It's official: Bagani is the gift that just keeps on giving.
From being accused of whitewashing and misrepresentation, to its drop-dead Female characters and omnipresent cast member, the ABS-CBN fantasy series had been hogging the headlines even before it started airing earlier this month. As if the hit LizQuen pairing (Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil) isn't enough to secure the production a spot in the trending topics...
We're not quite sure if the team behind Bagani is simply oblivious or this is the work of a marketing genius, but last night's episode featured another TV gem that took social media by storm.
You're not watching a blooper reel. This particular dialogue where the character Dumakulem (Makisig Morales) tells Lakas (Enrique) to bring out his "malaking ibon," not once but twice in front of Ganda (Liza) and Mayari (Sofia Andres), was shown on every television set across the country. Props to the actors for having the self-control of not breaking into a smile while doing the scene.
Although the same cannot be said about the netizens, who were dumbfounded and left in tears after seeing the sly innuendo come out of Makisig and Enrique's mouths.
Truly a quotable moment
It led to people dreaming up consequent schticks
So what's this 'malaking ibon' they're talking about?
