Actress, singer, host, “raketera” Sharon Cuneta!
While presidential candidate Leni Robredo was giving her speech during her campaign in Negros Occidental, netizens who were watching the live stream got distracted by Sharon Cuneta in the background. The actress-singer seemed to be recommending a certain item to her seatmate at the people’s rally as the latter took a photo of it with his phone. Their onstage chat drew laughs as netizens shared amusing captions and made-up conversations for the clip.
The Megastar herself reposted the now-viral video on Instagram with laughing emojis and pink hearts. It was originally posted by her fan @megaberksonline, who joked in the caption: “Paano po magreseller madam?”

It has also been shared to other platforms like Facebook and Twitter, drawing out hilarious reactions from Internet users. Some of them were quick to call her a “side hustle queen.”
“Get that money shawie!!!” a netizen tweeted.
“Budol yarn?” another one asked.
Someone also joked about “pay later” and installment transactions. “Get mo na, baka bet ni misis! Kahit sa katapusan na bayad, pwede rin 2 gives.”
Other netizens, meanwhile, gave their wild guesses and requested a product reveal. “Open-minded kami, promise!” a social media user said.
Another one joked that she was “selling a rejuvenating set.”
Most of them, however, think it’s Pei Pa Koa syrup—a natural herbal remedy that has long been known to soothe the throat.
Cuneta has been present in some "Kakampink" rallies to support his husband Senator Kiko Pangilinan, who is seeking a vice presidential seat in the May 2022 polls. The latter's running mate is VP Robredo.
