JULIE’S BAKESHOP MASCOT – Netizens from the Philippines can’t help but make the comparison Between Julie’s Bakeshop’s mascot and the viral robot from Squid Game.
Without getting into too many spoilers, Netflix’s “Squid Game” is a series that has zero squids in the entirety of its runtime. But, what it does have is a strong emotional narrative, lovable characters, and a couple of slight nods to the Philippines.
However, the show goes incredibly graphic right off the bat as the Korean kid’s game “Red Light, Green Light” turns into a bloodbath. And, at the center of it all is the creepy Robot that records the player’s movements.
Meanwhile, putting all the deaths behind, Filipino netizens noted how the mascot from Julie’s Bakeshops holds a staggering similarity to the show’s robot.
Purely coincidental or not, the mascot and the robot basically have the same fit. First of all, they have the same hairstyle and overall dress with matching shoes and socks. But, what is the history behind the mascot and the robot? Who wore the fit first?
According to Everything Cebu, Julia Gandionco opened the first Julie’s Bakeshop was in Mandaue, Cebu on January 6, 1981. Afterward, the first branch that opened outside of Cebu was in Iloilo in 1988 and has expanded its reach ever since.
