Is this your balikbayan box?
by FFE Entertainment News Staff
Popular Filipino/Canadian ‘Youtuber’ Mikey Bustos is known for making parodies of popular songs while giving them a Filipino twist, and with his recent take on Wrecking Ball by Miley Cyrus, Mikey’s did it again.
In Mikey’s new video titled Balikbayan Box, the comical singer trifled with the reactions of relatives in the Philippines when they receive balikbayan boxes or care packages from relatives abroad.
He hit the nail on the head as he knitted the topic so hilariously that it has become a hit. Most people see some truth behind the exaggeration in his latest video.
“Whether it be coming from Canada, USA, Dubai, Europe, Australia, other Asian countires, or elsewhere, we Filipinos love to receive a Balikbayan Box from our loved ones abroad! This song is based on a true story!” Mikey said in the video.

Netizens, who clearly relate to the video, sent messages of approval of the song’s very Pinoy theme.
