MANILA - It appears online sensation McNeal Briguela, more popularly known as "Aura," has caught the attention of comedian Vice Ganda.
On "It's Showtime" on Wednesday, Vice Ganda imitated the signature poses and the over-the-top acting style of Briguela, which earned the 12-year-old kid an acting stint in "Ang Probinsyano."
In the hit primetime series, Briguela plays Mak-Mak -- the only son of a retired soldier, who now works as a balut vendor at night. It has been heavily hinted that he has developed a crush on lead character Cardo (Coco Martin).
