WATCH: Yeng Constantino and friends prank Filipino TNV driver in Hawaii
Yeng Constantino took to her YouTube account last July 2 to share a vlog about a funny chance encounter she and fellow Cornerstone artists KZ Tandingan, Moira dela Torre, Erik Santos and Daryl Ong experienced while recently in Hawaii.
Her vlog began with her waking up in her hotel room and telling her viewers that she and her fellow artist friends would be meeting up in the lobby to go to a Japanese restaurant. The five were in Hawaii that time for the Honolulu show of ASAP, where they were slated to appear.
The group of friends soon met up and, after a few minutes of waiting, finally got inside their Uber car to go to the restaurant. This was when they realized they had a fellow Filipino as their driver.
While driving, the driver mentioned in passing the ASAP Honolulu show, unaware during the entire time of the identity of his passengers.
Constantino and the rest played along, with Santos asking the driver, “Andun ba si Erik Santos? Idol ko yun eh. Ang gwapo nun…”
Another one, seemingly Tandingan, quipped, “Si Yeng Constantino po kaya andun?”
The friends continued with their charade and asked the driver manifold questions about themselves. “Kilala niyo po si KZ Tandingan? Ay hindi po. Si Moira ho kilala niyo? Si Daryl Ong ho?”
“Hindi rin,” the unassuming driver answered back.
Meanwhile, Constantino decided to target Santos and said, “Ang sama ng ugali nung Erik Santos. Nag pa autograph ako…”
“And bait kaya nun!” countered Santos defensively.
“Mabaho lang hininga,” Constantino said in jest.
Santos then told the driver they should take a picture after the ride. “Kuya mamaya po pa picture tayo, tapos pakita niyo sa misis niyo.”
Someone from the group asked again, “Ano pong song ni Erik Santos alam niyo?”
“Wala,” the driver said as the group laughed loudly.
It didn’t take long for them to reach their destination. But as they arrived at the Japanese restaurant, the driver, seemingly having caught on to their prank, turned around from his seat and, upon seeing Constantino, asked with a sheepish smile, “Si Yeng?”
It was a funny yet heartwarming moment, and the group made sure to take a selfie together with the driver before leaving.
The ASAP in Honolulu show, where the group of friends appeared, turned out to be a huge success. The show, however, was not shown live and is expected to air on television this Sunday, July 8.
