See Denver Makeup Wizard Become Lady Gaga, Kimmy K, Manny Pacquiao's Mom


Is Denver's Jan Bonito a makeup wizard or a shape shifter?

Judging by the videos from his Instagram page on view below, he's both.

Bonito's been getting attention for a video in which he transforms himself into a dead ringer for, of all people, boxer Manny Pacquiao's mom. But he's got plenty of other tricks up his sleeve.

In addition to his Manny mama clip, we've included ones in which he duplicates Kim Kardashian's crying face, Cookie from Empire, the Confused Girl of Internet meme fame and Lady Gaga.
