LOOK: Filipino ‘superhero’ uses ‘special powers’ to perform home tasks
MANILA, Philippines — Locked down inside his home due to the spiraling coronavirus pandemic, a “superhero” is left with nothing to do but maximize his special powers to carry out ordinary tasks in his bid to kill boredom.
This fictional storyline apparently came to life when a Filipino photographer created a photo set portraying himself as a superhuman who uses his extraordinary powers to perform usual household chores like preparing food, cleaning the house, and doing the laundry.
Michael Perfecto, a freelance lensman based in Quezon City, told Inquirer that his creations were inspired by his penchant for food and product photography, and simply from the idea of being stuck at home because of quarantine restrictions.
Perfecto also said he drew motivation for designing his content from the new Netflix series Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief.
Metro Manila, Laguna province, and Cebu City have been placed under a modified enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) until May 31 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
