Keys Me

Alyssa was entangled in an internet meme in the Summer of June 2006. Alano performed the song Kiss Me by Sixpence None the Richer on an episode of GMA Network's late night show Master Showman Presents. Alano sang the English song in a heartfelt, cheerful way, but with a heavy Tagalog accent, which was then mocked in a mondegreened video posted on YouTube posted by "calimanok". The video contains subtitles, containing such mondegreens as "Keys Me". Toward the end of the month, the clip had been viewed over 500,000 times.

Apparently, Alano had no idea that her YouTube video became an Internet meme until it was shown to her during an interview on the show Chika Minute.

Interestingly, Alano has been a good sport in her reactions to the sudden popularity of her singing video, even publicly thanking the anonymous prankster who created the clip, saying it got her a lot of attention/publicity, and that it has truly helped her showbiz career take off.[1] She has since appeared in a few TV talk shows to jokingly re-sing "Keys Me" along with the clip's audio track.

Alano's pranksters have also broadcast another karaoke-style video of her singing "Whenever, Wherever" by Shakira and "Crush" by Jennifer Paige.
