As they never failed to fill our noontime viewing with laughter through their hilarious banters and antics, the same happens for the It’s Showtime family off-cam and backstage! And just recently, Vice Ganda gave us a glimpse of their adorable bond through the latest vlog he uploaded on his YouTube Channel.
On that video, he staged a droll prank for his co-hosts with the help of his friends and boyfriend Ion Perez, wherein he would make them believe that he prepared a spontaneous surprise for each one of them, complete with cakes, balloons, bouquet of flowers, and a heartfelt speech from the Unkabogable Star. And as soon as they’ve already gotten into it, Vice would reveal in the end that it was actually for another person and they are just there to commence the vlog and invite them to join their shenanigan.
The first victim was Amy Perez, who was then already suspicious since she always falls as a victim to Vice’s mischiefs, yet she still got emotional. The same went for Kim Chiu, who still cried despite already sensing that it’s a prank on the onset. As soon as he revealed that her intuition was true, she couldn’t help but jestingly nag him and heeded to his invitation of surprising their next target.
Unlike the first two victims, Karylle was seemingly relaxed and did not even shed a tear as Vice, Kim, and Tiyang Amy entered her dressing room and did the same to her. Thus, their prank on her was, unfortunately, an epic fail.
Next was Ryan, who also immediately got emotional upon seeing the gang and hearing the sappy message of his Mama Vice. He then went on to accompany him in pranking Vhong Navarro, who pointed a hair blower on the Unkabogable Star as soon as he approached him and started to deliver his touching speech. Just like the previous victims, he wasn’t able to hold his emotions as well as he got teary eyed only to be pranked by the two.
He, Vice, and Ryan then headed to the office of It’s Showtime executive producer Rose Casala and business unit head Leilani Gutierrez who were also both astonished and touched by the fake surprise. The same went for Teddy Corpuz who was already on the verge of crying as his speech reminded him of the challenges and happy moments they shared in the past 11 years.
Last, but definitely not the least, was Ate Girl Jackque Gonzaga, who was the most emotional of them all as she couldn’t help herself from weeping upon seeing them and hearing the heart-melting message of the Unkabogable Star.
And as his way of compensating the emotions exuded by his beloved It’s Showtime in his prank, they gave each one of them deluxe cakes in posh tin cans – which is his favorite – that he ordered from actress-entrepreneur Maricar Reyes-Poon and attached a note saying, “sincerely and seriously you are appreciated”.
“In reality, sa totoong buhay naman talaga ay gusto ko silang sabihan ng salamat. Gusto kong iparamdam sa kanila na naa-appreciate ko sila sa friendship namin, sa pagiging family namin, sa maliliit at malalaking bagay na ginagawa naming sa isa’t isa. Sa sobrang busy naming lahat, ‘di na kami nakakapag-‘thank you’ ng maraming pagkakataon. Pero ‘pag may chance, gusto kong mag-‘thank you’ at iparamdam sa kanila na naa-appreciate ko sila,” he stated.
