Here’s the second funny video. As we mentioned earlier, we hope to find more funny videos made by our kailiyans, upload them here, and conduct a poll towards the end of the year so you could vote for the funniest video.
Now, this video comes dangerously close to becoming offensive. It has footages of the Lang-ay Festival in Mt. Province accompanied by the Soca Boys’ song Follow the Leader. It is a cheeky video which almost crosses the line but never actually does (at least to me).
If you read the Youtube comments for this video, viewers appear to be divided with some of our kailiyans finding it funny and others finding it offensive. Here are some of the comments of those who were offended:
WGACUSANA. Your music SUCKS! Of all the music you could use, why such stupid one for a very traditional event. I think you really don’t know much about US enough to respect our music. Olay maid men upload is video adi nu kagtona abes nan maikababil. Hooo Asi asi ay!!!
a warrior from deepest part of kaigorotan will come to hunt you, whoever posted this video clips…better put the original sounds before its too late for you..
anya metten, para mo namang ini insulto yung mga dancers
And here are the comments of those who find the video to be funny:
easy there sister… personally, i don’t think it is insulting…whatever, the intensions of wgacusana was, i think the video (without the sounds) speak for itself. the sound just make it more funky. it’s is like watching mark logan’s show. it’s a good way of promoting mt province. if i may add, if i was a non-igorot, i would not watch the whole video if all i could hear is the sound of gongs.
I hope igorots won’t take this negatively. THis is a challenge to modernize igorot dances and not to criticize it. The dances have become so old that to preserve it, moves should be changed. Or else it would just become history. We should face the reality that igorot dances are slowly deteriorating.
hehehe sika met…haan met piman..bagbagay na topay …. 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
Now its your turn to share your thoughts. What do you think of this video? Did it cross the line? Does it deserve to be called the Igorot/iCordillera Funniest Video of the Year? Or should we, Igorot warriors, hunt down the one who made the video as a commenter above suggested?
