The rise of vloggers (video bloggers) and content creators is evident in the 21st century, thanks to the innovation of technology that opened up ways for people to share their ideas and stories. Though it took a while for the Philippines to catch up, it was worth the wait because now we have local content creators to be proud of.
Among these content creators is Solid OK, a "funny Filipino comedy channel thing." The simplified description was built on the goal to create a chill, no-fuss source of funny skits and satires touching on Filipino's humor. And perhaps that's what makes Solid OK unique among the rest: their easy-to-digest sketches are a breath of fresh air in a sea of content. Check out some of our favorites (in no particular order):
Mow's Bar gets a sugoi transformation as Solid OK tells the story of two ramen-loving couple who're about to break up, but is constantly interrupted by store crew greeting "Irasshaimase" to customers. "Breakup Muna" was the channel's first sketch, which introduces us to the tone they're going for.
You click the video expecting to be scared, continue watching with no clue how it's going toend, only to burst out laughing after. It's one of the channel's longer sketches that kept us on our toes without any dead air.
No dialogues. Just your wild thoughts or blocked off ideas unraveled in this short, and still, it's a funny addition to their portfolio.
Crazy Cupid Love
Solid OK has a few entries for people with dark humor and this quick skit is their best one yet. It doesn't have a relation to the film Crazy, Stupid Love per se but it still manages to steal our attention. How far will cupid go to match soulmates?
This parody of a Jason Magbanua-style wedding video remains Solid OK's most popular video, what with two Kapamilya stars and the pang-masang humor at its core. Paired with typical melodramatic song choice and slow motion, "Aksyon DSE" will never go out of style.
Comedy works when people relate to the story and even the punchline, and that is where Solid OK thrives. It's the same reason why their videos became viral and why a handful of notable comedians agreed to collaborate.
We're crossing our fingers to see more of their content in the coming years. Which one is your favorite so far?
