DOTA or girlfriend?
With Netflix releasing the sequel to the viral 2011 song DOTA o Ako?, social media users who got LSS-ed with Aikee and Vanessa’s hit years ago finally got the closure they need from the open-ended music video.
On Facebook and YouTube, the popular streaming site uploaded the video of the Dota at Ako, reuniting Aikee and his onscreen girlfriend Vanessa; finally answering the girlfriend’s question in the music video that immediately went viral back then for echoing the sentiments of every girl whose boyfriend was obsessed with the popular game.
In the sequel that was set 10 years later, the couple is seen taking their relationship to the next level; a partnership that has grown stronger as they continue to relish the game together.
“Salamat at nakapili ka na,” Vanessa expressed in one of her parts in the Dota at Ako video. “Masaya ako para sa ating dalawa. Lalong lumawak ang pagmamahalan at parehas nating inabot ang hangganan. Sa ating tatahakin, palaging babaunin ang gaan ng dalahin ng ating damdamin. Gusto kong pasalamatan ka sa lahat at maligaya akong ipagtapat…ang pinili ko, DOTA at ako.”
Aside from the nostalgia brought by the song’s sequel and the music video’s old school format, netizens found closure and some lessons in the sequel.
“The closure we needed,” Justin Kyle Lozano Cortez wrote. “Dekada pala aabutin para masagot iyong tanong. Puwede pala both.”
“Napaka-cute naman!” Janna Raven Mabuan commented. “Dota o Ako was my favorite song when I was a kid! Even memorized every rap verse. So glad that they ended up together after a long time.”
“Love how the video effects were the same as it was in the first one. It adds that extra kick of nostalgia,” Red Ty said.
While Cyrus Ace Irving encouraged others, “Revisit your decisions 10 years ago and find out whether it would change something.”
As of writing, the video already has more than 800,000 views on YouTube and over three million views on Facebook.
