A long-running variety show on Philippine television is Eat Bulaga!
The ‘Eat’ part is English and it has something to do with the fact that the show comes on at noon when people are about to have lunch. When it started in 1979, the show’s title was written as Eat… Bulaga!
You’re starting to eat lunch and then the comedians come on the television to surprise you. Eat… Bulaga!
Eat Bulaga experienced a massive revival in 2015 with the phenomenon generated by the AlDub love team on its Kalyeserye segment.
On July 30 (Saturday), 2016, the prevailing hashtag on social media in the Philippines was #EBisLove in honor of the show’s 37th anniversary.
