- Ryan Bang called himself stupid after falling victim to a prank of It’s Showtime co-host Vice Ganda
- Vice Ganda came up with the “Choppy Choppihan” video call prank for the comedian’s latest vlog
- It took the Korean co-host some time before realizing that it was all a trick
- He admitted feeling nervous about the serious info that Vice was giving him, which later turned out to be all a joke
Ryan Bang fell victim to Vice Ganda’s “Choppy Choppihan” video call prank, causing It’s Showtime’s Korean co-host to feel stupid at not being able to detect earlier that it was all a trick.
Vice Ganda revealed that he did the prank for his latest vlog that the comedian publishes on his YouTube channel.
During the prank, Vice pretended he could not understand a thing that the Korean co-host was saying because of Internet connection problems.
Every time the comedian responds to the Korean co-host, he would also pretend that his Internet connection is not good.
Because of the supposed bad connection, Ryan could only make out a few words from Vice and the rest is all garbled audio.
In the vlog, Vice kept telling his co-host about ABS-CBN’s mandatory swab testing for those who enter the network’s premises.
Vice even added a fake message specifically addressed to Ryan that is supposed to have come from Ms. Cory Vidanes, ABS-CBN’s Chief Operating Officer from Broadcast.
At the outset, the Korean co-host seemed to understand Vice despite of his constant vague remarks, until the comedian told him it has something to do about Ryan’s COVID test results.
“Ano ba ang sinasabi mo? Hindi ko maintindihan,” Ryan asked. He then heard Vice saying something urgently about Tita Cory (Ms. Vidanes) and the concern that Ryan might still enter the ABS-CBN compound next week.
The Korean co-host eventually realized that it was all a trick when he saw Vice twisting his tongue.
“Ang bobo ko naman. Ngayon ko lang nagets. Natakot ako sa Tita Cory,” Ryan said.
