The video reminices the Queen of Showbiz Intrigues Inday Badiday a.k.a Ate Luds. The music video is directed by Adrian Arcega of Stereodeal. The band is very proud of him as he used face-swapping technology or the “deep faking” an artificial intelligence wherein you can edit faces onto another face.

The band becomes nostalgic during the video-making as they share what are the things worth remembering during those generations, something like we have only 5 network channels, the fashion style, the brand of a comedy act by the old school comedians who perfected their craft making us laugh. Medwin shared It really the fact that slept early because there’s nothing to warch at midnight, all TV Programs signs off at 12midnight, “tulog ng lahat”.
