Move over 7-Eleven, 8-Twelve is here.

You wouldn’t believe what’s taking the internet by storm. Facebook user Joed Barallas posted a photo of a curiously named convenience store on his page a couple of days ago that has since gone viral:

Yep, you read that right.

Joed Barallas took the photo in Brgy Tabugon, Sta. Elena, Camarines Norte, during a stopover on his way to Bicol. The familiar color scheme and the wordplay on the name caught his attention.
