After showing the zombie pandemic-themed movie “World War Z” in one of their vaccination sites, the province of Bataan is at it again after volunteers at one of their COVID-19 vax drives dressed up as heist robbers from Netflix’s wildly popular “Money Heist” (La Casa de Papel) series.

According to the province’s official 1Bataan page, some members of their vaccination team dressed up in the show’s signature red jumpsuits and Dali masks at Vista Mall Bataan, where people lined up for their COVID jabs.

The resemblance is pretty uncanny to the characters in the show, save for the giant syringe in hand, instead of high-powered rifles—a symbol of the local government’s continued COVID-19 vaccination program, according to Bataan’s official Facebook page.

Someone from their logistics team is clearly on a Netflix binge — we wouldn’t be surprised if they donned Squid Game costumes, next.
