I was completely entertained when I watched the youtube videos of Manny Pacquiao on Jimmy Kimmel from last night’s show! I mean he is just “SO FILIPINO” …and I don’t mean that in a bad way because that is my heritage, but this guy is an UBER STAR in boxing and of course in the Philippines, but he’s pretty non-chalant and sort of seems oblivious to his celebrity! But getting back to the “SO FILIPINO” part…singing – Filipino’s LOVE to sing and dance, the stereotype is karaoke at family parties and having a magic mic! In Manila there are stages for singing and dancing at the malls and many public places, variety shows on the weekend (the Filipino versions of Sabado Gigante) and have you ever watched MTV’s America’s BEST Dance crew!?!? Up until the last season most of the crews had at least one, if not majority Fil-Am’s dancing with them. So to see Manny singing on national (late night) TV …it’s just funny to me! The song he picked too…lol
Seriously, Pacman seems SO amused to be on the show, and I wasn’t sure if Kimmel was just catching him off guard with questions or if he was just excited to be on American TV…just listen to him laugh, very cute! At any rate, come November 14 ….GO PACQUIAO!! Once he gets past Cotto…I’m hopeful for the eventual fight we all want to see – Pacquiao vs. Mayweather!!
