The line "merong trip na makapangyarihan" definitely rings true for the internet, especially with the latest funny meme to go viral featuring Rico Blanco together with other OPM rock stars and their respective wives.
The meme shows known band vocalists Teddy Corpuz of Rocksteddy, and MYX Awards 2020 performers Yael Yuzon of Sponge Cola and Chito Miranda of the 2014 MYX Magna Awardee Parokya Ni Edgar, kissing their lovely wives Jasmine Corpuz, Karylle, and Neri Naig-Miranda, respectively. Meanwhile, the fourth and final image shows a photo of Rico, standing alone, taken from the "Antukin" music video with the text, "Wala talaga, as in wala."
That's right, folks! The rock icon was put in this meme as its ultimate punchline, while referencing his popular single. And because of this, the iconic singer-songwriter made sure to react in the coolest way possible.
Rico reposted the meme with the caption, "Nananahimik ako, internet," playing it cool and showing everyone that he's not really bothered by it. Naturally, the meme became even more viral as his post gained over 5,400 retweets and 44,600 likes on Twitter. Fans shared their own reactions to it and some even expressed their interest to be Korics' future significant other.

Anyway, if you can relate to the lines "wala talaga, as in wala," don't worry. As Rico says in his other song, "Ayuz" lang 'yan! Check out his epic performance of "Ayuz" at the MYX Music Awards 2010 where he even showcased some of his dance moves!
Meanwhile, feel free to watch this old-but-gold MYX Live! performance of "Antukin" here:
Be sure to catch Chito and Yael, together with many other local (and international) artists at the MYX Awards 2020 tomorrow (July 25) at 8PM, live on the MYX Philippines Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube accounts!
