Michael, who is currently training and competing to secure a spot in the 2022 Winter Olympics, shared the short clip on Instagram as he wrote, "When you're marupok."
Michael's Insta followers pointed out that the figure skater used the song for his practice routine as he has a crush on Maris. One netizen said, "Crush mo lang yung singer, e." Another fan praised Michael for his "world-class skating," while yet another commenter said he should collaborate with Maris.
