Boy Pick-Up Gives Up

Two weeks ago, Boy Pick-Up (Ogie Alcasid) suffered his first defeat to Boy Basag (Ogie Alcasid) in Bubble Gang‘s ‘Pick-Up Lines’ sketch. I even predicted that the sketch will be put to pasture after that. But last night the sketch made its return, with Boy Pick-Up given a chance to redeem himself.

This time Boy Pick-Up had to go through the eliminations. His opponent was Push-Back (Boy 2 Quizon), who brought along Sukli and Bagoong (Moymoy Palaboy) as his back-ups. Like the previous sketch, Boy Back-Up (Eri Neeman) did not accompany Boy Pick-Up, instead Boy Bakla (Diego Llorico) subbed in. In another surprise move, MC Bits (Michael V) introduced a different moderator named Inday Why (Ellen Adarna). Throughout the sketch, the erstwhile moderator Neneng B (Sam Pinto) was seen in the background near Boy Pick-Up.

Like in the previous editions, the eliminations start with a game of rock-paper-scissors, something Boy Pick-Up wasn’t familiar with. Two rounds of play commenced, with Push-Back and Boy Pick-Up taking turns. But instead of the familiar ‘Bakit?’, ‘Why?’ was used throughout the pick-up rounds, hence the new moderator’s name. As expected, Boy Pick-Up won the eliminations, giving him an opportunity to redeem himself against Boy Basag, who was joined by his back-up Bisugo (Betong Sumaya).

As expected Boy Basag chose Boy Pick-Up to go first. But like in the previous sketch, no one from the audience were enthusiastic of Boy Pick-Up’s line, while Boy Basag’s was given a round of approval. After only one round, Boy Pick-Up made a surprising decision to quit, saying he does not have any more pick-up lines to offer. Eventually Boy Basag was named the winner, but not before grilling Boy Bakla with an embarrassing pick-up line.

Again I would reiterate that this sketch had run its course. The writers at Bubble Gang had finally made the realization. By telling the story about Boy Pick-Up’s ‘resignation’ from the competition, they also hastened the sketch’s ‘retirement’. For the past few days since Boy Pick-Up’s first loss I thought about the sketch as a ticking time bomb, knowing that the last few sketches will give an idea on how Boy Pick-Up would finally call it a career. Also with regards to Boy Basag, I think he became a perfect foil to the popular Boy Pick-Up, but had he been brought along earlier in last year’s Boy Pick-Up: The Movie instead of Bagwis (Dennis Trillo), it would have made sense. Still, it didn’t mask the fact that the sketch’s days were being numbered.

While I contemplate about the ‘Pick-Up Lines’ sketch and its ‘retirement’, why not you view the clip from last night below.
