(SPOT.ph) Just when you thought 2020 couldn't get any weirder, a new commercial comes in and sets the bar much, much higher. RC Cola Philippines dropped some real outlandish content on their social media pages on Thursday, November 26—and promptly had the online world freaking out. It's hard to explain what the commercial is about: think Maalaala Mo Kaya, suspense, and fever dream rolled into one, so in case you somehow missed it on your feed, check it out below:

Yup. You okay over there? Don't forget to breathe. No commercial has hit us this hard since, well, probably forever, not even those epic one-liners, classic '90s primetime ones, or before-they-were-famous hits, could match up. So it's no surprise that we have so many questions. Is she the real mom? What did the storyboard look like? Why have four glasses instead of one? "Bakit?"

In case you still can't wrap your head around what the f*ck you just watched, we have taken the liberty of providing you some stills to stare at as you ponder life and its many meanings. Check it out below:

So no questions were actually answered, but hey, like they said, sometimes you don't need a reason.

They did say there's no need for a reason.

As the Internet saying goes, "If it's stupid but it works, then it ain't stupid."

We're not sure which genre it falls under, either.

"Glassware racism"

We just want to be sure.
