Filipino folklore is full of mythical creatures from the bigfoot-like Kapre to the man-eating blood-sucking witch Manananggal.

Now these strange beasts are the unwitting subjects of Canadian-born Filipino singer and video producer Mikey Bustos’ latest project.

“We Filipinos have some really crazy mythical beings. Imagine they were all rap stars!” he says on his Facebook page.

Well, you don’t have to imagine anymore because with the help of copious amounts of face paint, Bustos transforms himself into several creatures and raps about what they get up to.

Bustos even makes a special appearance as controversial U.S. boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. ahead of his May 2 fight against Filipino legend Manny Pacquiao.

The 33-year-old former Canadian Idol contestant is known for producing hilarious Pinoy music videos, which he posts on his YouTube channel.
