UPDATE: Travis Kraft is half-Filipino according to ultimatepinoyhunks.org (DO NOT OPEN AT WORK. I’m at a cafe and its already awkward enough).
Where the hell do I even start. After some discussion with my roommate, JipShady, we’re not sure if this guy, Travis Kraft (actor/director/model/cook/Asian aficionado) of TravisKraft.com is meant to be satire.
The man became (in)famous for this video, where he teaches us how to cook Chicken Adobo while SPEAKING TAGALOG. Considering only ONE of my 2 billion Catholic school Filipino classmate friends speak Tagalog, this guy must really be into the culture (and yes, I definitely consider this a fetish cause he loves the culture so much, he actually digs Filipino food). You know I’m not kidding, right? Cause I actually do appreciate me some Adobo.
And in case you want to see him in other videos:
How to Make Dinuguan (YUM! Pork Blood Stew! Not kidding, I like pork blood):
How to defend Asian people against the Blacks:
Him being interviewed by a Filipino TV station:
And in case my Korean American friends in K-town feel left out, here’s an amazing video montage of LA K-town that ends with an Asian brother getting strangled. THIS IS ART.
Just another case of the White Man appropriating Asian culture? Sure. Anything we can do he can do better? Maybe. Is it funny? Kinda. Do I hate the man? Yes.
