An old video clip of Karylle and Heart Evangelista performing in SOP is going viral online.

SOP is GMA-7's defunct Sunday noontime variety show, which aired from 1997 to 2010.

On April 8, 2020, Twitter user @vicentejian uploaded the clip on his account as a reply to a Twitter thread started by netizen @AltABSCBN about "memorable Philippine showbiz eksena."

The video is a clip from SOP in 2008 showing Karylle singing the Pinoy novelty version of Beyonce's song, "Irreplaceable."

The Pinoy version uses the title "Disposable," and was originally recorded by an unnamed group of girls and rappers.

The original first verse of "Irreplaceable" goes: "To the left, to the left / Everything you own in the box to the left."

The Filipino lyrics, which Karylle performed, go: "Kaliwa, kaliwa / Umiiyak ang puso at ikaw ang may gawa."

The chorus was translated into Tagalog as well, but no longer as direct translation of the English lyrics.

The last part of the chorus goes: "Wala kang kwentang lalake / Mahilig kang mambabae / Anong akala mo sa akin, Marijuana / Pagkatapos mong gamitin iiwanan na disposable"

Its original English lyrics go:

"You must not know about me / You must not know about me / I can have another you by tomorrow / So don't you ever for a second get to thinking / You're irreplaceable"

Heart then went onstage and sang the English chorus of "Irreplaceable," while Karylle sang the Tagalog lyrics.

As of this writing, the Twitter video clip has already more than 600K views, 5K retweets, and 28.6K retweets.

The original YouTube video of Karylle and Heart's performance was uploaded on July 2008.

It shows Heart opening the performance with the English version of "Irreplaceable."

After Heart finishes the first chorus, Karylle enters the stage and sings the Tagalog version.

The two girls end the production number with a duet of both the English and Tagalog versions of Beyonce's song.

Back then, Heart had just transferred to GMA-7 after being an ABS-CBN talent. Heart remains a Kapuso talent until today.

Meanwhile, Karylle left GMA-7 in November 2008, just a few months after her SOP performance.

NETIZENS' REACTIONS TO "DISPOSABLE" VIDEO CLIP

Karylle and Heart's SOP performance was quickly picked up by netizens.

Most of the comments poked fun at the "marijuana" part of the Tagalog version's lyrics:
