1999 Vs 2019: ITCHYWORMS And ELY BUENDIA Take On #20YearChallenge!

The #10YearChallenge a.k.a. #HowHardDidAgingHitYouChallenge is currently taking the internet by storm! Worldwide, people have been posting their photos from a decade ago to compare it with their "fresh" pictures now, including our local artists!

The Itchyworms has hopped on the hype train with Ely Buendia—but with a twist! Instead of posting a throwback photo from just ten years ago, the guys behind the hits "Pariwara" and "Lutang" posted one from two decades ago!

The first picture gives us a peek at their younger versions, donning oversized 90's shirts and hairstyles with sticker-filled electric guitars; while the second one shows their current selves, wearing sleek blazers and glasses, and the most evident change of all—Ely's blonde hair. Obviously a joke about their age, the post was captioned, "2008/2009 vs 2019."

Revealing the real year on their second post, The Itchyworms wrote, "Unahan na namin yung 20 year challenge! 1999 vs 2019. Sino dito nakapunta sa mga gigs namin 20 years ago?"

Vocalist and guitarist Jugs Jugueta also posted his own entry and his use of the hashtag #AyokongTumanda is just perfect!

These photos are not just an early Throwback Thursday treat for us, but also a nostalgic tease! The two artists are having a joint major concert this February 9 at the Newport Performing Arts Theater in Resorts World Manila, titled "Ely Buendia & The Itchyworms: Greatest Hits."
