MANILA - In a rare moment, Piolo Pascual's son Iñigo shared the screen with the showbiz heartthrob -- not in a movie or TV show, but via a video blog posted on the 16-year-old's YouTube page.
In the nearly two-minute video published last Friday, Iñigo introduces his dad as a "big movie star in the Philippines." The two proceed to talk about Iñigo's dream of also making it to showbiz.
Piolo, 37, advises Iñigo to finish his studies first, however. He goes on to "lecture" his son about not relying entirely on an acting career for financial stability, stressing the importance of investing and saving.
Although no brand is mentioned in the video, Piolo is known to be an endorser of a life insurance company in the Philippines.
On his Instagram page, Iñigo shared a behind-the-scenes photo of him with his dad at what appears to be the same living room set in the video.
Piolo, on his own account, captioned the same photo: "And finally it's happening... Sooner than I expected... Hehe.. Playing support to @iminigopascual #proudpop"
Iñigo, who is based in California with his mother, has expressed interest in following his dad's footsteps. In earlier interviews, Piolo said that while he is open to his son joining showbiz, he will only allow him to go full-time once he turns 18.
Other videos on Iñigo's YouTube page show him performing covers of popular songs, including One Direction's "Little Things."
The account also has several other personal vlogs. In one entry, Iñigo talks about his first rehearsal day for a production of the musical "Hairspray."
