Aljur Abrenica on SOP
Ay naku, another poor concept. I don’t know, is it just me? Do we really want to get entertained by the “fathers”?
That’s the problem with following all these calendar days to conceptualize your programming. I don’t know how many of us take Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, Secretaries Day, Postal Workers Day, etc. seriously in our daily lives. Just because some organization is telling us that we should be nice to a certain group of people on a certain day, we should follow. This is just commercialism blurred into our culture — Father’s day was established so we have a reason to buy gifts — a lot of us fail to realize why we are celebrating these “days” in the first place. Just like Christmas — I am nice to people around me every single day of the year (naks) not just in December. At any rate, because SOP is forcing themselves to celebrate Father’s Day artificially, we now have a production number with middle-aged men who are living their showbiz fantasies via their sons. That’s well and good — but is it entertainment???
