Presidential aspirant Senator Panfilo “Ping” Lacson Sr. of the Partido Reporma took the word association celebrity challenge as he wished Kris Aquino the best of luck in the word game.

In a video uploaded on Facebook, Ping shared the final video installment of the word association celebrity challenge, wherein he would describe the celebrities flashed on screen.

The celebrities range from local personalities to foreign superstars. Here’s the rundown of the word game.

Kris Aquino (Facebook)

Dolphy: “Another legend…Comedy King.”

Kris Aquino: “Good luck to her. I wish her well. She deserves to be happy.”

Rico J. Puno: “Maginoo pero bastos.”

Bruce Lee: “Legend. Action.”

Efren “Bata” Reyes: “Wow. Another legend. Billiard.”

Paeng Nepomuceno: “Of course, bowling. World champion.”

Michael Jordan: “My idol. I’m forever a basketball fan of Michael Jordan.”

LeBron James: “Next to Michael Jordan.”

Muhammad Ali: “Boxing legend.”

While Kris is campaigning for another presidential candidate in the 2022 national election, she will always have a soft spot in the heart of the senator.

During a sortie in Cebu in December, Ping recalled how the Visayan province requested former President Cory Aquino, mother of Kris, to retain him as Philippine Constabulary’s Metropolitan District Commander.

“Importante ang Cebu sa akin. Adopted son ako ng Cebu dahil na-assign ako riyan as MetroDisCom Commander for 28 months, at nag-request sila kay then President Cory Aquino na i-retain ako (Cebu is very important to me because the people of Cebu made me an adopted son due to my performance as the Philippine Constabulary’s Metropolitan District Commander there. When my tour of duty was about to end there, they requested the late former President Corazon Aquino to retain me),” said Lacson during the Lascson-Sotto weekly media forum, as reported. by

Lacson’s regular two-year term of office as a field commander in Cebu would have ended in August 1991, but with the request to the late Mrs. Aquino to extend his term, he stayed at Cebu MetroDisCom until February 1992, when he was transferred to Laguna, the same report added.
