It’s Showtime mainstay Vice Ganda was lauded by netizens after showing kind gestures to motorists during a car accident in which his car was also involved.
Vice spoke about the incident in an earlier episode of the noontime program on Saturday, Aug. 21, followed by the videos of the accident which appeared and circulated on social media hours later.

The clips shared online showed Vice aiding other victims and assuring their safety. In the video, he also offered water to a woman and comforted her as authorities worked on the incident.
“Sana tulungan niyo po ‘yung driver na nakabangga sa amin. Naararo kami, apat kaming sasakyan, parang nakatulog ‘yung driver, so wasak na wasak,” he shared to madlang people.
Sana tulungan niyo ‘yung driver kasi balita namin—at saka sa contractor, ‘yung may ari ng truck, sana tulungan n’yo yung diver, kasi naawa din naman ako sa driver kasi andaming sasakyan ‘yun eh,” he added.
A Lalamove delivery truck was spotted to be the vehicle that primarily caused the collision.
His co-host Kim Chiu, who is known as one of the local endorsers of Lalamove, presented to pass on Vice’s request to the delivery company.
“Meme, ambassador ako ng Lalamove. Sige pwede kong i-text…” Kim told Vice.
“Paki, oo. Assist n’yo rin yung driver, although sa contractor ‘yun. Pero i-assist sana kasi kawawa ‘yung driver,” the comedian said.
Vice even managed to lighten the situation with a funny story during the accident.
“I’m still alive! Yes! ‘yun nga lang namatay ‘yung—kasi number one na ako sa Candy Crush noong mga panahon na ‘yun. Oo! Number one ako ilang weeks na; number four na [lang] ako ngayon,” he humored his fellow hosts and audience.
