Pop star Jay Chou gave fans the heebie jeebies yesterday, after posting a photo of his traditional winter solstice snack on Facebook.

The close-up photo features large “tang-yuan”, or sticky rice balls with Chou’s face super-imposed over each ball.

The post received over 1,000 comments, with many expressing disgust, but still enjoying the hilarity.

One fan commented “Even though he’s an idol, it’s still oddly terrifying.”

Another netizen pointed out that the Jay Chou tang-yuan look remarkably similar to the egg-like Pokemon “Exeggcute”.
