Weng Weng Rap is a musical tribute to the Philippines's beloved 2' 9" tall superspy, the star of such films as For Your Height Only (audio clips). (Some lyrics mildly NSFW.)

I really can't believe this has never been linked to hear before. It's the only reason I have never posted it.

That amazing little bastard.

His stunt double appears to be some sort of inanimate object.

Does Weng Weng do his own stunts and martial arts?

I read it as "Philadelphia" instead of "Philippines" -- so I was much more entertained than I expected to be.

Weng Weng Rap is nice, but 2 feet 8 inches too tall. If I could only have one undersized crime fighter I've gotta go with Inch High Private Eye.

That video was twice as long as Weng Weng.

I love Weng Weng, and For Your/Y'ur Height Only has long been one of my favorite pieces of celluloid. There's a documentary supposedly coming out next year on the fantastic little fellow called The Search For Weng Weng, and even if it never reaches a theater near you, the corresponding website is a blast full of Weng Weng greatness.

He's dead. He was a primeval dwarf?

Man, I just heard the song via the remix on Kenny vs. Spenny.

A189Nut: I think you mean primordial, not primeval, in which case, yes.

OH MY GOD! That was seriously one of the most amazing things I've ever seen.
