Luis Manzano has revived one of his memes featuring himself and Asia's heartthrob Jerry Yan.
And once again, we are reminded that he is in the running for what he termed as "pogilympics."
Posting a bathtub (and a bath ducky) shot, he writes this in the caption, "Reminder lang- Di naman sa pang-aano Jerry Yan, papunta ka pa lang, naka-ilang balik na ako... kung may Jerry Yan ang Taiwan, may Luis A-yan-O ang Pinas #pinoypride #pogilympics"
The first time he put this out was on August 4, 2020, shortly after Jerry's steamy bathtub stills for his series Count Your Lucky Stars broke the Internet.
Those who have been following the 39-year-old star's Instagram feed are used to his "GGSS" or "guwapong-guwapo sa sarili" posts.
And whoever is hot, the son of Edu Manzano and Vilma Santos finds a way to make himself hotter.
At the height of Crash Landing On You's popularity, he became Captain Ri, este, Captain Lu, and even tagged the South Korean series' female lead Son Yen Jin.
His caption read, "#Pinoypride talaga ang looks ko... maraming salamat ulit sa lahat ng suporta na binigay niyo sa Crush Landing on Lu . Di biro commitment ko as Capt. Lu pero binigay ko lahat. Ay shiet , naiiyak ako now... follow and go for your dreams guys!!! @yejinhand , salamat sa lahat, text text na lang"
He also did a series of posts tagging and asking Super Junior member and actor Choi Si-won to "meet your twin from the Philippines Sipon Choi!"
Fellow celebrities could not help but drop their reactions.
Dawn Zulueta wrote, "Kainis! Hahaha"
Bianca Gonzalez commented, "sobrang nakakabwisit pero ang saya."
Likewise, Sylvia Sanchez said, "Hahahaha nakakahappy pagkasiraulo mo ahahaha ewan ko sa iyo luis ahahahaha"
His memes, photos, videos, and captions are very much attuned to his funny-guy persona, which, by the way, has landed him numerous hosting gigs, not to mention endorsements.
At the launch of his latest project as game-show host for the "Playtime Panalo" on The Puregold Channel, he said entertainment has never been so in demand.
"Sa panahon ngayon, we need all the positive vibes that we can get. Kahit anong form ng entertainment, ano mang paraan ng kasiyahan iyan, kailangan natin iyan para magbigay sa atin ng pag-asa."
While waiting for his next TV project to be finalized, Luis' online game show has been giving netizens the chance to be chosen either as home partners or as game-show contestants.
It also gets him "very excited" as one episode can get as much as 200,000 views.
And, by the way, there's a game question about his being guwapo.
In a separate interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), he previously said that his "GGSS" posts and pronouncements, though some are "takaw-bashers," are harmless.
"Nothing but the truth," he threw in, looking serious.
He added, "I don't do that para magpapansin o magka-project. If you noticed, if there's a funny video, nasa feed ko dapat iyan.
"Nakakatawa, e. If hindi ka natawa, sorry ka.
"If hindi ka naguwapuhan sa akin, hindi naman din ako affected."
Come to think of it, in the time of pandemic, we don't just need humor in our lives, but doses of self-confidence, too.
