A press conference for a show of GMA network went viral on social media because of their gimmick.
In a social media post, @AltGMA posted a video taken during an event for ‘Hearts On Ice’ where it can be seen that the event organizers added a snow effect during the photo-op of the cast.
To achieve the said effect, the organizers used an electric fan and styrofoam bits to add a snow effect.
However, some netizens made fun of the said gimmick, calling it ‘cheap’.
They pointed out that some food served during the event was wasted because it was already been mixed with styrofoam.
Some netizens also noticed the reaction of some of the casts of the show.
