So Alden Richards as Chef Boy Next Door did a pole dance at Sunday Pinasaya today. And I needed to be revived.
When I finally recovered, I realized that I kinda had my wish granted real soon. Yesterday, Alden sang Bamboo’s Hallelujah and I Tweeted this:
Alden is singing Hallelujah. My fandoms colliding again. Isa na lang Alden, kanta o sayaw ka ng song ni Rain, please? #ALDUBLolasInConcert

By ‘fandoms colliding’, I meant Alden sang a rock song. I used to be in the OPM rock scene (which explains why this blog’s domain name is ‘bandstalker.com’). While he didn’t sing nor dance to a Rain song today, Alden did something that Rain used to do: pole dancing.

Except that there’s a part that shocked me: Alden did it better, because he actually rode the pole. Unlike Rain who merely touched it.

Whadya know. Rain is the legitimate professional dancer, but Alden one-upped him at pole dancing. I never saw that coming.
This is not the first time that Alden reminded me of Rain, though. For example:
No wait, not that one. That’s just painful. Bakit ba kasi may bench at bike riding date scene, Direk Mike??!
As soon as I saw Alden in that black rolled-up sleeve made to look sleeveless shirt, that image of Rain at Fugitive Plan B immediately rolled into my mind.
Of course, let’s not forget this:
If we can only see Alden do a Rain on that one…
I’m perfectly fine seeing Alden “copy” Rain once in a while. Isa lang ang huwag na huwag mong kokopyahin sa kanya, RJ. Na-orient ka na siguro tungkol dun.
