Kim Atienza aka "Mr. Piolo Pascual for a day," broke the news Tuesday evening that a mermaid was spotted in Palawan, telling viewers, "May natagpuang lumalangoy na sirena sa bayan ng Coron, Palawan kaninang pasado alas tres ng madaling araw."
Thankfully, it was an April Fools' joke.
Atienza then continued with his "Kauting Kaalaman" segment on TV Patrol with some interesting facts about the origin of April Fools' Day, even mentioning the 1957 infamous prank by BBC called "Swiss Spaghetti Harvest."
Wait, did that just seriously happen? Piolo Pascual replacing Atienza on TV Patrol? You know we're totally joking, right?
