“Iyong character ko sumali ako ng fraternity, nag-Oblation Run kami, tumakbo kami nakahubad talaga sa Parks and Wildlife ng 4 a.m. naman para walang masyadong tao, pati si (Jayson Gainza). Kaming dalawa totoo. [We just covered our genitals with our hands pero ibi-blur ‘yon pag-air sa TV kasi bawal ‘yon.] So ‘yon yung mga ginagawa namin para sa show na ito,” Prats explained.
Also in the interview, Prats said that he is playing the character of Joseph who is a good friend to Gainza and Marudo and also plays a very responsible brother to his all-girl siblings.
Prats said that it was series director Mr. Randy Santiago who thought of bringing the three of them together again in a show after their hit trio for the defunct sitcom “Aalog-Alog.”
“At si Direk Randy kasi grabe talaga ‘yong passion niya at siya talaga ‘yong nag-isip na tatlo kami, trio, so malaki din ‘yong pasasalamat namin sa kanya.,” he added.
Also known as “Tiny Tony,” Prats said that he is really excited to be part of a television series that will not only bring laughter but will also touch the heart of everybody as well.
“Masayang masaya ako ngayon. Siguro ngayon mas seryosong [makulit] kasi sa ‘Aalog-Alog’ para lang kaming naglalaro. This time mas-seryoso kaming nagpapatawa, wala kayong makikita na tumatawa kami every scene. [Dito] nakakatawa ‘yong eksena pero seryoso naming ginagawa ‘yong nakakatawang eksena iyon ‘yong ginagawa naming approach sa show,” he said.
The actor said that compared to “Aalog-Alog” their new show is more serious since they have their own crying moments.
“Iyong ginagawa ni Direk Randy ay ‘yong mga na kakatawang nangyayari kapag nagkukuwentuhan ‘yong barkada ‘yong sitwasyon na talagang totoong nangyayari,” he adds.
In terms of production, “Parekoy” is bigger since it is being taped outside the studio unlike their previous sitcom.
”At the same time hindi kami studio so mas labas kami at more pressure kasi araw-araw magpatawa kami so iyon ‘yong nakaka-pressure doon.”
