MANILA — Nadine Lustre became the unwitting victim of a prank by her close friend and fellow Viva artist Donnalyn Bartolome in a video that’s gone viral.
The prank, shown in a part of a recent episode of the latter’s YouTube vlog, involved Bartolome asking Lustre whether she could borrow her underwear.
The interaction happened during their joint trip in Jakarta for work. They appeared to be billeted at the same hotel.
“Nads, puwedeng pahiram ng panty? Naubusan ako ng panty,” she said.
Recorded by an accomplice, the unguarded moment saw Lustre visibly confused by Bartolome’s request. The “Your Moment” star eventually agreed, however, saying Bartolome need not return it.
“Hindi na hiram ‘yun! Ibibigay ko na sa ‘yo ‘yun!” Lustre said, to the surprise of Bartolome.
When Bartolome and the accomplice started to laugh, Lustre was clued in on being the target of a prank.
Aside from that setup, Bartolome’s vlog showed glimpses of Lustre in candid moments as the two performers went about their business in Indonesia.
As of writing, the vlog already had some 2 million views on YouTube alone, with some comments expressing amusement with the prank, and others saying Lustre’s fun-loving side was refreshing to see.
