The actor Jack Chalmers got celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay's attention when he impersonated the father of five.

Ramsay has joked about intimidating his daughters' boyfriends before, like when he told Extra he would "just stand there, about to chop onions and stare at them with a knife and go, 'You are not going upstairs, you little s---,'" whenever one of them would come over to the house.

So Chalmers developed a scene of his own in which he plays Ramsay at work in the kitchen when his youngest daughter Tilly's date shows up.

At the time of writing, Chalmers' video had 37.6 million views on TikTok. It was so good that the TV host himself reposted it to his own Instagram and said he did a "brilliant job" before tagging his daughter asking if he's "really that bad."

In classic Ramsay fashion, the actor intentionally messes up the man's name and calls him "t---" before hearing correctly that the name is Matt.

"Oh, you're my daughter's date," Chalmers says, getting close to the camera as if he's right in someone's face. "Oh, wow," he continues as he makes a disgusted face and disappears back into the kitchen.

Talking to the rest of the kitchen staff and moving his arms and body in the same way Ramsay often does on his various cooking competition shows, the actor says, "One thing I can tell you is that Tilly should have gone to f---ing Specsavers because that boy's got a face like a dog's ass. What a shame."

After Chalmers saw that the restaurateur shared his impersonation video, the actor posted a TikTok thanking both his followers and Ramsay.

"Guys, we've done it," Chalmers said in the video. "We have gone and done it.

The video cuts to a screengrab of Ramsay's Instagram feed, and Chalmers goes on to explain how he always thought it would be cool if the chef noticed him one day, but never thought it would happen.

"To chef Gordon Ramsay," he said. "For posting me, for being you, for doing everything you do, thank you." Then he gave one last nod to Ramsay in his signoff, "Now f--- off! OK? Get out!"
