Coco enters Mr. Pogi.
MMFF entry director Mike Tuviera had the idea of the scene. Martin admitted that he didn’t think he would execute it properly.
“Honestly, kung ako po ‘yung tatanungin niyo, hindi ko talaga kinaya ‘yung eksenang ‘yun… Kasi may talent portion, eh! Wala naman akong talent, eh.”
Coco shared his struggle.
Martin noted that he couldn’t handle singing, dancing and rapping during the Mr. Pogi bit.
“Nung shinoshoot po namin talaga ‘yun… siguro lagpas yata ng sampung takes ako doon, nagpapakilala pa lang ako… Tapos, siyempre after noon, meron akong kanta, sasayaw ako, magra-rap ako. Kumbaga ‘yung nerbyos, pakiramdam ko, totoo akong sumali ng Eat Bulaga.”
Coco recalled Daisy Siete days.
Martin reminisced about his first-ever visit on Eat Bulaga. He promoted the afternoon show, Daisy Siete with SexBomb members.
“Nung nasa GMA pa ako, nakapag-visit na ako sa Eat Bulaga… Dating dati pa po. Daisy Siete days, nag-promote po kami tapos sumayaw kami. Tapos ayun po, nung nandoon ako, ayun yung parang bumabalik sa akin.”
Coco expressed his Nervousness.
Martin shared that he had to do a lot of takes due to his unease.
“Nung ginagawa na namin, shinu-shoot na namin ‘yun ay talagang parang totoo… ‘Yung nerbiyos ko, parang totoong totoong contest po. Kaya nung nandoon ako, naka-ilang takes ako tapos honestly, ‘di siya matapos-tapos ‘yung eksena ko.”
“Pero ayun, finally, pinagtiyagaan ako ng direktor. Kaya, sabi ko nga, kung merong pinaka-memorable sa akin sa buong pelikula, ‘yun po. ‘Yung sumali ako sa Eat Bulaga.”
