If you've ever spent any time on TikTok (or on social media in general), you would know that Joshua Garcia has been going *viral* in that particular video platform for his short dance covers. In an interview with Star Magic's Inside News, the 24-year-old actor said that he was overwhelmed by the reaction of netizens, especially in his first video.

"Actually, nung sobrang fresh pa nung pag-upload ko nung video, sobrang gulat na gulat ako. Tapos tuwang-tuwa ako sa mga tao kapag pinapagawa nila sa mga boyfriend nila. Tawang-tawa ako kapag pinagtitripan nila 'yung video ko," he shared, talking about his first video where he did the "Ginseng Strip 2002" dance trend.
He also said that it felt good that he was making other people happy with his TikTok videos.
"Parang feeling ko kahit ang bigat ng panahon natin sa moment na 'yon, sa linggo na 'yon, sa week na 'yon, ay napapasaya ko sila. Sarap lang sa pakiramdam. Ako sobrang gulat na gulat ako na ganoon 'yung views," he shared.
He also stressed that he was *not* the first to "trend" the video or the moves, saying that he just saw it from others.
"Gusto ko lang gawin 'yung trend na 'yon kasi nakita ko ang daming gumagawa. Actually, hindi ako ang gumawa ng trend na 'yon, nakita ko lang sa iba, ginawa ko lang. Na-claim na lang din na parang mukhang ako 'yung gumawa, pero hindi talaga ako."
"Nagulat ako na ginagawa siya ng mga taga-ibang bansa... ng mga K-pop idols. Nagulat ako nang ginawa nila 'yon, parang 'yon pa lang feeling ko... ang sarap sa pakiramdam, kasi siyempre nakikita nila ang video ko umaabot sa ibang lugar, 'di ba?
As of writing, his first video has garnered over 111.1 million views. Just last month, he trended again with his dance cover of Lil Wayne's song "Lollipop," which racked over 46.2 million views.
