A Thai news website unwittingly used a GIF of Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque in what is now a viral tweet reminding people to wash their hands. 

"We have no idea who this person is," wrote the Thai Enquirer in a tweet. "We used the GIF because he's round and Asian!!" it added. The GIF shows Roque vigorously pumping his fist in the air.

 

In a statement, Roque made light of the post.

"The fact that the Philippine government’s advocacy campaign has caught international attention underscores how effective our message is, which we articulate in every press briefing and which we prominently display on the podium, in conveying that we must adhere to such health standards aimed at saving lives and protecting the communities," said Roque.
