A driver has apologized for a viral video he created to show to everyone how to drive a car like a beast in Manila traffic, cutting off other cars and provoking another driver after he hit another vehicle’s side mirror.
In the Facebook video, the driver, identified as Tito Cosejo Jr, showed how he would go into “beast mode” behind the wheel and how he would prevent other vehicles from getting ahead of him.
At one point in the video, a second driver confronted Cosejo after he hit the side mirror of his vehicle.
Instead of apologizing, Cosejo and friends from inside the vehicle mocked the second driver before driving off. He also said in the video that he always remains calm while also issuing a threat to those who would confront him.
Meanwhile, Cosejo has also sent an appeal to Top Gear Philippines, saying that his wife and child are receiving threats as a result of the video.
“Ako po yung nasa video na naka-post sa fan page niyo. Madami po threats sa mag-ina ko at ayoko lang madamay pa sila nang lubusan. Ano po ba ang maipapayo niyong pinakamagandang gawin ko? Hindi ko masisisi ang reaction ng tao. Ang ikinalulungkot ko lang pati misis ko, pati yung 19-month-old kong anak, ay pinapatulan ng iba. Masakit po iyon para sa akin. Sana po maintindihan niyo ang kalagayan ko ngayon at ng pamilya ko,” the message from Cosejo said.
