Mang Kanor to star in DOH’s anti-teen pregnancy video

Internet star and sex ed professional Ernesto “Mang Kanor” Knorr was confirmed by the DOH’ to be their main spokesperson in their latest anti-teen pregnancy campaign. In an interview with ACH, Mang Kanor said “I think we all need to do whatever we can about the rising rate of teenage pregnancy in the Philippines, so when they called me up and asked me if I wanted to help them with their campaign, I readily accepted…Ginagawa ko lang ang aking tungkulin bilang isang modelo ng kabataan.” (I am only doing my responsibilities as a role model for the youth.)

Mr. Knorr is best known for starring in the “Kanor/Rose” and “Mang Kanor” viral videos, and for headlining celebrity DJ Sasha Gray’s Manila concert. Little known fact, however, is that before his rise to fame, he was a professional gynecologist. “Graduate po ako ng Ateneo Med, so may experience po ako sa mga bagay na ito. I am very familiar with the female anatomy.”

Mang Kanor is also famous for being the face of Old Spice Philippines.

When the DOH was asked about why they chose him to be their spokesperson, DOH undersecretary Alfonso Macci said that Mang Kanor can use his internet following to help the DOH’s message reach the youth. “Mang Kanor has an interesting relationship with teenagers. Nearly everyone has watched his videos and many (young people) look up to him. With his help, I think we can make this pro-abstinence campaign a success.”
