A few new segments have been posted On the Flipside in the past month or so… I haven’t filmed any new “full” episodes, but that doesn’t mean the content stops! You can watch below and visit http://ontheflipsidetv.com for more!!! 🙂
Red Bull shows us how they welcome NBA All-Star Point Guard Deron Williams to their family!
Miami HEAT superstar Dwyane Wade talks about his latest kicks, the Fly Wade 2.
On The Flipside teams up with Bay Tiger Video Productions to film highlights of a rare, Bay Area appearance by Mike Tyson! The meet and greet took place at Undisputed Boxing Gym where Tyson personally autographed an exclusive lithograph for fans and posed for photos!
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!!
“What happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas” …but sometimes it’s hard to remember exactly what happened in Sin City! For this special edition of On The Flipside, Aubrey Aquino sits down with Hangover star Bradley Cooper to talk about the film and what it was like to work with the former undisputed heavyweight champion of the world, Mike Tyson. Iron Mike makes an impressive cameo in the movie, and shows off his flipside with a rendition of In The Air Tonight by Phil Collins!
It only took Manny Pacquiao 2 rounds to “do his job” and KNOCKOUT the Brit, Ricky Hatton! The Pacman is definitely putting Filipino’s on the map and giving all Pinoy’s something to get excited about. I’m hearing the whispers that Mayweather will be next, sometime later this year. I doubt Floyd is gonna be okay with everyone calling Manny Pacquiao the POUND FOR POUND BEST in boxing. So, bring it on…that’s a fight I’ll have to see in person!
Last night Las Vegas was painted with “Pinoy Pride.” Manny Pacquiao dominated Oscar De La Hoya from the opening bell and won with a TKO. This is a really BIG deal in the Filipino community. I’m sure the celebration in the Philippines is far from over…and no doubt, Filipino-Americans are beaming in the victory too, with a renewed sense of pride in our heritage! I’ve always told people it is very different to be Filipino born in the States… My Dad has an extremely stong affection for his native country, one I don’t quite get, since I’m not from there, but if there’s one thing we Filipino’s do collectively…it’s support our own! Congrats Pacman and thanks for giving us that “CHAMPION” shine!
