LOOK: Celebs, brands join in on the now-viral ‘Yeah, I get it… Need pa bang picturan’ trend

The “Yeah, I get. Gagraduate ang anak, but the point is need pa bang picturan” meme has lit up social media.

The meme started when the now-deactivated Facebook user Merlinda Barlis commented on VP Leni Robredo’s post that showed her daughter Jillian at her baccalaureate at New York University (NYU). Since then, netizens put their own spin on the comment, with a ton of copypasta in between. 

Here’s how celebrities and brands made their versions of the meme on the internet: 

On Instagram, Saab Magalona shared a cute snap of her kids, Pancho and Vito, where she referenced the meme.

Actor and entrepreneur Richard Juan looked back on his college days at UP Diliman, sharing a series of throwback photos. “Yes I get it, graduate ng UP but the point is need pa bang picturan? Me: Yes, collage ko pa,” he wrote.

Animo La Salle! Model LA Aguinaldo took a trip down memory lane as he recalled his “Taft boy” days at De La Salle University. “‘Yes I get it Taft boy nga, but the point is need pa bang picturan?’ Yes po opo good boy na dean’s lister pa po,” he wrote. 

Singer-songwriter JK Labajo posted photos of himself during a motocross session with his friends. 

Content creator and influencer Angel Dei showed off her beach body on the ‘gram saying, “Yeah I get it, nagbeach ka, but the point is need pa bang picturan?”

Even former presidential spokesperson Sal Panelo joined in the fun on social media as he congratulated the winning senators who made it to the magic 12. “Yeah, I get it. Nanalo kayong Senador, but the point is need pa bang picturan? Joke lang! Congratulations to our new Senators,” he wrote. 

Panelo also shared an article from PhilSTAR L!fe in the comment section to explain where the meme came from.
