That was my reaction too. Anyway, before any else, watch the video below. I knew Imelda was influential but it kinda strikes a chord when you see her with legendary figures like Castro and Mao. Hmm now that I've mention it, the video is so Evita and her Rainbow Tour.
The second video explains the story behind the inspiration. Thanks David Byrne and Fat Boy for putting the spotlight on the Philippines again. After all, Imelda was supposedly the most famous Filipino until Pacquiao came along.
