With the advent of the Internet, Facebook, Twitter, and Smartphones, going viral (or “gossip” for us Pinoy) is sooo much easier. But what about the early days? Without cyberspace, without Social Media? Back in the 80′s and 90′s, we knew how to do viral even before viral was cool. Check it out after the jump!

1. THE ULTIMATE WARRIOR’S MYSTERIOUS DEATH

When I was growing up there was a rumor (yup… believe me when I tell you that EVERY KID in the neighborhood knew about this one) – the rumor went:  The Ultimate Warrior, a badass wrestling icon from the WWF died when his nerves popped out while doing rigorous gym and weightlifting.

Boy, did I fall for that! As you can see in his Wikipedia entry, the Ultimate Warrior, born James Brian Hellwig on June 16, 1959, is still alive and well. Sigh.

2. THE SNAKE WOMAN AT ROBINSONS GALLERIA

During the 80′s, at the height of the new mall – Robinsons Galleria, there was a genuine “scare” going around the metro.

Rumor has it that the one of the daughters of the mall owner was cursed – she lived her life as a horrible “snake woman”, half human – half monster.

And that she lairs deep in the bowels of their mall. Legend also has it that trained staff would kidnap lone mall-goers and feed them to the snake woman. Any attempt to discover about their disappearance ended in futility.

No one knew if this was a nasty black propaganda by competitor malls. But when I was a teen-ager, I stayed awaaay from Robinsons when I was alone. Whew!

3. THE 80′s PHOTO SHARING – RANDY SANTIAGO ON A P5 BILL

Drats!

I couldn’t find a legit “Randy Santiago” on a “Limang Piso” photo via Google (one of the very few failed Google searches). Anwyays, since defacing a bill is against the law, I won’t even touch the photo above (of the actual 5-peso bill of Emilio Aguinaldo) which was “cloned” by the face of Randy Santiago every day.

Anyways, those who experienced this strange phenomenon (even before the advent of the Internet and photo sharing) would agree, that this was as viral as viral can get. I really wondered what Randy’s thoughts were on this subject.

This could probably be the first instance of “Photo Sharing” without Social Media, yes? LOLS!

4. THE WHITE LADY OF BALETE

Balete Drive is a dark road slicing New Manila in Quezon City. At night, due to the many Balete trees at the side of the road, it gets real spooky!

Legends have it that a woman, who was run over, haunts the area. Taxi drivers and motorists have reported sightings of the “White Lady” either at the side of the road or (heaven forbid)… riding at the backseat of the car.

During that time (or maybe even now) only the brave drive through Balete on a dark, rainy night…

That’s about all I can think of right now. If you know any other “viral” stories of old, feel free to comment below or let me know via my Facebook page!

And, by the way, don’t forget to share!
