The theme song of FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano, Gary Valenciano's popular cover of Sugarfree's "Wag Ka Nang Umiyak," is always one to tug on your heartstrings. Yet, it has even become an object of viral videos, being plugged into clips of Hollywood movies, series, and animated pictures as a hilarious background song. While we have yet to ask its original composer Ebe Dancel on how he's feeling towards his work's increasing popularity, we went ahead and gathered some of the funniest video edits currently making the rounds and spreading good vibes online!
1. Spiderman 3. The song climaxed right when an unmasked Spider-Man went to save a people-filled train about to fall from the tracks. We could imagine Peter Parker crying, "Kapit lang mga bes!"
2. Train to Busan. Already a tearjerker as is, hit zombie movie Train to Busan could further crush your heart with this alternate ending.
3. Mr. Bean. The British clown's antics met another lowlight as he fell down this sloped road, with Gary V singing in the bg, of course!
4. Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince. Our hearts were already Avada Kedavra-ed with Dumbledore falling to his death. The memorable scene was made more dramatic here with...
5. Finding Dory. One of the most iconic shots in this recent animated movie perfectly played out with this melancholic tune.
6. Big Hero 6. The Saddest. Goodbye. Ever.
7. Stranger Things. We could also see the song being a good fit for sci-fi!
8. Grand Theft Auto. How about OPM finding itself played in computer games? In fact, this scene from GTA 5 looked like an animated version of Ang Probinsyano!
9. Star Wars. Think you got sad when Kylo Ren killed his own father? Try watching it again...
10. The Flash. The dialogue, the tension, the stabbing and the screaming that followed. This instrumental-laden scene of Barry's dad being killed looked like it was really made in the Philippines!
