He only wanted to turn the spotlight on a friend who was celebrating his birthday.
But actor Cesar Montano ended up putting the focus on someone else entirely after he appeared to have accidentally filmed a naked woman while he recorded his birthday greeting message.
The video was originally shared on the Facebook page of a certain Rolando Olano this Tuesday, before being re-uploaded by other users of the social media site, including some tabloids.
In it, Montano, also a resigned tourism board chief, was giving his message for a barangay official when a woman, who appeared to be nude, started to walk into view.
It remains unclear, however, whether the woman was truly naked or was wearing an article of clothing, but netizens were quick to assume that it was the former.
The original video has since been deleted.
Montano, as of the time this article was published, has yet to react on the viral clip.
