WATCH: The Itchyworms x Boboy Garovillo - "Ano Ang Ibig Mong Sabihin"

Not since Pretty In Pink and Ferris Bueller's Day Off have we witnessed a golden lip-sync moment in movies, jammed with iconic performances that represent the youthful energy of the characters inhabiting John Hughes’ realm of ‘80s teenage ennui and twee. Marie Jamora’s Ang Nawawala, more than referencing Stephen Frears and Wes Anderson movies, also paid tribute to John Hughes by way of Gibson (played by Dominic Roco) lip-synching, dancing and doing air-guitar to Apo Hiking Society’s “Ano Ang Ibig Mong Sabihin.” It’s one of the many highlights in Marie’s hyper-indulgent, scenester-meme awesomeness, reminding us that hipsters too, have an ability to track down rare-find classics that your mamas and papas wouldn’t mind dancing to.

Imagine the collective glee and excitement that followed at the Ang Nawawala victory party when The Itchyworms called Boboy Garavillo of Apo Hiking Society to come up on stage and jam to this year’s finest musical moment this side of repackaged John Hughes. Jugs and Boboy sang “Ano Ang Ibig Mong Sabihin” with enthusiasm that matches the original’s lovesick plea, and got the crowd fist-pumping and cheering to such memorable and blissed out performance.
