But this fellow from the Philippines may well be the only one to have ever lip synced the song in a giant furry cape, horror-movie make-up, a fetching cocktail dress, and a long wig full of baby powder.

Rihanna’s rep has come forward today to deny the Daily News’ report that the singer’s been tapped to remake The Bodyguard, starring in Whitney Houston’s career-making role. Wow.
