Vice President Leni Robredo's daughter, Tricia, has a new nom de guerre as she campaigns house to house, Joferlyn, thanks to a comedian who interviewed her for his satire campaign series in a video released Monday.
Jun Sabayton, also known as Bayaw, is running a satire election campaign BAYAW ("Bagong Alyansang Ayaw sa Walanghiya") for President, using humor to promote voter's education.
Tricia, a medical doctor and the middle child among the three Robredo sisters, was invited to talk about her mother when she was introduced as Joferlyn in the video with more than 82,000 views and more than 1,000 shares.
"Ako po si Tricia pero kahit na anong gusto n'yong tawag sa akin okay lang. Joferlyn na lang tayo," she told Sabayton.
Asked to name a song describing their campaign experience, marred by disinformation and aggression from supporters of rival candidates, Tricia answered Eraserhead's "Ligaya".
"Kahit ang hirap, ang saya-saya pa rin natin, happy-happy lang. 'Yung iba nase-stress na kung ano dapat gawin, tayo masaya lang."
Asked about her mother's favorite songs, Tricia said it's OPM with "may pa-drama effect na kailangan nagluluha-luha, may walling."
Sabayton then asked Tricia why she would vote for him this coming elections.
"Bakit ikaw? Kasi nakikita ko na mapagmahal kang tao, ganun 'yung gusto natin sa lider kaya pinili kitang presidente ko, kasi alam ko ang puso mo, nasa kapwa talaga," said Tricia, to which Sabayton answered "Nanay mo 'yan ah?"
Sabayton earlier joined one of Robredo's campaign rallies, where he told the lone woman presidential candidate that Bayaw would "concede" for Robredo.
"Magko-concede ako pero hihingi ako ng puwesto sa inyo, hihingin ko ang PDEA," he said before grinding his teeth, an indirect jab about survey frontrunner Bongbong Marcos' alleged cocaine use.
