We love Pinoy pride as much as the next person, but we also love poking fun at ourselves when called for—and the way healthcare is depicted in Tagalog teleseryes definitely calls for it.

We’ve all seen the memes of that time a GMA show used a washing machine drain hose as a ventilator tube. Or the many times tubes have been haphazardly stuck on actors’ faces, sometimes not even attached to anything at all.

But now these typical teleserye gaffes have reached family medicine physician and internet celebrity Mikhael Varshavski, known by his fans simply as Dr. Mike. He’s known for clearing misconceptions about healthcare in quick, digestible videos. A popular personality among med students and netizens, this doctor’s most popular videos are when he corrects medical dramas like Grey’s Anatomy and House.

But his latest critique isn’t of a U.S. drama—it’s of a teleserye from GMA.

Ah, the immortality of that infamous Kambal, Karibal scene. 

“These chest compressions hurt my soul,” joked Dr. Mike, and his Filipino fans were quick to pick up on the quip.  

Our YouTube suggestion for Dr. Mike: a reaction video of Filipino teleserye hospital scenes. We’re so on board.

Here are the best reactions to Dr. Mike’s teleserye discovery:
