All is fair in love and war, but that doesn’t make it any easier. That’s exactly what the character of James Reid conveyed in the “Para Sa Mga Ex” music video.
James starred as a brokenhearted young man struggling to move on in the newly launched music video of Zack Tabudlo’s single “Para Sa Mga Ex.” While it’s not the first time that James has brought to life an emotionally wretched persona on screen, this one sure hits differently.
“Get ready to eat yo feelings,” wrote James on his Instagram update about the song’s release, before simply describing his role as a sad boy.
He went on to congratulate Zack, saying, “Thanks for traumatising me @zack.tabudlo 😂 Congrats brotha!”
But don’t be fooled by Zack’s creamy vocals and the MV’s dreamy color scheme: by the song’s midpoint, James would unleash all the bottled pain of a shattered heart. And right when you thought he had calmed down and let it all go, James silently breaks down as soon as the credits roll, showing just how nonlinear and sporadic grief could be.
