Remember when Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto did a cameo in the "Kalyeserye" segment of Eat Bulaga?
Vico's appearance in the segment happened when "Kalyeserye" was in Pasig on October 26, 2015, a few months before he served as a member of the Pasig City Council.
In that segment, Lola Tinidora (Jose Manalo) suddenly pulls in a young man from the crowd, and he turns out to be Vico.
Lola Tinidora introduces Vico, who is smiling but looking confused, as her boyfriend.
Host Vic Sotto, who is in the studio but is shown on the split screen, exclaims, "Ayan iyong anak ko, huy! Huwag!"
Lola Tinidora tries to kiss Vico on the cheek, but is gently pushed away by his befuddled victim.
Lola Tinidora then introduces Vico to Yaya Dub (Maine Mendoza), "Kiss mo si Yaya Dub!"
Yaya Dub's love-team partner, Alden Richards, is also on the split-screen and is watching from the studio.
Back to the studio scene, Allan K teases Alden, "Selos si Tisoy! Selos si Tisoy! Hala hala!"
Vico also participates in the part where the characters do a live freeze onscreen, which marks the end of the "Kalyeserye" segment.
Allan K remarks, "Wow nakiki-freeze si Vico, oh! Ang galing ni Vico, naka-freeze din!"
In an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), Vico revealed that his appearance in "Kalyeserye" was not really a scheduled guesting.
He explained, "Kung mapapansin ninyo, wala naman akong lapel. Wala po akong earpiece.
"Noong time po na lumabas ako ng Kalyeserye, ni hindi ko nga naririnig iyong pinag-uusapan nila, e.
"Di ba, pag ganun po, kung wala kang earpiece, hindi mo maririnig yung nangyayari?
"So, nakangiti lang ako. Hinatak po ako ni Jose [Manalo]. Nanonood ako kasi nasa distrito ko po sa Pasig.
"So, nandoon ako sa likod ng kamera, which I really do kapag nandoon sila, bumibisita talaga ako.
"So, nandoon ako, nanonood, nakikitawa kina JoWaPao plus Maine.
"And then, bigla akong hinatak ni Jose... e, di siyempre, nasa kamera, nakangiti lang ako. Nakikitawa. Pero sa totoo, wala akong alam sa nangyayari."
Eat Bulaga! currently airs replays of "Kalyeserye" episodes. Its live shows are currently on hold because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
