At the 2:16 mark of the video, the actress goes on a monologue and asks why the local government officials prioritize the distribution of aid among those who “are not deserving,” starting with single parents. The script includes lines like, “Single parent, e multiple ang kalandian niyan,” “Multiple benefits ‘yan!” “Daming kabit niyan,” and “May ka-chat pang afam.”

“Vincentiments” and even the director’s name “Darryl Yap” were both trending topics on Twitter. Candy has reached out to the team of Vincentiments for a statement. Yap later on issued a director's note via their Instagram account.

Vincentiments is a project of SAWAKAS, a theater group founded by Yap. The project went viral for producing short films inspired by hugot culture, like the 2018 short video Jowable which was later on adapted into a book and a film.
