Filipino netizens mad over variety show’s joke about Rain’s appearance

Filipino KPop fans were enraged against GMA Network’s variety show Party Pilipinas last September 19, Sunday, after the hosts claim that Korean idol Rain will appear on the show. The viewers, however, were dismayed to see that instead of an actual Rain (who held a concert in Manila a week prior), singer Mark Bautista appeared on stage while being doused by raining water. A caption then appeared, “Sabi sa inyo may Rain eh (We told you there’s going to be Rain).”

Although it was supposed to be a show of humor, not everybody got the memo as Pinoy netizens reacted violently on Twitter and Facebook. Comments include:

“Walang budget ang Party Pilipinas for Rain. Damn! Pathetic! Buti pa ASAP XV Flo Rida na-guest nila. Winner!” (Party Pilipinas does not have the budget to bring Rain, unlike (rival variety show) ASAP XV that brought Flo Rida as guest.)

“WTF! I didn’t like what Party Pilipinas did about the RAIN thing! It’s like they’re DESPERATE TO GET HIGH RATINGS! I’m upset!!!”

“Masyadong maraming pakulo ang Party Pilipinas na yan kasi they have nothing much to offer.” (That Party Pilipinas has so many gimmicks because they have nothing much to offer.)


“Kainis! Ia-announce ko na pa naman sana sa mga Asian friends ko. Buti na lang hahaha di ko tinuloy.” (I’m pissed! I was supposed to announce it to my Asian friends. Good thing I didn’t do it hahaha.)

The joke is reminiscent of the lengths of some variety shows in the past did to lure viewers. One show claimed that they were “Live in Hong Kong,” only to show their hosts speaking their lines in front of a chroma screen with images of Hong Kong being displayed on the background.
