Here’s the interesting thing about these omnipresent memes, a twitter user claims that Facebook pages which obtain thousands of likes, are paid to disperse these memes as a part of Unique Tour’s promotion.

“binayaran ang mga fb pages na maramjng likes at gumagawa ng memes, binayaran sila para gumawa ng memes ni unik para pag usapan kase malapit na tour o concert ni unique. Teknik po yun. Tropa ko nagsabi. :(“

Either his theory is a fact or not, it seems that it is effective and fetching. However, it also receives negative feedback from those who had enough of these memes.

“Hard to swallow pill is yung corny naman talaga yung unique memes pero shems let people enjoy”
