This Latino Car Dealership in California Wants you to Buy a Nissan, Bash Donald Trump

Tómala, Tómala....

Tómala, Tómala….

The world’s awesomest car dealership has produced the world’s awesomest commercial, in which we see the dealership’s general manager bashing a Donald Trump piñata, after which he declares:

Aquí en Van Nuys Nissan, los latinos mandan.” (“Here at Van Nuys Nissan, Latinos rule.”)

This blogger thinks this commercial should win a Lion at Cannes or something. Alas, the corporate suits over at Nissan Motor Co. have decided to distance the company from the ad, because… corporations.

So, boooooo, Nissan. Don’t be surprised if the next piñata my people come up with is one of your own Carlos Ghosn.

Mexican Entrepreneurship Knows no Limits


For the monolingual crowd: This auto repair shop in Mexico City is called “El Chapo,” simply because it specializes in car exhaust systems (escapes in Spanish.)

Bravo, bravo!

The Mexican Flag Flies in Paris, and NOT Because I’m Here


… But because moronic French President François Holland had the “brilliant” idea of inviting Enrique Peña Nieto as guest of honor at the military parade and other ceremonies marking France’s July 14 national holiday.

I don’t know you but I feel like throwing a month-old baguette on the heads of Holland, Peña Nieto, his wife and their 490+ entourage, who landed on this country just to eclipse this blogger’s visit.
