Lola Amour nag-sorry sa inilabas na teaser ng music video ng ‘Raining in Manila’
HUMINGI ng paumanhin ang OPM Band na Lola Amour dahil sa naging presentasyon ng kanilang music video teaser ng hit song na “Raining in Manila”.
Sa kanilang X (dating Twitter) account, naglabas ito ng pahayag hinggil sa pangyayari.
“Hey guys! We just want to say that we hear you and we understand your disappointment,” pahayag ng Lola Amour sa kanilang tweet nitong Huwebes, Oktubre 26.
Pagpapatuloy pa niya, “We were not sensitive enough about how the teaser was presented, and with that, we are sorry. We do hope you give the MV a chance as it was greatly misrepresented by the teaser.”
Noong Martes, October 24, naglabas ng 30-seconder teaser ang Lola Amour para sa kanilang hit song.
Ngunit umani ng mga negatibong komento mula sa netizens ang naturang teaser video.
Giit ng iba, tila masyadong na-romanticize ang kahirapan sa inilabas na teaser ng Lola Amour.
“mga bata, hindi ganyan kasaya sa mga tao sa manila pag umuulan. alam niyo ba mga pilipino kahit saan, kahit di taga manila, takot na takot maulanan? and also, di lang sila nagrereklamo overtly pero inis na inis sila pag umuulan at nasa daan. sobrang hirap,” saad ng isang netizen.
Commen naman ng isa sa teaser ng “Raining in Manila”, “The struggles of real people is not an aesthetic for you to exploit and then wash your hands from once you’re done. Poverty porn pa more.”
“Hala sya bat nmn ginawang aesthetic ang poverty/swatters area,” sey naman ng isa.
Ipinaliwanag naman ng Lola Amour ang konteksto ng kanilang music video.
“It’s about a man who reconnects with his long lost wife through a magic gecko, all set in an alternate timeline where it has been raining for already 1427 days,” pagbabahagi ng indie band.
May ilang X users naman ang nagsabing walang mali o masama sa naturang teaser ng Lola Amour.
“I did watch the music video. I agree, at first I thought it was tone def and insensitive but idk, I watched the video and it was not even focused on the baha or ulan. I feel like it is a work of fiction with bits of reality lang. I suggest you watch it too,” sey ng isa.
Pag-explain naman ng isa sa MV ng Lola Amour, “i get why people r mad sa qrts, when this first dropped, medj off rin sakin. but when i watched the mv, it was clear na the bagyo & baha were used as a metaphor for the longing and sadness felt which is the same analogy used sa song, a concept that’s been done so many times na.”
