Boy Abunda Hilariously Reacts to the Memes About His Basketball Skills
Yes, he finds it funny too.
(SPOT.ph) You've probably seen a lot of Boy Abunda on your feed lately. No, it's not just another round of him asking, "Sex or chocolate?" and "Light on or lights off?" to another celebrity. It's him, in a gray sweatshirt and shorts, playing basketball. It's an odd sight—which is why it's so hilarious. And it's good to know that the host himself also finds it funny. Some of the memes have been reposted on the Instagram account of his show, Tonight With Boy Abunda and he also acknowledged the meme on the show by recreating his moves.
In case you didn't know, it all started with an episode of Tonight With Boy Abunda (TWBA), where the talk show host interviews teen actor Grae Fernandez. Abunda gives Fernandez a basketball as a gift then asks him to teach him how to dribble.
Leave it to the Internet to superimpose Abunda's, well, pose, on different pop-culture references from NBA 2k19 to anime. In the compilation of memes on TWBA's Instagram page, Abunda jokingly asks if it's time for a career change.
On TWBA's episode last night, January 9, Abunda opens the show with his now-unforgettable basketball moves—and in a sports attire, no less. He introduces himself as Leboy James (get it?) before thanking his fans (called "Abundants") for the good vibes.
We're only a few days into January, but if 2018 was any indication, we're sure to see more hilarious memes from Pinoy entertainment. But it's nice to see that Abunda is taking it well as the first meme of the year.
