When popular Filipina actress Angel Locsin dumped her longtime TV network GMA-7 for its rival, ABS-CBN, she boosted both companies' profiles in Search. But the buzz generated by her channel-hop paled next to another controversial event allegedly starring Angel—the emergence of a sex tape. Just like Noelia, Johanna Cardona, Galilea Montijo and Paris Hilton.
Angel, after all, has been voted the second most sexy woman in the world, just after that other heavenly looker, Angelina Jolie. When rumors proliferated of the Filipina beauty unclothed, searchers far beyond that country's borders beat a hot path to the Web. Interest in the scandal and Angel's pictures surged. Lookups for "angel locsin video" rose 625%. Other, more descriptive searches, raced upwards, too. But we'll just leave it at that.
Yet, as any number of the actress' fan blogs will furiously inform you, the film has been proved a fake. It's not her! A wickedly well-endowed Thai performer and model named Natt Chanapa actually stars in the steamy scenes. Buzz on the Asian bombshell promptly flooded the Search box, rising nearly 1,500% over the past week. Search terms like "angel locsin look alike" also leapt.
Sadly, Natt has not able to enjoy her spin upwards in Buzz. She's been arrested for her revealing appearance in the video. The Thai government doesn't like sex tapes—or phony angels.
