On YouTube, the Bubble Gang star uploaded a video of his parody version of Eraserheads’ popular song Torpedo; highlighting the trending “lugaw issue” that has been a hot topic in the country, online and offline.

“Wala lang. Bigla lang akong na-inspire do’n sa trending video ngayon ‘tsaka may hangover pa yata ako ng parody virus. Enjoy this ‘essential’ parody!” he captioned the video he posted, inviting everyone for another parody song.

In a video circulating online, a Grab rider is seen pleading village officials to let him deliver the “lugaw”, explaining that he did not violate any enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) protocol despite coming to the area at night as he carries food, which is considered as an essential item.

The officials, on the other hand, insisted that “lugaw” is “non-essential”.

In his song, Michael V also included the audio from the aforementioned video, but apart from bringing laughter to social media users, his parody also intends to create awareness on the things that some people tend to forget amid the current situation.
