Probably every cliche you can find in our local teenage fiction is portrayed in this spoof of Sassa titled “Sun and Moon.” As the female lead, it stars Princess chancing an encounter with a guy that is way out of her league.

As the “bida” in a television drama
Sassa wouldn’t dare miss poverty as an overused theme in highlighting the growth of a leading figure in every Filipino teleseryes. Hence, her parody of a province girl exploring the city for new opportunities could not be more hilarious than it is. Moreover, a rich leading man whose parents oppose a poor girl as their daughter-in-law completes the spice of this plot.
Growing up exposed to dramas like these, many find this content very relatable. The whopping 7k replies and 5.8M views gathered by the video can testify to that.
Our Mima stars in horror

The narrative follows a group of young individuals on an expedition to a remote place where fearful happenings will haunt them. Mystery build-ups, jumpscares, and violence— it has it all!
Pinpointing typical Pinoy elements, followers agreed that this imitation is so precise. It is no surprise how the clip harvested 3.9M views and almost 700k likes.
