Totoy Brown, the headphone-wearing and DOTA-playing tambay-turned-nationwide meme sensation, has been found! To those who are hearing about him for the first time, he's the kid featured in this ultra-famous meme:
Totoy, who found web fame for having his face plastered all over Coco Martin's and just about every celebrity who trended this year, was tracked down by the news-magazine TV show Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho. Their manhunt brought them to an 18-year old scrawny kid laboring hard as a tricycle driver in San Leonardo, Nueva Ecija. Totoy Brown's real name: Ric delos Santos. The photo above, it turns out, was taken when he was 12. The iconic blue headphone, however, is still with him.
The Totoy Brown episode, which aired last Sunday, August 25, featured the influx of local memes (our Meme Time photo with LJ Reyes made the cut!) in the past year, Totoy's much-anticipated eyeball session with female counterpart and internet ka-loveteam Neneng Brown (whom Totoy has never met or talked to prior to this episode), and his meet-and-greet moment with his dream girl, Sam Pinto, among others.
Press play on the video below to watch the whole thing:
To Jessica Soho and her team: That's pretty awesome, what you just did.
So, there. It turns out Totoy's DOTA playmates are the ones responsible for the first batch of memes that made the Internet rounds, and that he's gotten his share of bullying both online and in the real world because of his web persona. But on the brighter side of things, he at least got to bond with Neneng Brown, who is actually kind of cute. Now you two go give KathNiel a run for their money!
We promise to never make fun of Totoy Brown again...but we just got to see his meme-fied face one last time. Make the jump to the next page to see The Best of Totoy Brown!
