Dialogue from an episode of fantasy television series “Bagani” has netizens laughing at the supposed powerful ’big bird’ that the character Lakas (played by Enrique Gil) was said to be hiding.

One fan, Lou Dimalaluan (@im_oxilouMD), said the dialogue in “Bagani” was truly one-of-a-kind. He quoted a line from Makisig Morales’ character Dumakulem: “Kakailanganin na natin ‘yong malaki mong ibon.” (We will be in need of your big bird.)

The full line for Dumakulem goes, “Mukhang kakailanganin na natin ‘yong malaki mong ibon. Kaya kung tinatago mo siya, ngayon na ang tamang panahon para ilabas mo ang malaki mong ibon, Lakas.

(It looks like we are in need of your big bird. If you’re hiding it, now is the time for you to take out your big bird, Lakas.)


In the scene, Lakas answers Dumakulem: “Pare-pareho lang tayong iihawin ng mga halimaw na ‘yan, may malaki man tayong ibon o wala.

(We are all going to get roasted by that beast, whether we have a big bird or not.)

Netizens began sharing the dialogue on Twitter while finding humor from what the words insinuate when taken out of context.

Netizen RedSparrow (@nemiel_lasher) asked for clarification on what big bird should Lakas bring out while citing several big birds to choose from.

Meanwhile, Race Darwin (@RaceDarwin) thought the dialogue would fit well in a bed scene.

But taken in context, Dumakulem referred to a large magical bird which Lakas has control over. Dumakulem suggested using the power of the bird to fight against their enemy. Watch the clip below to see Lakas riding a giant bird to aid Dumakulem and the hunters in putting out a fire.
