Alex Gonzaga once again proved that she is the queen of pranks!
This time, her victim was none other than YouTube sensation Small Laude in her latest vlog titled "Pautang Prank." According to Alex, the initial plan was to do a closet raid (which is still happening in an upcoming vlog), but she also decided to pull a prank on Small in between filming.
"Kunwari ang prank natin na-swindle ako at kailangan ko ng pera. At mangungutang ako," she said in the intro.
Alex explained: "Kunyari nagsa-start ang video, then may tatawag, tapos siyempre maii-stress ako. Papaalisin ko ang lahat, then mangungutang ako."
To make her prank realistic, Alex arrived at Small's house later than scheduled, looking all stressed and problematic to appear convincing. Concerned, the socialite made sure Alex was okay before proceeding with the tour.
Now, the real fun began during the actual closet tour. The two kept getting interrupted by persistent calls on Alex’s phone. When she finally had enough, she decided to have a one-on-one talk with Small and delivered her made-up story of getting swindled with PHP 80 million.
"Hindi pa po alam ng asawa ko, kayo pa lang po," Alex confessed to Small, who seemed to be panicking already.
Small had a hunch that it was a prank the moment Alex hinted she needed to borrow money from her. "Pina-prank mo 'ko. Ang yaman-yaman mo! I cannot believe it," she told Alex, who insisted that it wasn't a prank.
Alex didn’t give in easily and just went on, saying PHP 50 million would suffice. But then later she said she’d settle for PHP 2 million from Small.
Small's husband Philip then entered the picture and tried to console Alex about what happened. "Naintindihan namin. Noong bata ako, na-swindle ako. Hindi ka matututo kung hindi ka maloloko, eh," he said.
Instead of just PHP 2 million, he added another million, lending her a total of 3M. The socialite already requested for their checkbook when Philip noticed a camera placed on a drawer, on record. Alex then burst into tears before blurting out "It's a prank!" to the couple.
"Sh*t, sabi ko na nga! Oh my God! Ang yaman mo, eh! Mas mayaman ka pa!" Small exclaimed, who even praised Alex for her convincing acting skills.
Upon realizing what they just did, Small made a disclaimer to all their fans and friends: "Guys, hindi kami nagpapautang lang, ha. 'Wag niyo kami uutangan, wala kaming ipapa-utang!" LOL!
