Tagalog In Western Media

I always get a kick out of hearing Tagalog spoken by non-Filipinos or when it's being shown in Western media. Here are some examples:


FAMILY GUY - Stewie speaking Tagalog

An episode of Family Guy featured a gay Filipino character. This deleted scene was included in the DVD boxset.





THE ROCK - Cursing Angry Chef

I first saw this film years back with my dad and brothers. We all screamed in delight when we heard the guy yell. A shame how the subtitle says "Speaking Japanese".




SKITTLES TV Ad

Here's something unique: a Filipino actually speaking Tagalog in a TV commercial shown in America.
MESSAGE TO ADVERTISERS: WE WANT MORE TAGALOG IN TV ADS!






American Tara Lynn Smith singing "Hawak Kamay"

Cute girl singing Tagalog is always very very cute. ^_^ v




Isiak Holiday Jr. singing "Sana Maulit Muli"
Apparently, he has become so well-known in the Philippines he was featured on the popular game show Wowowee. Cool.
