Rebranded Eat Bulaga made a hint about their possible new theme song amid the copyright infringement case filed by Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, and Joey de Leon against Television and Production Exponents (TAPE) Inc.
In the teaser posted by TAPE Inc, they excitedly announced that their fans would hear something new on July 29 at the 44th-anniversary episode of Eat Bulaga.
“Malapit niyo na itong mapakinggan!” TAPE said in their post.
Meanwhile, a fan page for Eat Bulaga gave another hint about the surprise being prepared by the production company.
“May bagong nota, mapapakingan na ng sambahayang Pilipino sa darating na sabado,” My Sparkle Notebook page wrote.
Several observers believed that TAPE decided to change the theme song of Eat Bulaga because of the complaint filed by TVJ against them.
The current theme song of Eat Bulaga was written by Vic Sotto.
However, it was possible that TAPE Inc. may prove that they legally own the rights to the said piece if they commissioned Vic to write the song for them.
Currently, TVJ’s show E.A.T was using a different version of the said song, only replacing the word Eat Bulaga with ‘E.A.T’.
