Remembers when Claudine Barretto tripped then cursed on live TV. Click the link below to watch.
This unfortunate accident happened during the live airing of “A.S.A.P Mania” on ABS-CBN back in April 13, 2003. This was at the height of Claudine Barretto’s popularity. It wasn’t so much that she tripped that was shocking but what she exclaimed right after. The clip doesn’t show how she recovered from it but it seems she maintained her composure and quickly apologized to the audience. I don’t see how the production team could have possibly salvaged that.
Remembers Peck Piñon, especially the Peck Piñon Art Gallery. There was one in Ali Mall in Cubao and one in SM North Edsa. I had not known that he was a composer, an actor, and a comedian who went by the screen name, “Tugak”. Apparently, he was already painting billboards before he became an actor.
The BMX movie “Rad” was shown in local cinemas but the producers had to change the title to “Helltrack”. It was one of the first movies of Lori Loughlin and sure enough, every hot-blooded male teenager during that time had a crush on her.
While it was a box-office disaster in the US, it gained a lot of fans in the Philippines. When it came out as “Helltrack” in the moviehouses, a lot of kids had already seen it in Betamax.
Watch the trailer for “Rad” below:
In the same year, the skateboard movie, “Thrashin'” was released starring Josh Brolin. Again, the producers thought that no one in the Philippines knew what “thrashin'” meant so they changed the title to “Challenge to Win”. The movie featured then relatively unknown Los Angeles band, the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Like “Rad”, “Thrashin'” achieves cult status in the Philippines.
