“Vice Ganda is a brand. It’s an image. Pero Tutoy is the person,”—during the second episode of Vice Ganda’s birthday special, “YOLO-G” on Gandang Gabi Vice, the Phenomenal Superstar decided to get real with every Kapamilya.
Aside from the star-studded line up of guests, some of Vice’s old neighbors from Tambunting St in Manila and barkada stopped by as well. Dubbed as the “Rumboys” because they used to drink rum, the comedian shared stories of how they didn’t have the money to buy shoes but would always play basketball. He described it as simpler days because they were just happy to be with friends and family. Whenever times are tough she would always look back and feel nothing but grateful, “Ang sarap bumalik doon sa lugar kung saan ka naghirap dati… ‘Yung Tambunting kung saan ako lumaki, ipinagmamalaki ko ‘yon.”
