Here's the Story Behind That Rain Scene in the Music Video of Zack Tabudlo's Hit 'Binibini'
Ever noticed how the pivotal part (and often the best scene) in romantic movies would involve the leads talking to each other under the rain? Think Allie and Noah’s shouting match in the movie The Notebook. Or Georgina and Primo’s intense exchange in The Hows of Us.
The rain often signifies the outpouring of emotions and the honesty between the lead characters. They are ‘washed’ and ‘stripped’ of inhibitions and everything just comes out.
In the music video of Zack Tabudlo’s hit song Binibini, the leads don’t cry or fight or separate while they’re under the rain—they dance. It’s not the usual heavy conversation. Instead, it shows the high of a budding romance.
“My favorite part would be dancing under the rain,” Zack said in an exclusive interview with Summit OG. “‘Yung una kong ni-request kay Direk Dan (Villegas) was ‘Sana matuloy ‘yung rain scene.’”
“When I wrote the song, I imagined myself with my loved one back then dancing under the rain,” Zack added.
The young singer-songwriter reveals Binibini was about a previous love. “A lot of things kind of went down throughout the relationship,” he shared. “I was very young. We were both very young. It didn’t work out.”
“But Binibini and that girl was the person that I really fell in love with,” he revealed. “I felt something super deep and super intimate with that girl before.”
Zack says he treasures everything he’s been through with his former love, which was quite evident in the music video as the whole thing was shot in reverse. It gives that if-only-I-can-turn-back-time vibe. It’s also a great way to signify looking back.
