The RC Cola ad has spawned memes and we’re not sure what to feel about it
Over the weekend RC Cola uploaded a nightmare fuel on our timelines and we’ve been scarred ever since. Their shocking albeit memorable ad featured a mom who has an RC Cola bottle for a head and her son who has four glasses stuck on his back. It seems like the internet is coping with the shock the only way they can — by making memes. And here we have Jessica Soju and her brother, Park Soju. Enjoy.
We’re excited for Four Sisters Before the Wedding
Cathy Garcia-Molina’s 2013 masterpiece that is Four Sisters and a Wedding will remain one of the most iconic movies in Philippine history and that is not an exaggeration. It gifted us with lessons on family, love, finding oneself, and the glorious scene where this one girl gets dragged by the hair. And because we loved it so much, it’s going to have a prequel that looks equally as well-written. Starting Dec. 11, Four Sisters Before the Wedding will be available on KTX.ph, Iwant TFC, IPTV, Cignal PPV, and Sky Cable PPV for P150. It stars Alexa Ilacad as Bobbie, Gillian Vicencio as Alex, Charlie Dizon as Teddie, Belle Mariano as Gabbie, and Clarence Delgado as CJ, and Carmina Villarroel and Dominic Ochoa as the parents.
