Mexican Entrepreneurship Knows No Limits – Green Energy Edition

Say what you will about my people (i.e. The Mexicans) but they’re just always striving for a better country –and planet.

Take the latest narcotunnel, found on the U.S.-Mexico border, which not only features awesome ventilation and lighting, but works with –wait for it– solar energy.

Netflix Readies Show about Rich, Scandinavian-looking Mexicans 🙄

What could possibly go wrong?

I’m sure at this point you’re well aware of Mexico’s Scandinavian-looking talent, the ones that get all the TV gigs and –unsurprisingly– hail from FRFs (Filthy Rich Families.)

Add one more to the list, as Netflix this week will premiere Made in Mexico, its first reality series about, well, rich, white Mexicans.

Produced by a non-Mexican production company (Love Productions USA,) Made in Mexico seeks to “cast a light on Mexico City’s wealthy families and their opulent lifestyles as it trails nine socialites.”

Made in Mexico debuts September 28 in all territories where Netflix is available and this blogger will be watching –of course.

CVS y más: Like a Regular CVS but … Hispanic

Austin, TX correspondent, Sara Inés Calderón, spotted this on Stassney & S Congress Avenue, so this blogger had to go dig deeper into the meaning of “y más.”

And, oh, have I news for y’all! According to an inexplicably long press release:

CVS “truly understands that Hispanic customers are looking for a more personalized shopping experience where they can find their favorite brands at competitive prices, convenient services, and a higher level of customer service in an envirorment [SIC] where they feel at home.”

Heck, they have their own Website and all.

Besides typos, I couldn’t find a mention of tacos in this whole thing, so I’m NOT interested.

Michael Kors Embraces Mexican ‘Jergas’ –Because Fashion

Move over, Amazon’s Deluxe Yoga Mat… here comes the Michael Kors jerga-inspired sweater, making its debut this week at New York’s Fashion Week.

You might think this is, like, wow, but if you happen to be Mexican, chances are you’ve either worn one of these or saw it at your local tianguis for about… 10 pesitos.

The only good news is that Mexican Twitter isn’t having any of this:

Celebrate Mexican Independence Like the Locals

I hope by now you are aware that Cinco de Mayo is NOT Mexico’s Independence Day. Sixteen of September is, and the bash actually kicks off on the night of the 15, so by the time the 16 actually arrives, everybody is just too drunk to remember anything.

I might be a gringa now, but that doesn’t mean I’m not still a Mexican, so I decided to put together a quick list of the Five Things you Must Do to Celebrate El Grito in this increasingly globalized country.

1. Buy a Made-in-China Mexican flag

2. Go to your nearest Walmart and stock up on the cheapest non-Agave Tequila. (The real thing is too expensive for the average Mexican, and its production is already exclusive for exporting to gringos.)

3. Tell your wife you want your pozole spicy, even if she cannot afford to buy meat anymore.

4. Tune in the Canal de las Estrellas to witness our pathetic president yell ¡Viva México! repeatedly

5. Yell ¡Viva México! — repeatedly — right after our pathetic president. Hopefully by this time you’ll be too wasted on the fake-Tequila methanol to feel any shame.

Repeat as many times necessary until you feel a true patriotic fervor.

¡Viva México! ¡Viva México! ¡Viva México!

BONUS:

If anything else fails, go get a Texican Whopper or a Quesalupa. See you on the 16th as everyone will be most likely be puking somewhere.
