Jagmeet Singh has gotten quite a bit of attention from celebrities in recent days, including an Instagram follow (and unfollow) from Drake and Rihanna.
But today Singh got some recognition from a more local Toronto celeb: Uncle Tetsu himself.
The creator of Toronto's favourite Japanese cheesecake posed for a photo with the leader of the NDP, and Singh tweeted it out saying "He gave me one of his cheesecakes. So I’m feeling pretty good right now."
I just met Uncle Tetsu - like THE Uncle Tetsu - in Toronto. He gave me one of his cheesecakes. So I’m feeling pretty good right now. pic.twitter.com/miEUFxyXau— Jagmeet Singh (@theJagmeetSingh) October 15, 2019
Twitter users got quite the kick out of seeing the politician and the cheesecake mogul together, and some couldn't believe how much the real Uncle Tetsu looks like the cartoon on the bags.
He looks like his logo! That's amazing.— Munkeygutz (@Munkeygutz) October 15, 2019
But while some focused on the resemblance, others said they didn't even know Uncle Tetsu was a real person.
HE'S A REAL PERSON AND NOT JUST A MASCOT?— John Thurner (@JRThurner) October 15, 2019
Some NDP supporters said they simply couldn't decide who was luckier to have a photo with the other.
I don’t know who is luckier!!!— Meli Mar (@MeliMaher) October 15, 2019
But while not everyone agrees on who should be the next Prime Minister of Canada, it seems everyone can agree on the quality of Uncle Tetsu's famous Japanese cheesecake.
