This Hilarious Twitter Thread Shows Filipinos and Brazilians Are More Alike Than We Think
What do you know about Brazil? Probably just the basics: that it’s a country in South America, that a majority of the people speak Portugeues, and that it hosted the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio De Janeiro.
But it seems Filipinos and Brazilians have more similarities than we previously thought.
Twitter user Miss King (@niigoki_), who says she is a “Brazilian with a lot of Filipino friends,” started a Twitter thread enumerating all the ways that her countrymen and Filipinos are alike.

And then, ”the most secure Anti Burglary System” in the world, a common sight in many Filipino homes, but which is apparently also widely seen in Brazil.

Then there’s the famous Cristo Redentor in Rio. A similar statue of Jesus Christ also exists in San Fernando, La Union in the Philippines.

Miss King goes on to post hilarious videos showing more similarities between Filipinos and Brazilians.

Even the secret language of gay people:
both countries' LGBT communities came up with their own lingo that straight people just will not understand. filipino "Beki language" and brazilian "Pajubá" use borrowed terms from other languages and pop culture references! pic.twitter.com/HznZkOEJG0— miss king (@niigoki_) May 22, 2021
So in conclusion, it’s time we high-fived our Brazilian brothers and sisters.
