MANILA - For this week's "Throwback Thursday," here's a video of Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach using her best pick up line on ABS-CBN reporter Atom Araullo on an episode of morning talk show "Umagang Kay Ganda" back in March.

At the 7:25 mark of the video, the 26-year-old Wurtzbach asked: "Atom, Christmas ka ba?" She followed it up with: "I want to merry you kasi," which was a play on how "merry" and "marry" sounds alike.

The pairing of Wurtzbach and Araullo have caught the fascination of netizens.

It began when Wurtzbach appeared on "Umagang Kay Ganda" for an interview after winning the international pageant. The two were teased by Araullo's co-hosts upon learning that Wurtzbach was single.
