Japanese Indie Rock Band Sings & Dances “I’m Filipino” Under Sakura Trees

Day 3:  A Song That Makes You Laugh

There are many songs that make me laugh, but the cover song of Japanese indie visual kei rock band UCHUSENTAI:NOIZ (宇宙戦隊NOIZ) of the Filipino song Pinoy Ako cracks me up whenever I watch the music video.

I already wrote about this song in a previous post titled “Pinoy Ako:  Does UCHUSENTAI:NOIZ Wants To Be Filipino?”.  I’m Filipino-Canadian; I was born in the Philippines.  That’s why I was amazed when I discovered that a Japanese rock band decided to cover Pinoy Ako (I’m Filipino).

Their cover song makes me laugh, not because I’m mocking them.  On the contrary, I’m praising them for their performance, especially in the music video.  It was so funny in a ridiculously cute way.

Like what I wrote in “Pinoy Ako:  Does UCHUSENTAI:NOIZ Wants To Be Filipino?”I find it funny to watch UCHUSENTAI:NOIZ dancing and singing Pinoy Ako under sakura trees and in front of a Japanese temple, wearing the Filipino traditional male clothing called Barong Tagalog.  The whole video was just so hilarious for me as a Filipino, but it also makes me admire the band for taking the time to learn the song and sing it in Tagalog.

Now you know that the cover song of UCHUSENTAI:NOIZ of the Filipino song Pinoy Ako is a song the makes me laugh.  What’s yours?

  1. Take a look at these beautifully made Piña cloths that surely marks as our Philippine pride. We Filipinos are truly blessed with being artistic and creative. We’re loom weaving fibers from Piña and Abaca. Aklan’s Piña fabric is the Queen of Philippine Textiles

    We offer Filipino barong (short jack and long sleeve) for men, ladies barong (hand embroidered), barong calado, shawl, piña cloths (per yard), and handpainted fans. If you are interested, just send us a message.

  2. (Watches the video) Hmm… I have seen Filipinos try to act like Japanese but Japanese trying to act like Filipinos? Good effort there UCHUSENTAI:NOIZ. Anyways, the video is funny and awkward at the same time (for me). We may never know what influenced or inspired them on making that video but if they will make more in the future, then I’m game for it. By the way, I’m a Filipino too. I cannot dye the Barong Tagalog different colors except its natural white one.

    1. I know, right? Good effort from this band. They sang a few other Filipino songs like “Narda” and “Liwanag sa Dilim” and this another song that I forgot the title, so that they could share the profits to the victims of Yolanda. Good for them.

      That’s great to know, Kababayan! Are you living in the Philippines right now, or are you in another country?

      1. Ooooh. Kilala mo pala sila. Ayos ah, napa-balita pa pala sila sa Pilipinas. Sa Youtube ko lang sila na-discover. Oo nga eh, astig kasi naa-appreciate nila ang OPM, hindi tulad ng iba diyan.

        . . .Ay, natamaan ako. XD

      2. I’m in the actual country although I want to go to Akihabara in Japan. I wanna buy Nendoroids there and see the maid cafes to verify if the maids there really are cute looking.
