Here's a rare sight of Metro Manila: long stretches of empty roads and calm streets.

We flew a drone camera across the city, from Monumento to SM Mall of Asia, on May 3 during the infamous Pacquiao-Mayweather fight. From 10 a.m. to a little past 1 p.m., Metro Manila sure was empty. It's a little disjointing — we're all used to the city choked up in traffic, right? — but also, a whole lot mesmerizing.

Couple that with the fact that hardly any crimes were reported on that day, as well and you think to yourself, yes! It can be done.

Not very many people can do this. In our minds, just maybe Jesus (Good Friday and Dec. 25, y'all) and well, Manny Pacquiao.

Of course, all the choking and the anxiety were found inside cinemas, bars, and parks that were screening the fight, but that's another matter all together.

Anyway, enjoy the video!
