Taking part in a hilarious TikTok phenomenon that has left millions double-taking, 21-year-old Jiovanni Herrera recently skyrocketed to internet fame by convincingly mimicking his 41-year-old mom, Monique Meza, in a viral video experiment.

The young man didn't just dress the part—he fully immersed himself in his mom's persona, even going so far as to use her identification card to test just how convincing his transformation was.

Herrera slipped into a wig and donned some of his mom's clothing—a pair of skinny jeans, a maroon sweatshirt, and stylish accessories—to complete his look.

With a flair for theatrics and attention to detail, he even made it appear that he had breasts. The video's pièce de résistance was when he fooled a store clerk, verifying his impeccable disguise.

“My son wanted to see if he could pass as me,” wrote Meza in the viral video, adding, “The answer is yes he can.”

And it wasn't just the internet that took note; the viral video racked up over 2.7 million views and saw Meza reposting it with the background music of Reba McEntire’s 'I’m a Survivor', thanks to popular demand from viewers.

But the mother-son duo didn’t stop there. A follow-up video posted just two days later showed Meza and Herrera astonishing a waiter at a restaurant, making him believe they were the same person.

When the waiter was finally clued into the hilarious prank, he couldn't help but exclaim, "You guys look alike! I'm shook!" As of late Monday afternoon, this restaurant escapade had raked in nearly 30 million views, further solidifying their viral status.

Meza, who has been a content creator for eight years, told Today that her resemblance to her son has only grown "the older he gets."

She observes that they have the "same shape face" and remarkably similar noses. But what excites Meza the most is her son's newfound passion for video creation. "I've been doing this for eight years and he's never wanted to do videos with me," she said, "but now he's totally on board and is asking to make more!"
