Ever wished that Jose Mari Chan was balling instead of ballading? Then, your wish might have been granted as one modder creates a basketball player rendition of the popular Filipino singer using assets found in NBA 2K.
While not a stranger when it comes to memes, meme-ing the Christmas staple singer sees new heights when his recreation appears to be out of character, with the obvious intent of inciting humor.
In the 18-second video posted by Shady00018, it shows what seems to be Jose Mari Chan in a jersey doing his stretches and warm-ups akin to any professional basketball player about to play in a court.
At the background also plays his iconic Christmas song, “Christmas in our Hearts,” further giving away the allusion.
Since its posting last Friday, the video has become viral, garnering at least 600 comments and 18,000 shares on Facebook.
