The music video “Bubble” of model-actor-artist and now somewhat singer Sebastian Castro debuted in YouTube at the midnight of February 14, and it trended on Twitter, with #Bubble on the number 3 spot and #SebastianCastro at number 4. It features Castro gyrating with his dancers in a dance craze and making funny faces throughout the video.
With “Bubble” hitting 100,000 views in just three days after its release, this makes Castro somewhat of a “certified YouTube sensation” in the Philippines. His video is now being viewed across Asia and the rest of the world.
According to Castro, “Bubble is about losing your GAY virginity. Not everyone pops cherries. Some of us pop bubbles. For the last 10 years, I was dead set on creating the most upbeat, sexually-charged, musical-visual experience, one that was unafraid to laugh at itself. Until ‘Bubble’ hit YouTube, I have been closeted. All this time, music was my outlet, the one place I could say anything and everything. Music taught me how to laugh at things that once made me cry. After again nearly 10 years-in-the-making, I couldn’t be happier finally sharing my baby.”
According to Castro, his music video does not only reveal his sexy side but more than that, “it’s being honest and not being afraid to use art to express anything you desire, regardless of what the world has to say.”
Castro came out gay in an online livestream show in the Philippines called “BECKY NIGHTS” on February 18. He is currently in a relationship with someone for eight months, and who calls him “mahal.”
“Being gay isn’t a choice. Hate is,” Castro said.
