Famous YouTube star Mikey Bustos has once again showed his incredible music parodying skill and video editing prowess plus his nationalism as a Filipino after he recently created and uploaded a video showing how to determine if a person is a Filipino; mentioning distinctive traits of Filipinos.
The video starts with actress, DJ and singer Natalia Moon asking Bustos his nationality. The lady tries to figure out the nationality of the gentleman, but is lost.
Mikey then begins a parody of Meghan Trainor’s hit song “No” as his way of humorously explaining how to figure out if someone is a Filipino.
As per Bustos’ video – Filipinos speak Tagalog, has a broad nose, eat with so much rice, has a slanted eye slope, point with their lips, the last to stop singing during videoke sessions, skin color like a coco, dance with bamboos, eat halo-halo, etc.
He also mentioned that Filipinos eat adobo, use tabo in taking a bath, eat with hands while grabbing the rice and packing the meat, remove shoes upon entering someone’s house and nagmamano [kisses the hand of elders], uses po and opo, among many others.
Netizens expressed admiration over Bustos’ creativity in expressing nationalism with humor.
