Manny Pacquiao is known for his passions beyond the ring. While the 2022 Philippine presidential candidate is recognized for his varied side quests (which at times may be a reach), his attempt to step foot into the music industry was iconic yet short-lived.
While we’re left to wonder what may have been if PacMan dropped his gloves for the mic instead, artificial intelligence (AI) seemingly provides an answer. Tamtamim1006’s Tiktok videos feature an AI that somewhat mimics Pacquiao’s signature vocals, with covers from the Plain White T’s “Hey There Delilah,” Taylor Swift’s “All Too Well,” to Mayonnaise’s iconic anthem “Jopay”.
