One 10-second TikTok video, Joshua Garcia's first ever, was all it took for the TV star to go viral on the platform, leaving netizens and fellow celebrities swooning over his good boy looks.
It's the kind of TikTok reception that content creators could only dream of, one which Garcia got on his debut. He amassed 1.6 million followers and 112,700 comments in three days.
Garcia, recently emancipated from his love team partner, only smiled and covered half of his face to Yung Lean's "Ginseng Strip 2002" dance trendand got four million likes for that post.
TikToker turned actor Esnyr Ranollo joked about "making memories" with Garcia, which the actor replied to with a "like."
Content creator Pipay, known for her toothy grin, was also noticed by Garcia in the comments section.
Social media personality Macoy Dubs, famous for her next generation Tita of Manila character Auntie Julie, also chimed in.
Vlogger Mimiyuuuh left at least three comments on Garcia's video, teasing him "pwede ka pa humabol sa Pasko", a joke among single people who are looking for partners in time for Christmas.
"May kamukha po kau," said Joyce Glorioso, known to fans as Joyang TV.
Daniel Miranda, race car driver and actress Sofia Andres' partner, teased Garcia for joining Gen Z's favorite app.
Other netizens who eagerly waited for Garcia's TikTok debut reminded influencers to get back in line for the actor's attention.
"Pogi" or "cute"? Also "gwapo."
He does look fresh.
He makes guys question their preferences.
Promises were made.
One view won't suffice.
While some pleaded for Garcia to notice them, one netizen was #blessed with an early Christmas gift: a "like" from the actor.
Can we just "add to cart" him for Christmas?
Or make him our phone wallpaper?
"Normalize maulol kay Joshua."
