Marcos now a certified Gold YouTuber

As of morning of 24 December, the official YouTube account of the President has 2.72 million subscribers.

President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. has earned his YouTube Gold Play Button — an award given to YouTube content creators who reach one million followers.

In a vlog uploaded late Friday evening, Marcos thanked his followers for the “best Christmas present.”

As of morning of 24 December, the official YouTube account of the President has 2.72 million subscribers.

Elated, Marcos said he is grateful to his followers for helping him reach a wider audience through his social media accounts.

“I have long been waiting for this,” Marcos said in the video while a staff member presented him the Gold Play Button.

“This is the best Christmas gift I have ever received… I am thankful to all my followers,” he said.

The Chief Executive, who did not stop making YouTube videos despite being elected to the highest office, encouraged social media users to visit his social media accounts to keep them updated about his activities.

“Let us continue to post, comment, and subscribe to my social media accounts… Please continue to support me,” he said.

He vowed to continue vlogging to help the public be informed of his administration’s plans, projects, and programs.

Marcos has been using the video streaming platform since 2009 when he ran for senator in the 2010 elections.

His most-viewed vlogs are the ones he had with his eldest son, Ilocos Norte Representative Sandro Marcos, and his mother Imelda.

In the first video, he and Sandro watched and reacted to popular TikTok videos of their supporters. It has garnered more than 3.9 million views.

Another video is about the “backstories” of the projects spearheaded by his mother Imelda when she was the First Lady, with over 3.7 million views.

Imelda served as the First Lady of the Philippines from 1965 to 1986 during the administration of her late husband, the 10th president—Ferdinand Marcos Sr.

Her notable projects include the construction of the Cultural Center of the Philippines Complex, Folk Arts Theater, Philippine International Convention Center, Manila Film Center, and the Coconut Palace.
