On the eve of lockdown in Metro Manila on Aug. 5, Philippine National Police Chief Guillermo Eleazar said that the police will implement “tiny bubbles” in Metro Manila during the Enhanced Community Quarantine.

What the police chief meant was all cities in Metro Manila would be considered individual bubbles.

But some netizens were thinking otherwise.

For titos and titas, “Tiny Bubbles” is a popular Hawaiian song in the 60s and 70s. It’s also a favorite dance number during school programs in its heydays.

Since it debuted on music chart in 1968, it has been covered more than 30 times.

The words “tiny bubbles” did not escape the creative minds of netizens.

Memes and jokes about the Hawaiian song become one of the favorite topics on social media.

Some comments about Eleazar mentioning “tiny bubbles.”

“Breaking News: Nora Aunor has been appointed as the NCR Tiny Bubbles Czarina. Char!”

“Ladies and gentlemen, here to perform “Tiny Bubbles,” please welcome the one and only Superstar – NORA AUNOR!”

“Next Lockdown Term!”
