A Mexican fútbol fan (most likely a chilango) traveled all the way to Qatar and brought with him a huge speaker blasting my country’s famed “¡Se compran.. colchones .. tambores .. refrigeradores … estufas … lavadoras … microondas … o algo de fierro viejo que vendan!” a recording that is now used by thousands of peddlers of scrap metal all over Mexico.
I have no idea who this dude is but he rules. (Oh and the vid is NOT mine, I sort of “borrowed” it from the Internet.)
This is what happened. On Wednesday morning, Sweden beat Mexico 3-0, but Mexico managed to advance to the next round of the 2018 World Cup because Germany was eliminated after falling 2-0 to South Korea on the same day.
This, of course, made it for a massive Mexican-Korean party worldwide that I’m sure will last all day long –and probably will go on for the long weekend and until the next Mexico game (Monday, July 2.)
As soon as the news of the German defeat broke, Mexicans in the stadium started to chant and hug each other even when their team was losing 3-0 to Sweden and was clear it will never recover. Chilangos in Mexico City, meanwhile, took to the streets and marched all the way to the South Korean embassy to thank Koreans for “their service” in the most awesome way; singing the popular Cielito Lindo, bringing gifts to the Korean Ambassador and lifting random Koreans in arms and cheering them on. ¡Hermano, coreano, ya eres mexicano!
Similar scenes were recorded everywhere, from New York to Moscow and from Los Angeles to Seoul.
There’s a ton happening right now, but CLICK ON the following slideshow to see only a few of the best memes regarding our new hermanos coreanos.
As the world preps for the biggest Latin party in the whole wide world (i.e. the World Cup) Mexican lingerie brand Vicky Form has come with an awesome idea to make us, ladies, enjoy the Cup like our HOMBRES!
But how? I’m glad you asked. I give you the world’s first ever vibrating panty, one that can be yours for only $999 pesitos and will vibrate to make you and your partner … come, I guess, during the entire tournament. Here’s the promise:
Until today women have not shared with their partners the passion with which they enjoy the soccer matches. That’s why we developed Feel the Game (Siente el Juego) the first smart panty that is synchronized with the games to transform the intensity of the plays in vibrations.
This blogger’s favorite Peruvian artist is back on the scene, this time with a video filmed in Iquitos, Peru cheering for Peru’s National Soccer team and –for the most part– thanking coach Ricardo Gareca for taking the team to a World Cup after so many years! (36 to be precise.)
Mind you, the lyrics of this thing are just as awesome as the visuals. Here’s a taste:
Peru, positive claws for all my boys
Thank you, Gareca, for taking us to the World Cup after all these years
Thank you, boys, we’re one voice
Let’s all yell together the goals of Peru, trah-lah-lah
It is only eight days before Mexico faces South Africa in the first match of this year’s 2010 FIFA World Cup tournament. So, the folks from the Mexican national soccer team are busy making, well, Bimbo sandwiches… which is not at all bad, because they could be drinking and smoking…
