard-hitting interviews with Philippine politicians like Senator Antonio Trillanes, says the dance showdown will be a first in British talk show history and could start a new trend not only in Great Britain but worldwide.
BBC has not announced a date for the television showdown.

Some soundproof their bedrooms to spare their household from loud noises that happen within. Some sex experts recommend soundproofing bedrooms for kinky sex.

ABS-CBN is reporting that Queen of All Media Kris Aquino had a recent accident in her bedroom. She cried for help but apparently, no one heard her because her bedroom was  sound proof.

To dispel all speculation, Aquino told The Adobo Chronicles that she chose to soundproof her bedroom not for reasons of kinky or loud sex, but because she is always on the phone with friends and business partners even late at night and didn’t want to disturb her household.

So there.
