LOOK: Filipinos poke fun at Sam Smith’s ‘unholy chicken’ viral photo

Mummy don’t know Sam Smith’s getting hot at the…deep fryer?

No, the English singer-songwriter is not doing something unholy.

On January 4, Sam Smith took to Instagram to share a photo of him having a good dip in a body of water.

While it may seem like a normal photo for others, well, it became a goldmine for comedy for Filipinos (thanks to our playful attitude and witty minds).

Sam Smith’s newly posted photo wasn’t able to escape the hilarious jokes of Filipinos, with some saying the photo very much resembled a chicken submerged in cooking oil.

With the smooth surface of his back plus the blonde hair and clear water, it kinda looks like it at first glance. Some have called the photo ‘unholy chicken’ and have edited Smith’s body onto an actual photo of a deep fryer.

See some of the hilarious posts below:

Seriously, this photo series from Sam Smith is really different. This one looks like he’s in Tutuban:
