In today’s world of uncertainty and existential dread, we all can’t help but ask the universe some answers amidst all the confusion – this unspoken urge to scream ‘because???‘ into the abyss with a pained look on our faces.
If only we had a certain meme that can capture this universal feeling. Wait, we already have that?
Enter PH’s latest hilarious entry into the memer hall of fame: Kris Aquino’s relatable AF ‘because??‘. Born from the frustrating KrisTV interview with a tearful Kim Chiu back in 2014, the meme entered PH interwebs in 2019 – and it’s now making a hilarious 2021 comeback.
‘Naiiyak nanaman ako,‘ Kim starts (1:20) as she recalls her gratitude for her fans.
‘Kasi?’ Kris probes.
‘Kasi… yung mga…’
‘Mga?’ Kris asks again, now beginning to look annoyed AF.
‘Syempre na-touch ako sa mga, sa, [5 second crying sounds] ano ba yan.’
‘So na-touch ka because?’
It’s comedy gold, people.
Numerous memes have now popped out on our TLs and Twitter feeds, ranging from Psychology, Attack on Titan, to pretty much anything involving the frustration of an unanswered ‘because???‘
We feel your pain, Kris.
