TAIPEI (The China Post) — A Twitter user recently shared a picture of a “real-life Pringles guy” captured in a supermarket in Taiwan, causing quite a stir among social media users.
The post came in response to a challenge launched by British talk show host John Oliver who asked during his weekly show “Last Week Tonight” what the body of the Pringles guy looks like?
The talk show’s official Twitter account wrote Monday: “Can you help us get to the bottom of this important mystery, @Pringles? Please say yes. Help”
The post has drawn much attention worldwide, with one user posting a life-size Pringles mascot seen in a Taiwanese market.
In the photo, the Pringles mascot is seen with his signature haircut, mustache, and watery eyes, and is dressed in yellow with a red suit jacket.
