Our nights have never been the same since Cardo Dalisay took a temporary break from primetime as the COVID-19 pandemic halts the production of television series including FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano. Avid viewers of the show feel like going through a hard break-up after spending nearly five years of immersing themselves in the action-packed, gripping world of Cardo and his infuriating nemesis. But fret no more as Team Promdi remains visible on the widely-used app, TikTok.
In this season where quarantine and lockdown are strictly implemented due to a global health crisis, you have probably heard of TikTok by now especially if you are a true-blue Team Bahay. The social media application is a platform where users could play around by creating videos of any kind. Talk about the perfect cure to boredom! TikTok is an enthralling place to be funny, sexy, dramatic, show off your skills in dancing and lip synching, be an ultimate hugotero’t hugotera and many more. No wonder celebrities, including veterans like Lorna Tolentino and John Arcilla, are totally into the new craze.
Topping the list of the super villains’ most entertaining TikTok entries is a clip taken on the set of FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano. Dressed as the wicked Lily, Lorna lipsynchs a romantic hugot song beside her comatose on-screen husband, President Oscar Hidalgo played by Rowell Santiago. And still peppered with her signature treacherousness, Lily cuts the drama by wishing for Oscar’s demise in a true kontrabida fashion. Her co-star’s goofy reaction makes the scene a lot more hilarious.
Can’t get enough of CarLy? Here’s another item featuring the President and First Lady doing the Macarena Dance Challenge. The Presidential staff, helpers, and security later join them for a smile-inducing budots show. Nothing but good vibes!
With fake tears as filter, Lorna pretends sobbing over a sad song about two people tricked by destiny. The camera pans to her ultimate TikTok partner, Direk Rowell just being at par her convincing acting chops.
If he disdains being just the second best to Lily’s evilness in FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano, John Arcilla would refuse getting defeated as a TikToker, either. And his style of gaining his followers’ votes is by inviting his fellow ‘Promdis’ to join him over a fun “The Weekend Challenge.” Showing off their suave dance moves alongside Buwitre are kontrabidas Tirso Cruz III, Marc Abaya, and Lorna. Talk about a powerhouse Tik Tok cast!
Lastly, the kontrabida stars of FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano take a break from plotting insane schemes for their enemies’ downfall as they sneak in another light moment on the set. The Big Four – John, Lorna, Tirso, and Rowell – take on the “Scooby Doo Papa Challenge” while Marc is seen goofing around.
Team Promdi never fails to give us intense scenes over the past five years but when the cameras are not rolling, even the most serious actors and gigil antagonists know how to take a fun breather as well. And now that the world is going through a difficult time, their hilarious antics are a good source of positive vibes.
