What Waze told Rufa Mae Quinto after her ‘audition’ vlog
It appears that Rufa Mae Quinto’s hard work paid off as a GPS navigation app heard her on Thursday.
Previously, the actress-comedienne posted her first vlog, which granted her fans’ requests: She “auditioned” to be the navigation voice for Waze.
Upon posting her video, it drew laughs and gave good vibes to netizens. So far, her vlog reached virality with 948,000 views and 28,000 likes and reactions on Facebook.
As Quinto gave it her all during the vlog, it appeared that the navigation app also noticed her video. They then took to Twitter to reply to her “audition tape.”
“Hey @rufamaequino, no need to audition,” the app’s official account replied to the actress-comedienne. It suggested that she could record her own voice to their app. The bonus part is she can even share a link to everyone who wants to use it too.
Quinto was elated at the response, and replied with her famous line: “Yes I do! Gogogo!”
And it seems that some netizens want to make it happen. “Looking forward to this. Ibang level na ‘to,” Sharon Martin (@scarletsascha) said.
Meanwhile, Bomber Billy (@12billybomber) shared that he enjoyed her audition, adding that he could not stop laughing.
And Mon Corpuz (@moncorpuz) said that if it does happen, the Waze app “will make (the Philippines) a better place to drive.”
