Two characters from the American sitcom Superstore spoke in *straight* Tagalog in a scene from the show’s 13th episode called “Favoritism.”
On Twitter, the show’s official account tweeted a video clip of the scene as they wrote, “Mateo and Marcus arguing in Tagalog is everything we never knew we needed.”
Mateo and Marcus’ funny AF exchange goes as follows:
Mateo: “Tarantado ka talaga!”
Marcus: “Narinig ko 'yon, gago!”
Mateo: “Kapal ng mukha mo, alam kong ikaw kumuha ng gamit ko, tumigil ka na!”
Marcus is played by Jon Barinholtz, while Mateo is portrayed by Filipino-American actor, Nico Santos. Nico starred as Oliver in the 2018 hit film, Crazy Rich Asians.
Superstore, now on its fifth season, airs on NBC and stars America Ferrera and Ben Feldman. It tells the story of a group of employees who work at “Cloud 9,” a fictional store in St. Louis, Missouri.
