May favorite kaming show nitong aking Soulmate, yun ay ang “Bestfriends” na pinapalabas tuwing Miyerkules Alas-Nuebe ng Gabi sa “Wednesday Lupet!!! Nights” ng IBC 13.

Ang “Bestfriends” ay show tungkol sa dalawang mag… Bestfriends! Ang magbespren na ito ay si William (played by William Thio) at si Abby (played by Abby Cruz… duh!). Si William ay may pagka-coñong yuppie, habang si Abby naman ay may pagka-tomboy na tweetums.

Ang rason kung bakit gustong-gusto namin ni Soulmate itong show na ito ay sa kadahilanang sobrang nakaka-relate kami sa mga pinagdadaanan nina William at Abby. Andyan yung mga pag-aaway, mga sweet nothings, mga kakulitan, mga kabangagan, mga ka-dramahan at kung anu-ano pang mga kasama sa “Bestfriend” package.

Madalas, we assume the roles of William and Abby. We walk a mile in their shoes. Pinag-uusapan namin yung mga isyu nina William at Abby habang pinanonood sila, talking about what should be their next move. Sa sobrang engrossed namin sa show na ito, it even came to the point na muntik na kaming mag-away! (Yun yung episode na nagalit si Abby kay William because he is willing to turn his back on her just to give way sa boyfriend ni Abby, si Paul. Of course, I take William’s side saying that it’s really hard for him to make a decision, and she takes on Abby’s side saying that it isn’t right to turn his back on her dahil lang sa boyfriend.) O, san ka pa?!

Another thing na gustong-gusto ko dito sa palabas na ito ay yung opening credits. Ang cute nilang dalawang nagkukulitan sa isang parte ng parke malapit sa dagat (location still unidentified), habang sa background ay tumutugtog ang “Accidentally In Love” by Counting Crows, ang theme song ng Show.

Counting Crows
Accidentally In Love

So she said what’s the problem baby
What’s the problem I don’t know
Well maybe I’m in love (love)
Think about it every time
I think about it
Can’t stop thinking ’bout it

How much longer will it take to cure this
Just to cure it cause I can’t ignore it if it’s love (love)
Makes me wanna turn around and face me but I don’t know nothing ’bout love

Come on, come on
Turn a little faster
Come on, come on
The world will follow after
Come on, come on
Cause everybody’s after love

So I said I’m a snowball running
Running down into the spring that’s coming all this love
Melting under blue skies
Belting out sunlight
Shimmering love

Well baby I surrender
To the strawberry ice cream
Never ever end of all this love
Well I didn’t mean to do it
But there’s no escaping your love

These lines of lightning
Mean we’re never alone,
Never alone, no, no

Come on, Come on
Move a little closer
Come on, Come on
I want to hear you whisper
Come on, Come on
Settle down inside my love

Come on, come on
Jump a little higher
Come on, come on
If you feel a little lighter
Come on, come on
We were once
Upon a time in love

We’re accidentally in love
Accidentally in love (x7)


I’m In Love, I’m in Love,
I’m in Love, I’m in Love,
I’m in Love, I’m in Love,
Accidentally (X 2)

Come on, come on
Spin a little tighter
Come on, come on
And the world’s a little brighter
Come on, come on
Just get yourself inside her

Love …I’m in love

Come to think of it, bakit kaya ganito ang theme song ng show? Sa dulo kaya ay magkaka-inlaban sila? O magkaka-inlaban sila pero hindi rin magwo-work out, kasi mas gusto nila ang “bestfriend relationship” nilang dalawa?

Isa rin itong “matter” na pinag-aawayan namin ni Soulmate. Sa kanya, okay lang na magka-inlaban silang dalawa, mas okay pa nga daw kasi magdadagdag ng “kilig factor” sa show. Ako naman, ayoko, kasi made-defeat ng scenario na yon ang purpose kung bakit “bestfriends” ang title ng show, thus making the show less interesting na kasi iba na ang story na kinukwento nito, dapat ay “lovers” na ang maging title ng show.

Whatever the outcome may be, nawa’y tanggapin ng isa’t isa ng maluwag.

A realization suddenly comes to mind. Marami na kasing nakakapagsabi (well, not actually, si Dio pa lang ata…) na para raw kaming si William at si Abby nitong aking Soulmate. From all points of comparison, medyo hawig nga si William&Abby kay JM&Belette.

Kaya naman eto ang pumasok sa aking malikot na isipan: Sa bagong layout ni Soulmate, naka-theme ito ng “Bestfriends”, with matching “Accidentally in Love” sa background. Weeks ago, gumawa ako ng Photo-Play na sabi ni Dio eh mukha raw opening billboard ng Bestfriends. Siya rin ang nagsabi na para kaming si William at si Abby. Hmmm… ano na lang ang kulang? May music, may video, may scenarios… Aha!!! Opening Credits!!!

Si Dio rin mismo ang nagsabi na kung makukunan lang daw kaming nagkukulitan sa isang parte ng parke malapit sa dagat, para na talaga kaming si William at Abby and we’ll have a run with their money already! Sabi ko sa sarili ko, bakit hindi?! Bakit hindi kami gumawa ng mala-“MUSIC VIDEO” ala Bestfriends? Hmmm…

I can see it now… si Jav ang magiging director slash scriptwriter slash production manager ng shoot. Hahanap kami ng medyo hawig na place among Roxas Boulevard or Baywalk. Tapos, si Dio ang mag-e-edit nung video, putting all his Video-Editing prowess into good use. Haaaayy… anyone open for the idea? Natutuwa daw ako.

Wala lang. ^_^
