Actress-turned-vlogger Ivana Alawi recently posted a hilarious vlog where she pranked her editor, photographer, and videographer Jeff Ibera on his birthday. Her vlog made rounds on social media for it was funny at the beginning but eventually elicited emotional vibes in the latter part.
She shared at the beginning of the video that they consider him, and everyone who works for her, part of the family. According to her, Jeff has been working with them for a year already and she described him as a very hardworking person who’s very easy to work with as their minds seem to always connect when it comes to editing her vlogs.
Since this is the case, she didn’t spare him from getting pranked on his birthday – a seemingly running tradition in the Alawi household. Thus, in order to flawlessly execute it, she sought the help of their Mama Fatima, her siblings Hash and Mona, and their other angels at home, and they came up with the idea of Ivana pretending to be annoyed at during their pseudo-photoshoot.
Being someone who doesn’t used to getting mad nor treating people unfairly, Ivana tried her best to make Jeff believe that she’s seriously irritated by scolding him and even her family throughout the “pictorial.” Initially displaying her disappointment, she told Jeff that she didn’t like the photos he took because of the bad lighting and how she didn’t look good in any of his shots.
Afterwards, she pretended being in a bad mood because of a phone call and went on to act as if she’s directly mad at Jeff, saying that he’s seemingly not taking the shoot seriously. She disdainfully declared backing out of their session and went back inside their house, which made him totally scared and worried.
Not long after, she went out of the pool area again singing ‘Happy Birthday’ to Jeff while holding a cake. She carefully approached him and announced that the whole thing was only a prank and they simply want to surprise him on his birthday. This made him instantly emotional as he admitted truly getting scared of Ivana. She apologized to him and explained that they just did that since he’s already considered part of their family. Aside from that, Jeff got surprised further when Ivana gave him a brand-new phone! He went on to become more emotional as he expressed how grateful he is for it and shared that he never experienced something like that in his past birthdays, which he doesn’t usually celebrate in a festive way.
