WATCH: Pacquiao sings 'Let It Go' in response to Drake impression
MANILA, Philippines - Manny Pacquiao isn't going to be "frozen" over Drake's impersonation of him at the ESPY Awards.
Pacquiao, who recently beat Chris Algieri to retain his WBO welterweight crown, had his reaction to Canadian rapper Drake's impression of him in July, where he dressed up like the Filipino boxing legend to lampoon his singing career.
The video became a viral sensation due to lines like "To me it's warmer in July so I'm not worried about the May weather" and Drake's version of "Let It Go" from the Disney film Frozen.
The Pacquiao video, which was recorded in September by Top Rank photographer Chris Farina, received widespread exposure this week when it was featured by international sports blog SB Nation.
Pacquiao got a laugh out of Drake's over-the-top Filipino accent impression and even showed him how to do it by singing his own version (and showing off some serious falsetto skills in the process).
In these changing times, courage and clarity become even more important.
