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.

A Bruno Mars Catfish Seduced a Texas Woman Over Instagram and Scammed Her Out of $100k

A Bruno Mars Catfish Seduced a Texas Woman Over Instagram and Scammed Her Out of $100k

When certain fans say that they’d do anything for their favorite celebrity, we usually assume they mean, in a manner of speaking. But in the case of one Bruno Mars fan, that sentiment couldn’t be more serious.

Recently, a 63-year-old Texas woman was swindled out of $100,000 by a catfish pretending to be Bruno Mars.

Yeah, folks. We’re serious. According to Houston authorities, an unnamed Texas woman sent multiple checks to her online lover–whom she believed to be Grammy-award-winning, multi-platinum artist, Bruno Mars.

According to legal documents, the woman created an Instagram page in 2018 in order to find “companionship”. She was soon thereafter contacted by another Instagram user who claimed to be Bruno Mars. The fraudster sent the woman what she believed was ample evidence–multiple texts and photos that “proved” he was on tour.

According to the Texas woman, she believed that her and Mars had “fallen in love” and developed a “meaningful relationship.” According to court documents, the Mars impersonator even promised to quit his 24k tour in order to be with her.

Once Catfish Bruno gained the woman’s trust, he asked her for $100,000 for “tour expenses.” And the woman complied.

First, the Bruno Mars imposter asked her for a $10,000 check via mail. When the woman sent that, the Mars imposter asked for an additional $90,000. The woman wrote that check as well.

The checks were sent to different accounts owned by two men: a man named Chinwendu Azuonwu and his accomplice, Basil Amadi.

It seems that at some point, the woman became aware that she was being scammed and then contacted the authorities. It was then that the police traced the bank accounts back to Azuonwu and Amadi. The men were then arrested and charged with multiple accounts of money laundering.

After the news broke about the Bruno Mars catfish, naturally, the internet had a few questions.

We get that this woman was lonely and in want of companionship, but there’s a line between desperation and delusion.

Many people were caught between pity and disbelief.

We understand that older people aren’t as tech-savvy, but some common sense would’ve told you that a multimillionaire doesn’t need money from a random lady in Texas.

Some people were calling for a deep-dive documentary, MTV “Catfish” style.

Ok, we’d 100% watch this. We want to know how faux-Bruno wooed her, how she convinced herself a rich celebrity needed money, and how she finally became savvy to the scam.

Another question being asked: who has a cool $100k just sitting around?

And how did the scam artists know to target someone so rich?! We hope she the police were able to recover the money, otherwise this woman is going to have a tough retirement.

Here’s Why Everyone’s Talking About Cardi B’s Horchata

Here’s Why Everyone’s Talking About Cardi B’s Horchata

OK, so everyone’s talking about Cardi B, like always, and for good reason. The Bronx-raised Dominican rapper keeps snapping out hit after hit. Does anyone even remember her first hit single, “Bodak Yellow”? Her debut album “Invasion of Privacy” won the Grammy Award for Best Rap Album, making her the first female solo artist to take home the award.

Then, claro, there’s her hit collaboration with fellow Afro-Latino, Bruno Mars, in “Finesse.” Nobody saw it coming when they announced their second collab together. “Please Me” has officially become the baby-making song of 2019 and the word “Horchata” has taken on a new, not-mami-approved meaning.

The official music video dropped on March 1, 2019, and the visuals are a throwback dream.

Cardi B / YouTube

The video opens up with a ’90s-esque “Somewhere in Los Angeles” graphic overlaying footage of downtown L.A. These two giving us nostalgic feels is everything.

“Theee after party spot” is Tacos Mexico.

Cardi B / YouTube

Cardi always does right by her Latinidad in everything she does. From her Spanglish remix of “Bodak Yellow” to her record breaking “I Like It” single that skyrocketed Bad Bunny to fame, she’s writing music for Latinos and giving voice to Latinos.

The taquería has been around since 1975, and this publicity is going to keep it around for decades to come.

Cardi B / YouTube

“Please Me” is no different. The entire premise is a nod to the Mexican food and culture that props up Los Angeles.

Tacos Mexico has promised it’s sanitized its counters for your eating pleasure.

@iamcardib / Instagram

Just know, Angelenos, that theee Cardi B twerked on the counters. That really happened.

Then, when Cardi walks into the taquería, Bruno Mars’ jaw clenches. ????

Cardi B / YouTube

I’m sweating. The music goes dark and we just hear his heart beating as they make eye contact for the first time.

Let’s just say that things get sensual.

Cardi B / YouTube

We get 3 minutes and 51 unadulterated seconds of Bruno Mars pleading with Cardi to “please me, baby.” Note that Bruno Mars and Cardi B continue to only hire people of color to shine in their music videos together. ????

And then Cardi actually spits this rhyme: “Your pussy basura…”

Cardi B / YouTube

Every time Cardi raps in Spanish, we come alive inside. Though, yes, we see how problematic it is that some of Cardi’s best rhymes are at the expense of other women. So let’s just focus on this next line.

“… my pussy horchata.”

Cardi B / YouTube

She said that. That just happened. Millions of humans are singing along to “my pussy horchata” as of February 15, 2019.

The Internet is living for that line.

@gist4realmedia / Twitter

Having some feelings about the mala in your life? New mantra: “Your pussy basura, my pussy horchata.”

All of a sudden, “horchata” is the new standard for sexiness.

@crisv101 / Twitter

No shade to Jhene Aiko, but the world needed something fresh. Now that ‘something’ is super Mexi, to match the ever more Mexi and Latino world we live in. ????????

Here’s how to use horchata (n.) in a sentence:

@lexmarialynn_ / Twitter

Simple, yet effective. Oooof, the chemistry is sizzling between these two.

Fans are embracing the newly sexualized meaning of horchata.

@sadieramirez_ / Twitter

It’s not just me. All our brains are in the gutter now. That’s just the power of Cardi B and her music.

People are even changing their handles to shoutout to the Bruno Mars in their lives.

@GailTheGossip / Twitter

I don’t want to attract anyone who wouldn’t know what that means. It is something that will definitely be around for a very long time.

Overall, “Please Me” has become a bedroom pop sensation.

@buh_lin / Twitter

The only generation that could come after Generation Z is Generation Cardi B. I said it. We owe human civilization to her beats.

Fans are even trying to convince Cardi to ditch Offset and embrace Bruno.

@teohslg / Instagram

They do make award-winning music together. Would youe be mad if they got together?

Cardi B had to back out of her tour with Bruno, but maybe there’s hope yet for next year?

Cardi B / YouTube

After Kulture came into the picture, Cardi had to back out of her tour so that she could spend more time with her newborn. Please us all, Cardi, and tour with Bruno next year.

Meanwhile, a few guys are feeling for Offset.

@GhostFaceKi11er / Twitter

He’s fine. Everyone’s fine. They’re still happily together vacationing in Cabo, but Offset hasn’t commented on the public’s concerns for the steamship happening on set.

We think the horchata industry is about to boom like no other.

@TeaLalaReport / Twitter

“Please Me” is all about desire that we don’t see fulfilled. Bruno and Cardi steam up the whole place while rarely touching.

But you go get that horchata, girl.

Foodies be warned: you’ll crave a million things watching “Please Me” but none more than tacos.

@MikedelaTorre / Twitter

Pro tip: Tacos Mexico has over a dozen locations in California, all open past midnight. Check out tacosmexico.com to support Mr. Moreno’s taco business. Mexicans creating jobs right there .

Or horchata, depending on your needs. ????

Cardi B / YouTube

We can want everything for Kulture and ship this fantasy couple at the same time, right? #TeamHorchata
