Did president Barack Obama really do the 'pabebe wave'?

AlDub fans are glad of the news about US president Barack Obama doing the "pabebe wave" aboard a Philippine Navy ship. But did he really do it?



Based on the picture, it's hard to tell that the leader of the most powerful country in the world did the "pabebe wave," a gesture popularized by the famous love team of actor Alden Richards and online sensation-turned TV star Maine "Yaya Dub" Mendoza.

It was the other guy in the viral photo, Navy Captain Vincent Sibala, commanding officer of BRP Gregorio Del Pilar, who did it perfectly.

There's no issue, actually.

What's important is that the photo became a source of pride for AlDub Nation and it also made Sibala's children very happy. What's even more important is that it grabbed public attention for a fundraising effort.

The ship's entire crew is raising funds for the repair of a building at the Gregorio Del Pilar Elementary School in Manila which was razed by fire. Now, with all the media mileage, many people including AlDub fans would support their cause, that's for sure!
