#MusicPH - Watch sci-fi inspired music video for Rico Blanco’s “Palibot libot”

The music video for Rico Blanco's current single, "Palibot libot," released under Sony Music Entertainment, tackles science fiction themes.

The images, directed by Cris Escolano and Rico Blanco himself, tell a tale of humanity in a hopelessly bleak world. Model Tuti Pon, robotic character "The Entity," and actor Rico Blanco all appear in the music video.

According to Pon, she had fun playing the female lead and embracing the intricacies needed to pull off her character convincingly. “It was definitely a new experience for me and I’d do it again if I got a chance.” 

Production Designer Justine Arcega-Bumanlag expressed enthusiasm in working with the team and conveying the fantastically imaginative vision of the material. She shares, “For this, Rico Blanco was aiming for a classic-looking music video that stands the test of time. He wanted to veer away from CGIs, so we started building a set that looks like a wreckage from an unknown planet, and using it all throughout the time.”

The character from a series that he filmed in La Union last year served as the inspiration for the song, which examines the ambiguity that exists between friendship and relationship. The song is blunt about the truth of love, with its narrative "anchored precariously on someone's steadfast loyalty," if only on one side: It isn't constantly synchronized. It has drawbacks, but that is part of its allure.

“Palibot libot” will be part of Rico Blanco’s fourth studio album to be released under Sony Music Entertainment.
