What Makes Aunt Julie’s TikToks So Funny?

By Steph Esguerra-Olarte for Belo Medical Group on February 26, 2021

Among the many Internet personalities who rose to stardom during the pandemic, one entertainer stands out—Macoy Dubs, aka Mark Averilla in real life. What started out as funny videos where he dubs movie scenes, TV commercials, and music videos, eventually transitioned to hilarious skits capturing real people we’ve encountered once or twice—that grumpy cashier, that fun gay officemate we all have, to now everyone’s favorite, Aunt Julie.

Aunt Julie is Macoy Dubs’ alter ego, a Poveda graduate and widowed mother to Robert, who never goes anywhere without her precious pearls. Friendly, warm, and bubbly, she’s that tita we wish we all had. 

Clearly, Macoy Dubs has hit the nail with the Aunt Julie persona because netizens can’t get enough of her, what with the wildly popular uploads raking in hundreds of thousands to millions of views. What makes her TikToks so darn funny? We’ve listed down some of the top reasons.

  1. You know a tita exactly like her.

We may all have that tita who keeps commenting about our weight, but there are those we’re always happy to see. Aunt Julie has that familiar tita down pat, from the kolehiyala speak, the piled on accessories, the nonstop chika, to that coy sense of humor. 

Each of Macoy Dubs’ videos of her seems like an actual conversation we’ve had with that perky social butterfly tita, which makes them super funny and believable. The high-pitched laughter, the knowing glances, and the hushed voice when we tell her a secret. Even the way she gets annoyed and all sungit like when a delivery arrives late.

  1. She’s a stickler for manners and etiquette.

We’ve all been scolded by a tita for not exhibiting proper decorum, and Aunt Julie captures that perfectly when she’s with Robert. As a viewer of Macoy Dubs’ videos, it’s as if you’re eavesdropping on an actual tita sitting at the next table reminding her kids to call servers by their names or to smile and say hi to one of her high school classmates. Mind your manners!

  1. She’s techie, kikay, and on-trend.

Thanks to her kids, Aunt Julie is constantly updated on the latest trends and social media apps.  She likes having food delivered, plus, she’s trying to know all about Grinder and Bumble, and she has TikTok vids, too! LOL. Being a true sosyal tita, she knows her designer brands by heart and never forgets to give her skin the VIP treatment, care of her kumareng doktora.

  1. She loves to party and she’s naughty.

You may think Aunt Julie is all prim and proper, but she actually has a wild side, with her string of virtual dance parties and drinking sessions with her hermanas.

She also has a naughty side, like when she comments on the “assets” of Roberto’s boyfriends, talks about her high school days dating boys from La Salle or Xavier, or flirts with her love interest, Cesar, who just can’t seem to keep his hands off her. Her sex appeal is off the charts! 

We’re pretty sure that with this list, you’ll be heading on over to Macoy Dubs’ TikTok page to binge on his wacky Aunt Julie uploads. Enjoy!
