Dingdong Dantes seems to be more open to working with the administration now after years of being identified with President Rodrigo Duterte’s predecessor.
Dantes starred in a 30-second educational video for the Department of Health, in which he talked about the importance of handwashing and proper hygiene as protection against coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
The actor, however, wasn’t the only “dilawan” or Aquino ally who took part in making the video.
Filmmaker Jose “Pepe” Diokno, son of abogado Chel Diokno, directed the video.
Pepe was also behind the campaign ads of his father, who ran for senator in the 2019 elections but lost.
The DOH said the video is part of an infomercial series on fighting COVID-19 featuring showbiz personalities.
