THE resemblance is uncanny. Even Kiefer Ravena himself knows it.
When college student Gene Mercado posted another humorous video of himself riding on the “It really hurts” dance craze, thousands of netizens reacted — including the NLEX star.
“Hindi ako to. It really hurts na hindi nyo ako kilala,” the 26-year-old PBA guard tweeted on Sunday night, reposting Mercado's TikTok clip, followed by a series of LOL emoji.
Mercado replied back: “Main difference: Kiefer Ravena can dunk, while I can't even TOUCH the board. It really hurts.”
This playful banter was not the first time the two have crossed paths.
In fact, in 2017, when Mercado got into costume as the former Ateneo player during De La Salle University’s Halloween celebration, he also earned the nod of Ravena.
Every time Mercado posts a funny video, ity goes viral, but he revealed it’s even funnier when the Phenom himself reacts.
In an old interview with Spin.ph, the college student also said he’s looking forward to snap a photo with Ravena in the future.
A few personalities also reacted, with Gretchen Ho even tagging volleyball star and Ravena's girlfriend, Alyssa Valdez.
