UNCANNY. An Ateneo fan went viral on Twitter after his scary-good impersonation of Coach Oliver Almadro.
As if you need even more reasons to love UAAP Volleyball Twitter.
A 10-second clip of a fan uncannily mimmicking the way Ateneo's champion coach Oliver Almadro talks during timeouts is making rounds on social media, fresh off the Lady Eagles' title win.
The man with the creepily accurate Coach O voice is Mark Levin Aguirre, according to the uploader, a user with the handle @ohitskerah, real name Karacaitlin Janer.
In the clip, Aguirre calls a timeout ala-Almadro, then proceeds to talk in the mentor's instantly recognizable and inflated voice, as if conversing with hitter Ponggay Gaston, replete with his signature 'Be better than your best' quote, to the delight of his audience, and the rest of UAAP Twitter.
Here's an actual timeout for reference:
The tweet was uploaded sometime during Game 2 of the UAAP women's volleyball Finals, and has garnered over 8.5K likes and 1.8K retweets, as of press time.
