Fascination with ‘Balikbayan Box’ Captured On Video

Filipino-Canadian artist and YouTube sensation Mikey Bustos is at it again.

Bustos, who has been making videos about Filipino culture, quirks and all, focused his latest work on the “balikbayan box.”

In a television interview, Bustos said that balikbayan box is based on true stories of his parents sending the boxes to their relatives during the holidays.

The video, which has been viewed more than 200,000 times, is a parody of Miley Cyrus’ Wrecking Ball, complete with Bustos riding a box tied on a tree, with a cartoon chicken to “hide” his privates.

Among the funniest lines are “There was so much tape/ I could not open it/ A rope tied around the whole box/ Address written everywhere/ As if we’re blind over here/ And OA naman yung padlocks” and “After using so much force/ I finally managed to get it/ There’s so much newspaper, good Lord.”

Here is the complete video, watch and laugh out loud!
