One of Drake’s more notable bits when he hosted the ESPYs a few weeks ago was the skit he did mocking Manny Pacquiao.
Drake dressed like Pac-Man and did a great impression of Manny singing. The bit was funny overall — Drake’s impression of Pacquiao was spot-on — but does that mean it went over well with Manny and his fans?
In an interview with GMA Network in the Philippines, Pac-Man addressed the Drake skit.
“Tumawa na lang ako (I just laughed),” he said.
Pac-Man then said he understood Drake was just doing it for entertainment purposes.
“Raket lang niya ‘yun (That’s just one of the things he does to earn money).”
This is exactly what makes Pacquiao so beloved. The guy is very good-natured and doesn’t even seem to be bothered when someone is making fun of him.
One of the people who was getting his laughs at Manny’s expense was Floyd Mayweather Jr., who was in the audience. Maybe Floyd should let Manny have a chance to get some revenge in the ring. Yeah, like that will ever happen.
