Parokya's Chito Miranda proposes marriage in romantic video
MANILA, Philippines – Parokya ni Edgar frontman Chito Miranda and his girlfriend actress Neri Naig are officially engaged. Miranda posted the proposal video on his official Youtube account. The video, shot by Nice Print Photo in Angelfields Nature Sanctuary, opened with an interview with Miranda.
The singer said he had told his girlfriend she was being asked to star in a friend's music video. The video documents Miranda's elaborate preparations, from set design all the way to choosing Neri's prairie girl outfit. Neri appeared in the afternoon, and performed for the camera while Miranda bought her flowers.
The set, Miranda said, was an excuse to have the proposal documented.
“Ito yung best way na naisip ko – music video. Para hindi siya magtataka kung bakit may camera crew, may set-up, may camera, may sounds, may projector.” (This was the best way I thought of – a music video. So she wouldn’t wonder why there was a camera crew, a set-up, a camera, sounds, a projector).
Miranda's idea was to walk with Naig down a field as part of the supposed music video until he had her in front of the projector.
Neri appeared unaware of Miranda's plans until a written message appeared on the projector from Miranda – I must be the luckiest man in the entire Cavite. Neri began weeping when Miranda appeared with a bouquet of flowers. He later went down on one knee to ask for her hand in marriage.
She said yes.
The couple was embroiled in controversy last year after a sex video of him and Naig surfaced on the Internet. He has since filed a case with the National Bureau of Investigation to pin down the culprit.
Naig, who rose to fame in ABS-CBN’s Star Circle Quest, took a hiatus in showbiz before making a comeback this year. – with a report from Alexa Villano/Rappler.com
