With their Vivamax film Ang Manananggal Na Nahahati Ang Puso now available for streaming online, Beks Battalion is proud of finally getting their biggest role onscreen this year. The comedic trio composed of Chad Kinis, Lassy Marquez, and MC Muah Calaquian play roles that were specially tailor fit for them by writer and director Darryl Yap.

According to Lassy, they had so much fun shooting the film on the Siquijor island that the only challenge for them was wearing their costumes.

“Medyo nahirapan lang kami, kasi mahirap magsuot ng ilang kilong costume. Lalo na yung buhok namin sobrang bigat tapos ipit na ipit sa ulo habang ume-eksena ka. Napakachallenging din nun kasi pag kikilos ka kailangan hindi mahulog kasi baka maging cause of delay pa. Ingat na ingat kami sa bawat kilos namin pero ibibigay namin ng bongga ang bawat eksenang gagawin namin. Yun lang naman ang medyo nahirapan kami dun,” he said.

Even with the country still under lockdown, MC Muah shared why Beks Battalion will never lose their inspiration for doing comedy and entertaining people.

“Pag nasanay ka na komedyante for so many years, parang hindi nag-sa-stop because of pandemic eh. Pag yung puso mo mahal mo, gusto mo yung ginagawa mo, parang gagawa ka at gagawa ng paraan, kung online man yan or kung saan man, ma-express mo yung talent mo. So dun kami siguro humuhugot ng lakas kasi in love kami sa ginagawa namin, sa pagpapasaya sa tao at saka yun na nga lang ang puwede namin ibigay, ipagdadamot pa ba namin? So talagang all out kami sa ganun,” he shared.

Lassy said that their group sympathizes with those who are having a hard time during the pandemic and hope their comedy can give some comfort to their fellow Pinoys.

“Alam naman natin na sobrang nakakalungkot talaga dahil pandemya ngayon, ang daming nagkakasakit, ang daming naghihirap, ang daming hikahos. So humuhugot kami sa mga followers namin, sa mga subscribers namin, sa mga taong nagmamahal sa amin, sa pamilya namin. Humuhugot kami ng lakas doon. Bilang komedyante na nasimulan namin noon noon pa, ito yung time na dapat huwag tayong sumuko. Magbigay tayo ng saya sa mga taong nalulungkot para maka-survive pa rin sa kalungkutan. Kasi sobrang hirap na, naghihirap ka na malungkot ka pa so mahirap talaga. Alam namin natin matatapos din ito pero andito kami para gabayan din at bigyan ng saya yung mga taong nanunuod sa amin. Hindi kami titigil sa pagpapasaya,” Lassy explained.
