More than a week after bringing us back to our childhood through their Pinoy street games-themed musical number for this year’s Magpasikat, It’s Showtime hosts and teammates Vhong Navarro and Ogie Alcasid, or collectively known as “Team VhoGie,” revisited their entry in this episode of Showtime All-access.
WATCH: Team Vhong and Ogie re-introduces “Larong Kalye” the modern, interactive way in Magpasikat 2021 number
The episode commenced with Vhong jesting that they won, yet asked Ogie why they didn’t. The latter then described the opening scene, in which both of them were seen portraying dual roles – Vhong as the son and the father, while Ogie as the other son and the mother.
“No’ng binubuo naming ‘to ni Kuys Ogie, napag-usapan kasi namin ‘yong mga nangyayari ngayon sa mga kabataan na siyempre nga, hindi na nagagawa ‘yong mga larong kalye kasi nga dahil nagka-pandemic tayo. Tapos masyado ring nag-concentrate sa mga gadgets na ang sarap ma-experience na meron kang kalaro na nakikita mo, mga kaibigan mo at kapamilya mo,” Vhong said regarding their concept.
Ogie went on to impart that they only realized later on that what they did was actually a musical, as they incorporated acting, singing, dancing, and comedy in it – which was actually not their initial intention. They also talked about how they planned the high-tech elements of their production number and made sure that they and the other performers would hit their marks in order to execute every routine flawlessly.
The OPM icon and Tawag ng Tanghalan hurado mentioned as well how thankful he is that his accident during their rehearsals was nothing serious, giving him the opportunity to perform well on the day of Magpasikat 2021.
Aside from bringing nostalgia, they also aimed to imbibe life lessons to the madlang people through their performance, such as to rise up every time we fall and carry ourselves. They indeed succeeded and that was already enough for them even though they did not win.
Vhong and Ogie, of course, didn’t forget to thank their guest performers, comprised of Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, Ebe Dancel, Jhong Hilario, Streetboys, and the singers.
