The Bench billboard featuring 7 members of the national rugby team Philippine Volcanoes posing in their underwear will soon be taken down.
This after Mandaluyong City Mayor Benhur Abalos asked advertisers to take it the said billboard along EDSA-Guadalupe. “That road is in the center of Metro Manila, ang daming dumadaan,” Abalos said. The advertisers have already committed to removing the said advertisement. The Philippine Volcanoes players include Jake Robrigado Letts, Ned Plarizan Stephenson, Oliver Joseph Abalos Saunders, Chris Alamil Everingham, Kenneth Capinpin Stern, Patrick Ortis Olivier, Francisco Bagis Guerra, Michael de Guzman, Nicholas Ergina Perry, Daaran Seetro, and Arnold Aninion.
