The video of an airline pilot paying tribute to his parents, who were his passengers on a Taiwan-bound flight touched the hearts of netizens and has gone viral, according to a report on Unang Balita on Tuesday.

The video shows his parents, Paul and Solly Bernardo, listening to the announcement of the pilot of their plane and were surprised with what they heard.

"Good morning ladies and gentlemen, from the flight deck, this is Genesis Bernardo, your Captain speaking."

But the rest of the pilot's message tugged at their hearts.

"And I would like to take this opportunity to welcome two very important persons in my life, Mr. Paul Bernardo and Mrs. Solly Bernardo, my Dad and my Mom," Genesis announced.

He added that he has always dreamed of having his parents as his passengers.

"I would like to thank you for loving me unconditionally as your son, and for teaching me to do my best in everything that I do. I also thank you for inspiring me to never stop dreaming big. And making me believe that everything is possible as long as you have faith," he said.

"You are one of the biggest reasons why I am here commanding a flight and flying this airplane. It's truly an honor and my pleasure to have you on board. I'm so proud of you for bringing me where I am right now. And I also hope (to) make you proud," he added.

The message of Genesis, which was posted on his Facebook account, has garnered more than 1.7 million views, 41,000 likes with 3,000 comments and 20,000 shares. — BAP, GMA News
