Facebook user Micah Indiola on Thursday, November 26, 2015, has uploaded a video of two Filipino kids singing a different version of the popular Christmas carol written by James Lord Pierpont “Jingle Bells,” and is making the rounds online.
Peculiar as it is, these Filipino kids belted out the song with the lyrics corresponding to what ‘Generation Z’ kids are born in such environment, environment with a highly sophisticated media and computer milieu and likely to be more Internet savvy.
The uploader said she met the young kids while they were out eating with her friends at Isaw Republic near University of Santo Tomas (UST) on Wednesday night.
She claimed they were expecting a good old carol with a usual and common Christmas song both got surprised and took their attention off the track as the kids started to sang a their own version of the said carol. Indiola admitted she find the lyrics are very entertaining and signifies Filipino creativity.
Namamaskong mga Bata
Habang kumakain kami sa "Isaw Republic" around UST last night, may dalawang batang lalaki na nangangaroling. Expected namin na usual at common na Christmas song ang kakantahin nila dahil nga mga bata pa sila. Muntikan na namin silang paalisin pero ng simulan nila ang kanta nila, napukaw ang aming atensyon (deep) sa kakaibang lyrics na inilatag nila gamit ang tono ng Jingle Bells.Isa lang ito sa patunay na magagaling at malikhain ang mga batang Pinoy. Nakakatuwa din na sa paggawa ng lyrics nila inilabas ang curiosity nila kay Santa Claus. Sobrang nakakatuwa ang lyrics, nung tinanong namin sila kung sino gumawa ng lyrics, yung kaibigan daw nila. Nawala ko ang papel na sinulatan nila ng pangalan nila pero sana makaabot ito sakanila. GOOD JOB!!!PS. Naifeature na pala ito sa Eat bulaga by Parañaque Rebels.#NamamaskoPo
