WATCH: Mikey Bustos sings 'That's My Yaya Dub' for Maine Mendoza, fans
MANILA, Philippines – YouTube star, actor, and singer Mikey Bustos is quite literally singing the praises of one Maine Mendoza, the actress who plays the now famous Yaya Dub character. Yaya Dub is one half of the #AlDub tandem, with on-screen partner Alden Richards. The AlDub segment shows on long-running noontime show Eat Bulaga.
In the video, snippets of Maine's popular Dubsmash videos can be seen as Mikey sings along. "In her soul / I can see / something sweet / like honey / let me be your baby / and call me maybe / okay, fine, just call me Mikey!" he sings.
"A million angels sing / oh when she smiles / I'm in love / She's the yaya of my heart / the yaya whom I love," he continues, holding a stick of isaw, popular Filipino street food.
Mikey also sings about Maine's fun spirit and wit and how she's charmed him with all her antics online.
At the end of the video, Mikey can be heard asking Google how old Maine is – and when Google says she's only 20, Mikey says, "20 years lang? Okay, never mind!"
Singer Jimmy Bondoc also shared his song inspired by the tandem. The song is called "Yaya."
Perennially trending on Twitter, #AlDub most recently set yet another Twitter record with over 25 million tweets generated by #AlDubEBForLove. (READ: IN PHOTOS: PH stars, fans celebrate 'National Pabebe Wave Day')
The AlDub tandem was born out of Eat Bulaga's "Juan For All, All For Juan" segment, where the characters Alden and Yaya Dub are in love, but kept apart by Yaya's boss, Lola Nidora. Most recent episodes have seen Yaya and Alden finally having their first date and taking their first selfies together.
