MANILA -- Lyca Gairanod on Monday landed on Twitter Philippines’ list of trending topics after her most-recent interview with ABS-CBN News’ Karen Davila made the rounds online.

In the now viral clip, Davila asked Gairanod when her birthday is. As it turns out, the young singer was born on November 21, which also happened to be her birthday.

Davila was extremely shocked by this coincidence and her screaming reaction made Gairanod step back a little, looking perplexed. 

“Oh my God! Birthday ko iyon! Birthday mo November 21? Hindi ko alam 'yun ah, wait hindi ko alam 'yun. Magka-birthday kami,” Davila exclaimed.

Several netizens were amused by this interaction between Davila and Gairanod that some of them said they could not stop laughing while watching the clip.

Even Davila herself admitted that watching the short video also makes her laugh.

Aside from Gairanod making it to Twitter’s trending topics, their interaction also gave birth to a meme that’s now being used all over social media as of writing.

Towards the latter part of that video, Davila promised to throw a party on her and Gairanod’s birthday.

“We are meant to meet. How many people ang makakatsamba mo, ini-interview ka, ka-birthday mo? Dear set in stone, kapag nag-birthday tayong dalawa, ako ang magpapa-party,” she said.

The interview originally appeared on Davila’s YouTube vlog where she visited Gairanod in her hometown in Tanza, Cavite.
