A few days ago, actress and comedienne Rufa Mae Quinto started her own vlog. For her first entry, she "auditioned" to be a voice of the navigation application Waze. The video, posted on YouTube on August 4, has more than 480,000 views as of press time.
In the description section of her video post, Rufa Mae pleaded with Waze to take notice of her "initiative": "Napagod ako dito, ha. Kaya sana naman, baka naman, Waze, yohooo, Waze, what are you waiting for? Go go go na! Todo na 'to, yes!"
Fortunately for Rufa Mae, her words did not fall on deaf ears. Yesterday, August 9, Waze tweeted her: "Hey, @imrufamaequinto, no need to audition. You can make your very own Waze voice using your Waze app. Just head to Settings > Voice Directions & get recording. Bonus: You can share [it] with everyone via a link."
Rufa Mae replied, "Yes, I do. Gogogo!"
As of this writing, Rufa Mae has not yet shared the link to her Waze voice. But she knows that fans are waiting for it, since she's retweeting their requests for the link.
