As Filipinos celebrated the 119th anniversary of Philippine Independence, netizens took time to add humor to the celebration via the hashtag #RP612fic.
Twitter users added entertaining but fictional elements to the history of the Republic of the Philippines by combining trending photos and moments in pop culture with actual national events & heroes.
Just imagine if these situations really happened in Philippine history!
PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) compiled all these funny #RP612fic tweets that involved trending celebrities, TV moments, teleseryes, and movies.
KRIS AQUINO. Of course, this list won’t be complete without the Queen of All Media Kris Aquino, who has been featured on a lot of memes already because of her quotable quotes in her TV shows.
If she were already alive during the Spanish era, Kris could have been a Katipunera…
...or she could have been Leonor Rivera…
…or just simply a Filipina fighting for the country, together with Ryza Cenon’s Georgia and Bernadette Sembrano!
Kris’s son Bimby would always reveal something about her mom on television, most especially about her love affairs.
Could Kris’s reaction also be the same with that of Jose Rizal’s when people talk about his love life?
IKA-6 NA UTOS. One of the trending teleseryes today is the daytime drama series Ika-6 Na Utos, starring Ryza Cenon, Gabby Concepcion, and Sunshine Dizon.
Just recently, the mall and gym catfights of Emma (Sunshine) and Georgia (Ryza) became viral on social media.
Imagine if Georgia killed our national hero Jose Rizal using a nerf gun!
Georgia can also be “assumed” to be Gabriela Silang, but instead of a bolo knife, she holds a nerf gun!
It would be epic if Jose Rizal’s girlfriends Leonor Rivera and Josephine Bracken also had intense catfights same as those of Emma and Georgia in Ika-6 Na Utos.
They also compared the love triangle of Emma, Rome (Gabby), and Georgia to that of Jose Rizal, Josephine Bracken, and Leonor Rivera.
JOHN ARCILLA. In the past two years, John Arcilla played two iconic characters in pop culture. He portrayed General Antonio Luna in the 2015 movie Heneral Luna and the evil Hagorn in the 2016 fantaserye Encantadia.
Of course, netizens are quick to link these two characters and create a conspiracy theory:
Heneral Luna also allegedly scolded 13 Reasons Why’s Hannah!
Jodi Sta. Maria’s character in Dear Other Self also had a special participation in the Heneral Luna memes.
FOUR SISTERS AND A WEDDING. Bea Alonzo and Toni Gonzaga’s confrontation scene in the 2013 movie Four Sisters and a Wedding has also become a subject of memes.
In #RP612fic, netizens compared Bea’s character Bobbie to Leonor Rivera and Emilio Aguinaldo.
Meanwhile, they related Toni’s Teddie character to Heneral Luna.
Netizens were quick to use the epic hair-pulling catfight scene of Angel Locsin and Mocha Uson and compare it with the classic painting Spoliarium.
PAULO AVELINO. Paulo Avelino is set to portray Gregorio del Pilar in the biopic titled Goyo in 2018.
Being a “suking” subject in memes about good looks, netizens quickly linked his handsome and sexy photos to the Hero of the Tirad Pass.
PRIMETIME SHOWS. Popular shows airing on ABS-CBN and GMA-7 were included in the memes:
Mulawin vs. Ravena
My Love From The Star
...and the long-running primetime series FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano!
Even the Korean drama series Goblin was not spared from the #RP612fic memes!
There were those who revived defunct TV shows that can be linked to Independence day tweets:
Remember when Alden Richards portrayed Jose Rizal in Ilustrado (2014)?
The Encantadia Sang’gres Kylie Padilla, Gabbi Garcia, and Sanya Lopez are also present!
Remember this scene of JC Santos and Kim Molina in Till I Met You? This could have happened to Jose Rizal, too!
How true that Bea Binene’s taong-aso character in Hanggang Makita Kang Muli was first seen in Jose Rizal’s novel Noli Me Tangere?
