SPOILER ALERT: These latest mash-up of “Game of Thrones” and commuting in the Philippines are totally relatable and funny!
“Game of Thrones” is arguably one of the most-watched television shows by Filipinos. This HBO series is an adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s books, which tell the stories of the different houses and characters in the Kingdom of Westeros claiming for the right to the iron throne.
Filipinos love this TV show so much that they are willing to brave the rush hour traffic, horrid commute, stench and sweat of everyone just so they can watch it on their TV or laptop screens.
Through the creativity of some netizens, can you believe that the beloved show can be connected to commuting via the MRT in the Philippines?
Here are some of the perfect memes that Filipinos have come up with that you will surely be able to relate to.
Single Journey vs. Beep cards
The photo perfectly shows what MRT riders experience everyday especially when they’re trying to enter the platform. The lines of people buying single journey tickets are so long that the people with Beep cards on-hand are having a hard time passing thru.
In Cubao Station, the train gets filled up quickly because many MRT commuters ride from that station.
Ayala Station is where most of the MRT riders alight to; hence, it’s like a war out there trying to get out with many other commuters trying to get ahead of each other.
Ladies are somewhat lucky because they have their own designated cabin. Unfortunate for whomever they’re with because sometimes, they just have to part ways and meet each other on their destination.
(Don’t) Hold the door!
Lastly, the lovable character Hodor in the most heartbreaking scene in the series is connected to the people who should be standing “clear of the closing door.”
