Imagine how frantic you would be upon seeing a cockroach, much more scream of fear when it starts flying. That used to be a normal reaction. But now, we’ve lost our right to “kaartehan” after watching Liza Soberano in a viral video holding crickets with no fear.
Liza takes the “What’s in a Box Challenge” as part of a promotional campaign of a watch brand. The challenge is to touch the given random objects placed inside the box and have Liza guess what it is.
Contrary to what is commonly expected, Liza keeps herself cool as a cricket crawls on her hand. She asked curiously “It’s a crab. Alimango? What is it? A spider?” as if those guesses weren't terrifying enough she continues to as calmly, “Where’d it go? Oh, ipis? Ah, cockroach.”
Netizens expressed their awe on how come Liza did not evenly flinch on to what she thought was a cockroach.
You truly are a game changer, Liza.
It is just ipis, right? Noted, Liza.
Liza is more than a pretty face, and we couldn’t agree more.
And the disappointment Liza brought us…
There’s another video (part two of the challenge) of her where she’s still calm wiggling a worm and pinching uncooked squid.
We started questioning: How on Earth could be a girl with a pretty face like Liza be amazingly calm in a situation where many of us would freaked out. Maybe we'd be braver to encounter cockroaches now (as long as it doesn't fly, of course) Thanks, Liza!
