MANILA -- It was well-documented, the buying binges: as fears over COVID-19 grew because of the alarming rise in cases, people across the world started stripping supermarkets of --among many other things-- toilet paper, anticipating a potential quarantine. 

But you know who did not join this trend, which has led to stores rationing their products, at least according to comedian Jo Koy? Filipinos. 

That's because of the "tabo," he playfully introduced to his followers this Friday. 

Holding one to his face, the stand-up encouraged his non-Filipino fans to use it because of how simple it is to do so, and that it actually "saves" the environment by lessening the need for toilet paper. 

He asked them: "Why wipe your ass when you can wash your ass with a tabo." Check it out below:
