David Licauco Goes Viral For Forgetting Tagalog Counterpart Of “Cow”

TikTok user calls David Licauco “expensive” for his Pinoy Henyo guesting!

David Licauco earns the attention of his fans for being so adorable while struggling to remember the Tagalog word for “cow!”

This happened during the “Pinoy Henyo” segment of “Eat Bulaga!” on January 2, 2022, where he played with “Maria Clara at Ibarra” brainstormer Melchor Escarcha. The pair played for the jackpot round where they have three minutes to alternately guess words given to them.

When the word “baka” was given to Licauco, he almost guessed it when he said “cow.” The audience was shouting in the studio.

Licauco was then heard asking Escarcha, “Cow ‘di ba? So, Tagalog nu’n? Anong Tagalog nu’n?” while struggling to think of the right word for at least 20 seconds!

Unfortunately, Licauco and Escarcha lost the game for not being able to guess the right word. But despite this, Licauco earned admiration from her fans and others who watched the game! In fact, different versions of the clip are making rounds on social media. One netizen even called him “expensive” for the way he answered in “Pinoy Henyo.”
