Viewers have finally seen Jak Roberto transform into the young Dante Gulapa in GMA-7's anthology show Magpakailanman.
Earlier tonight, March 23, Jak depicted the macho dancer who became a viral sensation for popularizing the Eagle Pose, Flying Eagle, or Eagle Dance.
Jak's younger sister, Sanya Lopez, had a hilarious reaction to his MPK episode.
The Kapuso actress continued their long-running joke of hitting each other with a stick whenever they seem to disapprove of each other's actions.
Sanya tweeted: "Nasaaaaaaan pamalo mooooo!!!!!! #MPKDanteGulapa"
In response, Jak wrote a message for Sanya: "Huyyy matulog ka na nga!"
"Hirap kumita ng pera," wrote Jak in another Twitter post showing him topless as he knelt down on the floor of the club where his character worked.
A Twitter user using the handle @junjunchogiwa wondered out loud:
"Sayawan ko rin kaya crush ko, baka pakasalan rin ako? #MPKDanteGulapa"
Do you think that Magic Mike, the Hollywood film of Channing Tatum was beaten by popularity of the eagle dance king?
Twitter user kangaroogorilla observed:
"Na who you ang MagicMike sa #MPKDanteGulapa uy."

Even the water crisis became relevant to this episode titled Magpakailanman: "Viral Macho Dancer" Dante Gulapa Story.
Twitter user @joanjoyie1995 reacted to Jak dousing his topless body with beer:
"Yung wala ng tubig, kaya beer nalang pinaligo"
#MPKDanteGulapa became the No. 1 trending hashtag on Twitter Philippines.
It was followed by #MMKDiplomaSaSelda, which corresponds to tonight's episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya. MMK is the ABS-CBN rival of GMA-7's Magpakailanman.
