Watch Honesto, A Good Reminder For Us All

12:47:00 PM

Few weeks ago, right before Juan Dela Cruz announced that they'll be soon ending, Honesto started showing up in commercials as it is the next prime time TV series that will replace Juan Dela Cruz. And I like the concept of their nose are swelling when they tell lies. Perhaps and this is just a hunch that Honesto, with its honesty thrust, was intentionally driven out just right before the election to inform the masses that we all need an honest and trust worthy officials that will lead us even in this smallest form of the government.

Well we all hope that through this campaign of Honesto, Honest toh! will directly or indirectly teach everyone to be honest.
