The residents, initially believing that it is really Manny visiting them, cheered and asked for photographs when “Manny” attended various events in the province. Little did they know that the guy in their photos is Canadian-based Ulysses Abenojar, a native of Bambang, Nueva Vizcaya.

Abenojar is related to the wife of Nueva Vizcaya Board Member Efren Quiben, who came up with the idea to have Abenojar pretend as Manny  “to provide entertainment” to the residents. Quiben, and other local officials, accompanied “Manny” tour Dupax del Norte, Dupax del Sur and Diadi towns last November.

 

Quiben clarified however that although people took Abenojar as the real Manny, they later on disclosed that he is only a look-alike.

 

Abenojar, who was back in the country to fix his birth records, has already been drawing crowds abroad because of his uncanny resemblance to the Pambansang Kamao, according to Quiben.

Doppelgangers of famous celebrities is not a new thing. An impersonator of Korean singer PSY pretended he was the ‘Gangnam Style’ singer and sneaked into events at the Cannes Film Festival last year, convincing celebrities that he is the real PSY.
