When the four past presidents and current leader Rodrigo Duterte met on Wednesday and posed for a historical photo, some Filipinos found an opportunity to get creative. 

Duterte and former presidents Fidel Ramos, Joseph "Erap" Estrada, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, and Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III, got together for the National Security Council (NSC) meeting in Malacanang Palace.

The meeting was "a rare show of unity" and historic too, for being able to bring together all living presidents. 

But creative netizens had other ideas. 

There was SpiderDan Geromo, who thought it would nicer if all other presidents joined the fun. 

A group of photo editors also used their talent to add humor to the historic photo. In a compilation by GoEdit Pilipinas' fanpage, here are some manipulated images: 

1. Do you remember Shan Cai and the F4? Philippines has this version:
