Ah, lovely September. You know what that means here in the Philippines…it’s Christmas time!
If you’ve been on the internet since September arrived, chances are you’ve already seen a couple (or a gazillion) Jose Mari Chan memes that made you laugh. But wait, there’s more! Aside from the usual memes, is also this hilarious Jose Mari Chan dance cover.
Kyo Quijano, a Filipino Youtuber (@KyoQuijano), recently uploaded a pop dance cover of a hyped up version of Jose Mari Chan’s “Christmas In Our Hearts” on Facebook and—honestly—we’ve lost count of the number of times we’ve replayed it. As of writing, the video has already garnered over 1.6 million views!
Watch the dance cover here:

Since Quijano popularized this dance cover, many netizens are now also doing their own dance covers of the Jose Mari Chan classic, calling it the #WheneverISeeBoysAndGirlsChallenge.
Game over, Kiki.
