In the photo, Jollibee is joined by Hetty, Twirlie, Mr. Yum and Popo; all mascots of the popular fastfood chain. They are wearing the traditional Filipino wear to celebrate the country’s Independence Day.

Ang cute ni Jollibee. Puwede bang uwi na lang kita [Jollibee is so cute! Can I take him home]?” said Facebook user L.V.

Cute naman nila [They are so cute]! Happy Independence to all Filipinos,” E.G. wrote.

Ready na sila for Independence Day [They are ready for Independence Day],” D.N. commented using the hashtag #ItsATropaThing.

Some also joked about the photo; saying the mascots look like newly-weds and godparents.

Akala ko naman kinasal na si Hetty at Jabee tapos ninang si Twirlie [I thought Hetty ang Jollibe got married and Twirlie’s their godmother],” said AA.

While others are surprised with some “unexpected revelations.” Like J.R., who even tagged the name of her boyfriend.

Baby lalaki si Jollibee [Baby, Jollibee is a guy]. Don’t call me jollibee anymore!” she said.

Likewise, YM noticed that Popo is not a girl.

“Popo in Barong Tagalog! My childhood was so wrong! I always thought and treated my litte Popo toy (back when I was 5) as a girl. Why?” she said.

As of posting, the photo of Jollibee and friends has already generated more than 42,000 reactions and nearly 11,000 shares.
