At least according to Filipino stand-up comedian Jo Koy. When asked why Filipinos love Dr. Pepper so much, he replied: "Dude! I’m going to take a picture of my fridge right now! There’s Dr. Pepper in there! I don’t know man! It’s so damn funny! My sister is a Dr. Pepper fanatic, like she will go crazy if she comes in the house and there’s no Dr. Pepper. She’ll get mad. She’ll even call me, ‘I’m an hour away, is there any Dr. Pepper or do I need to stop by Ralphs?’ It’s so pathetic."
