SPOILER ALERT: The information contained in this post does not hail from The Onion. This actually happened. In real life. In Mexico.
So… Mexican president Andrés Manuel López Obrador (aka AMLO) wrote a letter to Spanish King Felipe VI and Pope Francis urging them to apologize for the “abuses” of colonialism and the conquest, which took place, like, a very long long time ago.
Alas, in this modern, politically-correct times we live, the gorgeous-but-married-mother-of -small-children wants us to drink… non-alcoholic beer, because she’s a lady, you know? and beer is, like, for the dudes.
The following is an ad apparently airing now on Polish television, though several reports say Karmi, the beer for ladies, is making its way to Spain — and beyond.
Well, turns out it’s not only Americans who like to go a litle ethnic when it comes to celebrate Halloween.
Palma de Mallorca, Spain-based Turbo Hobby is promoting a new line of “ethnic” costumes, which include the “Disfraz de mexicano” (Mexican costume) featuring a pink, flowery poncho and some kind of Andaluz-looking hat that I didn’t know was Mexican.
Turbo Hobby’s Disfraz de mexicano comes in adult and child sizes and can be yours for only 14.95 euros.
Chances are you won’t look as cute as the guy in the picture here, but it is very likely that some members of your same gender will express their desire to sneak under your poncho…
It’s been only a few days since I’ve arrived in Spain, and the summer is in full swing, with Spaniards already preparing for their two-month beach extravaganza (financial crisis or not.)
And with the summer and the heat comes the sexy and the daring, including this TV spot featuring the spectacular Amaia Salamanca, best known for her role as Catalina Marcos in the Spanish version of Colombian hit series Sin tetas no hay paraíso.
Watch Amaia as she invites you to get wet, and enjoy the thrills of summer with a Spanish accent (and a tampon safely secured inside.)
“Chargrilled turbot” AND “Andalusian-style chilled gazpacho”? Gee! Next time you feel like boasting about your Sunday brunch… Please, pause a little and show some respect … digo, unless you tell me you actually had all that fancy shit for brunch. I mean, come on!
If you are the best Mexican shoe-shiner specializing in boot cleaning and you live in Spain, the best way to promote yourself is, well, simply by stating the truth: that not only you are a Mexican shoe-shiner but that you are the Best of Mexico (working at the Gran Vía, that is.)
What happens when you merge a tall, good-looking Texan man with a stocky, chubby guy wrapped in the Mexican flag and wearing a wrestling mask?
Answer: you get a Burger King Texican Whopper, yet another “delicious” creation from the hamburger chain.
The print ad hails from Spain, and it pitches the new Texican Whopper, an impossible fusion of cajun sauce, cheddar cheese, meat taco and beans (!) The tagline, Unidos por el destino, means “Brought together by destiny.”
My sources tell me that Mexico’s ambassador to Spain, Jorge Zermeño, has already asked Burger King to take down the ad and apologize –apparently because it offends our already decimated flag, and not our cuisine.
But wait! there’s more: the Texican is also a hit in England and has its own TV spot:
