‘R-I-P that’: Rufa Mae impersonator blows up on TikTok

June 02nd, 2021

The ever-changing ‘For You’ page on TikTok is currently focused on a remix of the “I’m getting ripped tonight…” sound.

TikTok users are now putting their own spins on the sound, most of them delivering iconic lines from beloved films and TV seriesspanning to internet memes and even local media. 

From lines hailing from the 2000’s favorite Friends:

One Filipina put her own hilarious twist on the “R-I-P that” sound.

Thesalonika Nobleza Mabangue (@thesalonikanm) blew up from her “Ruffa on the loose” rendition of the trend.

Impersonating the one and only, Rufa Mae Quinto-Magallanes, the TikTok has currently been viewed over 8 million times, garnering 1.6 million likes from entertained users. 

Rufa Mae Quinto-Magallanes may best be known through her comedic work in the GMA comedy series Bubble Gang. She is also a known actress, host, and singer with an easily distinguishable way of speaking. 

Thesalonika Nobleza Mabangue responded to the attention she was receiving in another TikTok, also using her Rufa Mae voice, of course! Mabangue notes that she wasn’t expecting so many people to love and interact with her TikTok, thanking fans for all their support.

Thanks to her eerily accurate rendition of Rufa Mae, Mabangue now has a larger audience watching her. She currently has more than 270,000 followers and 3.8 million likes on TikTok.

Mabangue also recreated Rufa Mae’s classic “Tanggap ko na, Jane, Wanda” Status: Single monologue that still resonates with many romantically frustrated people, to this day.

She even reimagined the Philippine Airlines voice over into what it might be like if Rufa Mae got a hold of the comms system.

Mabangue’s Rufa Mae impression isn’t all she’s capable of as she unlocks another iconic character impersonation.

The next time you’re on TikTok, why not try getting ripped tonight and create your own spin on the trend before it gets washed away from your for you page (R-I-P that trend)? As Rufa Mae Quinto-Magallanes once said… Go… Go… Go!
