J David Alvarez, aka DavidAlvareeezy, has been giving audiences a look at the fun side of being Mexican for years on YouTube. He has a whole series dedicated to it called #GrowingUpMexican. However, commentary on Mexican families isn’t all that Alvarez brings tot he camera. The YouTuber brings a lot of personality to the different characters he portrays. Here are five videos to show the social media star’s range and comedic chops.
He totally nailed the experience of celebrating Christmas with your Mexican family.
Nothing is funnier than finding one person for everyone to pick on during major family events. However, it totally sucks when you are the one on the receiving end of the jokes. Seriously, have you ever tried to exist in a safe space but constantly felt attacked? That’s life with a Mexican family.
He even keeps things relevant in the funniest way because trending topics matter.
Everyone has been debating this since the video first hit the internet. Do you hear Yanny or Laurel? While most of us might already feel sick from hearing this over and over, Alvarez came through with a really fun twist on the controversy. Imagine how awkward it must be to live as a Laurel in this crazy world.
Dude even has those rapid fire jokes ready to go.
This is funny and all, but I could never joke with my mom that I had been arrested. You just can’t do that with Latina moms. However, being able to walk away from this and tell the story is pretty remarkable. Way to go.
There’s always time for some pie…in the face.
While all of the beauty vloggers are showing us how to beat our faces, Alvarez literally gets his beat with whipped cream pies. It also low key shows that fifth graders are mush smarter than any of us and we should all be ashamed.
But it is clear that he is at his best when he takes it back to his roots and gives us the Mexican content so many people crave.
Low key, though. Most of this stuff transcends all nationalities. Every Latina mother, whether Mexican, Cuban, Venezuelan, or Colombian, have a hand chancla they keep around just to teach us a lesson. #Nostalgia
