Citizens of the world wide web especially those who are spending most of their time lurking in social media sites are discussing an old video clip since last Thursday. It’s a brief video belonging to the GMA Supershow, which was among the best running Sunday noontime shows in the Philippines.
Mariz Ricketts and Maricel Laxa were the hosts of the said show where they presented Kris Aquino as well as her then love-team partner “funny man” the late Rene Requiestas. The duo were teamed up in the movie Pido Dida back in the 90s. Mariz introduced, “Let’s have a duet number from the newest team to beat in the box office…”
The viewers starts to clap while the two enter the stage. Pido and Dida waved gladly not being aware of what was to happen. Lo and behold, as Requiestas was on the way down the stairs, Kris accidentally fell down on the side.
It’s apparent in the video clip that the stage wasn’t properly built as the part where Kris stumbled down appeared as if it was only constructed from something fragile like paper. The only strong and stable portions of the stage were the center part as well as the sides, which Rene was lucky to walk in to.
After Kris fell down, Rene and several of the staff quickly leaped in to assist the host get free from the hole.
DJ Mo Twister also shared the video on his Instagram account using the caption, “I would still be hurting if something like this happened to me.#krisaquino #throwback”.
As of this moment, Kris Aquino hasn’t yet responded to the revival of her falling video.
