Kapamilya actor Vin Abrenica, who plays “Jepoy” in the afternoon top rated TV series on ABS-CBN, Wildflower, shared on ‘Tonight With Boy Abunda’ how he got himself in a little trouble when his phone number went viral after it was accidentally aired on TV.
Vin said, he lent his real phone on one of the scenes involving a call from Ivy Aguas as there was no other phone available at the moment.
“Meron akong phone na ginagamit ko for the show tapos I have my own phone. Tapos kailangan tinatawagan ako ni Ivy Aguas, nakasulat Ivy. So walang ready na phone na magpapa-ring ng phone na ‘yun, so I suggested my phone. Pa-ring na natin ‘tong cellphone na ‘to,” said Vin.
[I have my phone which I use for the show, and have my own personal one. Then needed, Ivy Agus was calling me, it read ‘Ivy’ (on the phone’s screen). So there was no readily available phone that would ring the other phone, so I suggested my phone. Let’s ring this phone.]
His phone number was flashed on tv, calling on air, which they thought was Ivy’s.
Vin shared his experience after the episode was aired. “In the middle of the night, maraming nare-receive na ‘Ivy! Ivy!’ Flood. Sunud-sunod na.” [I received several text messages saying ‘Ivy! Ivy! It was flooding.]
It didn’t stop there! Vin revealed that he freaked out when a certain man has kept calling him in the middle of the night.
“Sabi niya, malalim na boses, ‘Ito ba si Maja?” [He said, in a deep voice, ‘Is this Maja?’]
Vin lost his patience when the guy persistently asked if he was Maja Salvador, or if he was working for Ivy Aguas, and that he wanted to talk to her.
“So ako galit na kasi sinisira mo ‘yung tulog ko, pagod na pagod. Nagkasagutan kami,” he added.
[So, I was really furious, you woke me up from sleep, I was dead tired. We had fighting words.]
After the incident, he decided to finally change his number.
