MANILA - Japanese visual kei rock band, UchuSentai:Noiz, has released a third video in a series of OPM covers, this time putting an own spin on the hit anthem, "Pinoy Ako."

The highly energetic music video, uploaded on the band's official YouTube channel on Friday, sees each member wearing a colored Barong Tagalog --a traditional Filipino formal wear--while dancing in Tokyo.

The song, which was originally sung by local band Orange and Lemons, was used as the official theme song for the first season of the hit reality series "Pinoy Big Brother."

In an earlier report from TV Patrol's Marc Logan, the band's vocalist, known as Angel-Taka, was seen visiting victims of super typhoon "Yolanda" in Tacloban City.

He gamely sang along with the children and even shot part of the band's music video for their cover of Rivermaya's "Liwanag Sa Dilim" in the province.

The band, in the report, compared Filipinos to "superheroes" because of their ability to smile through calamities.

The band dedicated the series of videos to the victims of Yolanda.

"You are the 'Light in the Dark.' You are the 'Superhero.' You are the 'Pinoy.' Tacloban still needs your help," the band wrote, alluding to the titles of the songs the band decided to cover.

Other members of UchuSentai:Noiz, which translates to "space squadron/ranger," include Masato, Kyo, Kotaro and Yamato.

The band first shot to fame, locally, when they released their cover of Kamikazee's "Narda" back in 2013.
