Chances are you’ve seen the video for Bruno Mars’ “That’s What I Like.”

On first glance, the video looks pretty simple. Just Bruno Mars dancing in front of a background. But take another look.

Maybe you didn’t notice the animation at first.

But it really ramps up during the video. Like this:

Yeah. There’s a lot of it.

So while it was a simple video for Bruno Mars, the animator clearly worked his ass off.

No pun intended.

Well one YouTube channel noticed the massive workload the animator undertook and decided to do something about it. Here’s their parody video:

The Key of Awesome did an awesome job summing up the torment and struggles the animator must have dealt with while making this video.

At first, “Bruno” makes fun of the animator’s artistic talents.

But then the animator decides he’s had enough.

Throughout the video, Julio the animator uses his drawings to exact revenge on Bruno.

Animators really know how to use their imagination to put the hurt on a person.

Jokes aside, Kevin Rivera, a.k.a. Young Bruno, really nailed the Bruno Mars impression.

Rivera is no stranger to performing. Videos of Rivera’s dancing on subway trains and in competitions are all over the internet. Rivera’s Instagram account shows off his versatility and talent as a dancer.

Rivera barely even scratched the surface of his talents in the parody of “That’s What I Like.”

If you’re curious about the all the work that went into making the parody video, including the animation, or the person playing Mars, check out this behind the scenes video.

You really gotta watch both videos to see the amount of talent and effort that went into making this great parody video.

This Comedian You Didn’t Know Was Mexican Is Dropping A Stand Up Special On Netflix

Netflix is releasing a Louis C.K. stand up special on April 4th. Simply titled “Louis CK: 2017.” This week Netflix released a pretty straight forward, albeit beautifully shot, trailer showing C.K. prepping behind the scenes.

This is his first special since 2015’s “Live At The Comedy Store” and one of the few projects that, as of recent, hasn’t been released exclusively on his website. Perhaps he’s tired of having to bear the financial brunt of writing, editing, producing, starring and hosting his work online.

Netflix announced back in February that they had reached a deal to acquire two specials from the C.K.

The announcement followed the reveal of some big comedy names coming to Netflix. Chris Rock scored a 40 million dollar deal for two specials with the streaming service. Dave Chappelle nabbed an incredible 60 million dollar deal for three specials. Finally, Seinfeld is coming over to Netflix with his show “Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee.

As you undoubtedly know, C.K.’s dad is from Mexico. Listen to this clip from the Tavis Smiley Show in case you need to hear it from his lips:

Not only is he half Mexican, he’s knowledgeable about Mexico, the racial diversity there, has a Mexican passport and Spanish was his first language, so boom.

In any event, the trailer for his upcoming stand up special, released this week by Netflix, features C.K. getting dressed up like your dad.

In the trailer, he sports an ill-fitting suit (they all seem ill-fitting when you’re used to him in a black t-shirt), big goofy shoes and a tie that screams “put a coffee stain on me.” We also see his pre-show ritual: he shows up just before the show, struggles to change into his clothes, sloshes down some coffee and scarfs whatever food he can fit in his face hole before making people collapse with laughter. All in a day’s work.

Check out the trailer in full below.

The caption on the homepage of the special reads: “Louis C.K. muses on religion, eternal love, giving dogs drugs, email fights, teachers and more in a live performance from Washington, D.C.” Jeez, I hope so!

Catch the new stand up special April 4th on Netflix.
