A ‘Paisa’ Just Covered ‘Despacito’ and It’s Completely Insane

YouTube

Have you had Luis Fonsi’ “Despacito” Remix on loop for almost two weeks now? You’re not alone. In fact, millions of people cannot get enough of this song, which is why it broke a freakin’ record. According to Billboard, the remix of “Despacito” is the first “mostly Spanish-language” song to hit the top 10 of Billboard’s Hot 100.

“Despacito” has become a cultural phenomenon. Case in point: This hilarious cover featuring Tiburcio.

Yastin (Justin Bieber) sing in Español? Latinos taking over poquito a poquito.

You probably have a lot of questions. So let’s start with the obvious:

Who is this man named Tiburcio?

I’m pretty sure it’s my friend’s corny dad from Guadalajara, but his YouTube page says this: “My name is Tiburcio. You say it, Ti-Bur-Cio. I make the Paisa Zumba. I am famoso in Facebook. I like tacos and go everywhere.” Enough said.

What exactly is Tiburcio singing about? Justin Bieber, dancing, and tacos.

“Justin Bieber is singing en español,” Tiburcio sings. “No one tell Trump porque se acaba el mundo.”

The storyline is another bit of insanity!

In the video, a lovely Latina is trying to get Tiburcio’s attention but the damn man is clueless!

When he finally catches on, her flirty ways are just too much for him.

Do these two have a happy ending? Tiburcio seems pretty happy to trade tacos for the girl.

Large Audience Helps “How To Be A Latin Lover” Reach Number 2 On Opening Weekend, Surprises Everyone But Latinos

PantelionFilms / Youtube

The film “How To Be A Latin Lover,” whose title and trailer originally made some people cringe a little, did exceptionally well at the box office this weekend. The film features Mexican comedy star Eugenio Derbez and actress Salma Hayek as siblings reunited. The film was second at the box office only to “F8: The Fate Of The Furious,” which is itself an international phenomenon with millions of fans worldwide and sequels galore. What I’m saying is it did pretty well up against a giant.

It really looked like they had on-screen chemistry. You don’t really slap someone unless you care. At least that’s what abuela told me.


Lots of people on Twitter reacted positively to the film.

Some people were in tears.


Others highlighted that it appealed to them for being bilingual.

It’s rare to find a film that appeals to a bilingual audience.


This person liked it so much, it made her forget how percentages work.

But her math checks out if you do long division. How, you say? Um, because trust me.


And apparently in some places, the film’s draw was so huge they could barely fit people in the theater.

I guess don’t all go at 8, guys?


Not everyone who saw “Latin Lover” loved it, though.


Some went in with high hopes and were disappointed.

I guess if you’re expecting a high-brow film, from a trailer with poop jokes, you might be disappointed, too.

Some really didn’t like it.

Alexis Pereira Commentary

Any takers on this bet? This comedian, Alexis Pereira, had some interesting dissenting opinions about the film. He wrote about his thoughts in a blog post on his website. In it, he goes on to say “The movie has more monotone, middle-aged white guys than the ’53 Yankees.” Dang, maybe the film isn’t as diverse or Latino as it’s made out to seem?


Comedian Cristela Alonzo had a pretty good response for anyone surprised that “Latin Lover” beat out Tom Hanks and Emma Watson’s new film.

Alonzo made another great point about Derbez.

Basically, Derbez, as we all know, is so popular in the Latino and more specifically, the Mexican community, there’s no way a film with him in it would flop with as many Latinos as there are in the U.S.


At its very worst, a film like “How To Be A Latin Lover” is re-enforcing stereotypes for laughs.

Many feel, and rightly so, that using these tired tropes of the hyper sexualized, machismo Latino, alpha-male, is way outdated in 2017.


At its very best, however, it can be seen as a film where Latinos are making fun of themselves, which we’re really good at.

And encouraging diversity in film, while showing that Latino actors have drawing power at a time when movie attendance is at a record low, could be seen as great goals to achieve from one goofy film.


Also let’s not forget, Eugenio Derbez can use a “hoverboard” better than you.
