MANILA — "Catherine, ano ba?!"

This was the panicked reaction of Mikee Morada heard throughout Twitter, as the phrase became a trending topic locally, along with his name, on Friday.

Mikee, the fiancé of Alex Gonzaga (whose real name is Catherine), was one of several victims in a prank seen in the actress' latest YouTube vlog.

The so-called "tongue prank" has Alex feigning a gruesome accident, using a fake tongue which she stabs with a fork.

The sight, as expected, triggered shocked reactions from people in her household, among them a visiting Mikee. Though visibly shocked, Mikee swiftly helped remove the fork from Alex's "tongue," before saying, "Catherine, ano ba?!"

Referring to Mikee's mixed reaction of shock and concern, Alex said, in jest, that she was now convinced of her fiancé's "true love."

On Twitter, the moment went viral within hours of the vlog's release, with followers expressing "kilig" over Mikee's genuine reaction, and quipping, "Sana all may Mikee!"
