What you have just witnessed is a genuine work of art that is filled with pathos, depth, and a bunch of other fancy words. Truly, Angkas has outdone itself here, and we are now sitting under the tree of knowledge, reaping the benefits.
You might think you are merely looking at a jeje rap video by Angkas, but don’t be fooled: you are looking at a jeje rap video by Angkas, but one filled with the same kind of symbolism we discovered in the 2017-2018 monster hit, Ex-Batallion’s “Hayaan Mo Sila.” And while the Angkas music video is an even bigger philosophical goldmine than the entire Matrix trilogy, one thing about the video stood out to us a few weeks after seeing it: the fact that in this video, Angkas has predicted that once again, the powers that be will demand that they cease operations, despite the fact that Angkas has a 99.997% safety record. That’s even higher than the number of germs Safeguard kills, you guys!
Hidden within the video, here are 8 Easter Eggs that prove Angkas is the next Nostradamus.
8. The Shutterstock Logos
Insert network marketer standing beside this car.
If the brand’s social media team is to be believed, they actually bought the rights to these images from Shutterstock, but chose to keep the logo on for comedic purposes.
The Hidden Message: They actually did it to show how something that is right and legal could still be mistaken for wrong and illegal, like, say, their operations. Also, you can’t spell “ShutterstoCk” without “SC.” Coincidence? We think not.
7. The Little People
Great things do come in small packages.
Including the rapper himself, the Angkas video features plenty of little people.
And boy, do these little people feature prominently in the music video. What could it possibly mean? Surely, they’re not just the butt of an insensitive joke in freaking 2018, right?
The Hidden Message: The little people were us all along. Symbolizing all of us who have to deal with this current transportation crisis, Angkas is standing up for all of us, the little people who just want to find safe, reliable transportation that doesn’t charge us an arm and a leg. Deep!
6. The Flying Chicken
This might shock you, but Angkas knew that there was going to be an inevitable face-off between them and the Supreme Court.
The Hidden Meaning: Wait a minute. Did we just say… Face. Off?
It’s no flying chicken, but it comes pretty damned close. Coincidence? We certainly think not.
5. This Dance Move
It’s officially known as “The Worm,” but it could also very well be a snake.
This dance step might seem funny or dumb, depending on your mileage, but because Angkas is all about symbolism, there is so much more going on behind this than just a dance step. Trust us.
The Hidden Meaning: While the dance step is called “The Worm,” it probably refers more to a snake, and who has spoken about snakes in a prediction? Why, none other than Nostradamus himself. Here, take a look at his 19th Quatrain…
When the snakes surround the altar,
and the Trojan blood is troubled by the Spanish.
Because of them, a great number will be lessened.
The leader flees, hidden in the swampy marshes.
Take note of the third line: because of them (the snakes), a great number will be lessened. This is very important, because there are 25,000 Angkas drivers right now, and their number, which is quite a great one, is indeed in danger of being lessened. Angkas knows, man!
4. Budget Daniel Padilla
Okay, we get it: Angkas is operating from a limited budget, and can’t afford actual A-List celebrities. But why get a knockoff version of Daniel Padilla, of all possible celebrity lookalikes?
The Hidden Message: Because Daniel Padilla’s biggest song, “Nasa Iyo Na ang Lahat,” secretly refers to Angkas’s 99.997% safety record. Think about it: how close to “lahat” is 99.997%? It’s as close as it could possibly get, right? But if you think this is just a stretch, also think about the other popular lyric in the song:
Ako ang pinili sa dami
Ng ibang nirereto
Sabihin mong ako na lang
Ang kulang sa iyo, ohh…
Daniel Padilla is actually the missing 0.003% from the 99.997% safety record! Which makes sense, because his singing career is patently a disaster, but how’s that for hidden symbolism?
This Breakdancing Angkas Driver
Underwear brand redacted.
Big deal, right? It’s a music video, and in the middle of all the sexy ladies dancing, what’s the problem with seeing an Angkas driver breakdancing? Well, if you haven’t been paying attention all this time, then you should know it means so much more than just a breakdance.
The Hidden Meaning: Notice that despite breakdancing, the Angkas driver clearly never falls on his face or back, unlike every other breakdancer in the video? This is because Angkas is predicting its own eventual victory. One that should come any day now. We hope. And speaking of victory…
2. Crossing the Finish Line
Wow. Angkas gets ahead of another biker (Why not a car? Missed opportunity there, Angkas.), clears the red tape, and wins the day. So what’s the message behind this?
The Hidden Message: “Red tape” is often a term for the bureaucracy in government that makes basic stuff like getting a license or permit take ages upon ages. Angkas is saying that its quest in getting you faster is both a literal and figurative quest, because it has to break through the red tape to do it.
1. This Freaking Judge
As you can see, it can’t get any more blatant than this. Angkas predicted the Supreme Court’s meddling in the video a mere minute and five seconds in.
Complete with a judge who also looks like an executioner.
The Hidden Meaning: Hidden? Are you kidding me? The people over at Angkas are positively psychic, I tell you! They saw this TRO coming.
What do you think, yay or nay? Tell us below! (We predict a nyay.)
