The full music video version of ABS-CBN's Christmas station ID for 2021 has been released on November 12, 2021.
On Monday, November 8, the Kapamilya network first released the lyric video of its station ID titled "Andito Tayo Para Sa Isa't Isa."
This time, ABS-CBN launched an 18-minute music video version featuring most of its celebrities and different heroic stories from other people.
Just like every year since 2013, the Kapamilya network has been searching and interviewing ordinary people with inspirational or heroic deeds to be featured on the station ID.
For this year, the people that were featured were those who were able to do heroic deeds for others.
One of the stories featured was about a mother who did several jobs for her children. She was a Zumba instructor, UV express driver, and an online seller among other jobs.
Another was about two friends who established a restaurant in UAE that hired OFWs who lost their jobs during the pandemic.
Another story is about Gene Fernandez, a security guard who went viral after bringing fun to netizens on TikTok for his dance videos.
Among the other stories featured is about a deaf-and-mute working student who continues to help his parents while still continuing his studies.
FILIPINOS WHO BROUGHT PRIDE
There was also a part in the station ID that featured personalities who brought pride to the country.
One was Hidilyn Diaz, who won the Gold Medal at the women's 55-kg. weightlifting event at the 2020 Summer Olympics held on July 26, 2021.
Hidilyn shot a clip for the music video while wearing the official shirt bearing the station ID campaign.
Also part of the station ID were John Arcilla, who won the Volpi Cup at the Venice film fest 2021, and Arjo Atayde, who won the Best Actor award at the Asian Academy Creative Awards in 2020.
KAPAMILYA ARTISTS PRESENT AT THE MUSIC VIDEO
All the celebrities who were tapped to perform the song were shown in the music video like Sharon Cuneta, Piolo Pascual, Regine Velasquez, Ogie Alcasid, Kathryn Bernardo, Daniel Padilla, and Sarah Geronimo, among others.
Judy Ann Santos, probably the most loyal Kapamilya in the music video for being with ABS-CBN for 29 years, was the first artist shown who was not part of the singing group.
She was also the last Kapamilya artist shown in the music video before ABS-CBN executives Cory Vidanes, Mark Lopez, and Carlo Katigbak closed the video with a message.
It has been a practice for TV networks to feature its biggest star in the last frame of every station ID.
In the past ABS-CBN station IDs, Dolphy, Fernando Poe, Jr., Kris Aquino, Charo Santos-Concio, and Coco Martin were featured in these last frames.
But more recently, the very last frame shown in the Christmas station IDs are the network's executives.
Coco Martin was at least shown three times including a group frame with his co-stars in Ang Probinsyano, where he was beside Julia Montes.
Here are the artists whose frames were shown during the final rundown of A-listers (in order of appearance):

Francine Diaz had a solo frame since her love-team partner, Kyle Echarri, is inside the Pinoy Big Brother house.
Noli de Castro, who has resigned from his anchor duties in TV Patrol, also had a solo frame but inside the radio booth of his DZMM program Kabayan.
TV Patrol anchors Karen Davila, Bernadette Sembrano, and Henry Omaga Diaz's separate shots were together in one frame.
