On Instagram, a surprising interaction between Arjo Atayde and Ken Chan was well-received by netizens.

Both actors became prominent on TV for playing characters with autism. In The General's Daughter, Atayde played Elijah "Elai" Sarmiento, the son of Nanang Sabel (Maricel Soriano) who has autism. His performance on the show was praised by the Autism Society of the Philippines.

Similarly, Ken Chan plays Boyet in My Special Tatay, a father who has a mild intellectual disability under the mild autism spectrum.

As the two met, both began to pay tribute to their characters and play them together, acting out a scene on what would happen if Elai met Boyet.
