Mark Bautista says he still needs to see his alleged nude video that has circulated online to verify if it is really him.
“Actually, gusto kong makita yung original kung meron mang may hawak… kung talagang may hawak siyang [video].
“Hindi ko alam kung saan nila nakuha yung video na yun.
“Kung may maipakita sila na totoong video dun kasi… gusto kong makita.”
In the video, the guy, who seems to be naked, approaches and looks at the camera.
However, the clip that circulated had been plastered with a logo that covers the private area of the guy.
It was mentioned to Mark that screenshots of the guy in the video have been uploaded online.
Prodded if he is unsure whether he is the same guy in the clip, the 34-year-old singer-actor responds, “Kung makita ko naman na parang [ako, aaminin ko] kung ako.
"Kasi wala namang… kung ako talaga."
What the singer confirms is that when he was in the U.S., someone showed him a “screenshot.”
“Yun ang problema kasi nung nasa States kami nun, e, may nagpakita sa akin ng screenshot, 'Saan ba ito?'
"Gusto kong balikan kung saan ko ba ginawa ito. Hindi ko maalala," he replies.
Since he has not yet seen the video, he cannot confirm yet if it is him or not.
“I don’t even know. Kaya di ko na rin pinapansin kasi parang... parang ano ba ‘to?
“Ayoko nang pag-usapan, actually. Ayokong pag-usapan,” he says at the press conference of his upcoming musical show, Eto Na! Musikal nAPO!, Tuesday, June 26.
The musical, which will feature the hit songs of The APO Hiking Society, will run from August 3 to 26 at the Maybank Performing Arts Center, Taguig City.
BACK TO DOING ANOTHER MUSICAL PLAY. Mark is just happy to do another musical play.
He is ecstatic to sing the songs of The APO Hiking Society, the iconic OPM group, which consists of Jim Paredes, Danny Javier, and Boboy Garovillo.
Mark says, “Ang mga songs, bagay na bagay sa musical.
“Naalala ko, Danny Javier is my distant tito.”
He recounts that he did a back-to-back concert with Danny years ago and was inspired to know about their story.
This is why Mark is enthusiastic to be part of Eto Na! Musical nAPO!, a musical which is loosely based on the story of the iconic group.
Mark is also proud to work with people who excel as a group.
“Maganda lang sa musical na ‘to dahil lahat kami it’s a team effort na walang sumasapaw.
“Tinanggap ko siya dahil maganda yung songs na kakantahin ko.”
He says some of the APO songs he will perform include “Di Na Natuto” and “Nakapagtataka.”
