PBA player Kiefer Ravena humorously reacted to the viral TikTok video of his “kaloka-like” doing the It Really Hurts Challenge.
KAMI learned that a version of De La Salle University student Gene Mercado of the It Really Hurts Challenge went viral on social media and many netizens claimed that he looks a lot like Kiefer.
In a tweet, Kiefer made it clear that he is not the man doing all the dancing in the said TikTok video.
“Hindi ako to. It really hurts na hindi nyo ako kilala,” Kiefer quipped.
Gene first went viral with his own version of Jingle Bell Rock (Mean Girls Dance Cover). He immediately captured the attention of the netizens because of his resemblance to the PBA player.
Kiefer Ravena is a professional basketball player and he plays with NLEX Road Warriors in PBA. He is the son of former PBA player Ferdinand "Bong" Ravena. He used to be a star player at Ateneo de Manila University in the UAAP.
Almost a year ago, Kiefer went emotional after the loss of Gilas Pilipinas against Angola during the FIBA World Cup.
In 2018, Kiefer got suspended in the PBA. He vowed to be a better athlete after his 18-month suspension.
