‘Dalagang Pilipina’ Challenge? Easy! We Filipina girls always have our duck faces and cute smiles ready!
I’m sure we all have seen it: people posing with funny faces into the camera while ‘Dalaga’ by Allmo$t plays in the background. And we can’t get enough of it! Here’s why we think it’s so hilarious.
‘Dalaga’ was a song sung by Allmo$t which was released last year. People liked the song as it is emblematic of men’s love for the ever beautiful Filipinas. The song talks about being eager to find that Filipina that the singer fell in love with through social media.
When some heard this song, they thought that it would be a great way to present real Filipina beauty. As a result, a challenge arose in an app called TikTok, where people made videos of themselves with this background music. Here’s a compilation of the first challenges made!
Hundreds of beautiful Filipina girls couldn’t help but perch in on the ‘Dalagang Pilipina’ challenge at first. This song was the perfect background music for projecting in the camera and showcase what true Filipina beauty is!
That was until a Facebook user named Mimi uploaded this hilarious video of her doing the challenge, and I’m telling you, it is such a mood!
Mimi is every one of us, really, and people are loving her! She actually gave the challenge a much wider scope. Who says we (the average looking majority, lol) can’t perch in? After this video has gotten viral, everyone can now join the ‘Dalagang Pilipina’ challenge!
Tons of memes have also been created from just this short clip. You can’t really limit how humorous the Pinoy can be!
And these are just some of the examples! I guess the funny girl beat all the beautiful ones in this case because out of all the videos made, this was the one that went viral! Can you believe that the video already had about 4 million views! People went in and followed after Mimi’s version of the Dalagang Pilipina Challenge from then.
Even famous celebrities did it!
The challenge was also made a staple in one of It’s Showtime’s segments. It all started with a showtime dancer doing the said challenge in the segment.
I guess what makes this challenge so entertaining is that all of us can do it, young and old. And of course, Mimi didn’t waste the chance to give us a tutorial on her signature poses. Watch it here!
