Canelo And Sylvester Stallone Are In A Commercial Together And It’s… Interesting

The highly-anticipated fight between Mexican boxing stars Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez and Julio César Chávez Jr. is getting closer and closer. The event, which takes place in Las Vegas on May 6th, pits Álvarez, a powerful, skilled boxer versus Chavez Jr., a bruiser whose father is one of the greatest fighters in Mexican sports history. Not only will the two pugilists make millions of dollars in the ring (although they supposedly agreed that the winner would win the full fight purse), they’re also making money from advertisements and sponsorships.

Here’s one somewhat bizarre ad featuring Canelo and “Rocky” star Sylvester Stallone:

Wait — did anyone else watch that whole video like this?

OK, getting Stallone, the man behind the iconic “Rocky” series, to star in an ad with Canelo makes total sense. The rest of what takes place in the video does not. Let’s break it down.

We start with Canelo, who is doing a little shadowboxing in the ring. Then we realize…

… the ring is infested with flies or bees, which appear to be ruining Canelo’s shadowboxing session.

Look at poor Canelo flail around in futility. Gyms are sweaty and dank, so it doesn’t seem out of place for there to be a fly (or two) buzzing around.

Oh, wait. They’re definitely bees! Good ol’ Sly apparently brought a beehive to the gym. And he’s using it as a speed bag.

Wyd, Sly? Maybe he wants Canelo to “float like a butterfly and sting like a bee”? Apparently no one told him he forgot the butterflies.

He also tells Canelo to “be bold,” even though Canelo’s shadowboxing form totally went to crap once the bees got in his face.

Canelo appears to be confused…

“¿Abejas? No mames, porque no me pone a perseguir gallinas o darle chingadazos a un medio de res?”

But he quickly realizes he’s getting a check for this commercial whether he understands it or not.

“Si güey, lo que digas!” ?

Sly points at the beehive one more time, in case the whole beehive = speed bag thing isn’t totally clear.

You can almost hear Stallone saying, “Get it?”

Then things switch over to a backyard BBQ, where Canelo is nursing a black eye.

Canelo reaches for an effective, proven remedy for reducing swelling: ice. But a mysterious hand stops Canelo before he can swish his hands around in that cool, wet ice chest.

It’s Stallone! So sly, that guy. He takes one look at Canelo’s eye and offers the sage advice that can only come from years of researching the fight game:

Stallone then offers a questionable alternative to ice: a thawed steak.

Again, he implores Canelo to “be bold.”

Canelo takes one look at Stallone’s fuckery and decides to do this:

Canelo is probably thinking, “Este güey esta loco.” Looks like Canelo wasn’t a fan of Stallone’s beehive speedbag.

“Be bolder,” replies Canelo.

OOOH, GOT EM!

Wait. “Be bolder”? Isn’t that exactly what you would do with a steak in that situation?

There is nothing revolutionary about throwing a steak onto a grill, Canelo.

Impressed by Canelo’s witty retort (and steak-throwing ability), Sly shakes Canelo’s hand.

He probably whispers to Canelo, “Can you believe we’re getting paid for this?”

And the two live happily ever after.

Chisme Says Javier Bardem Is Close To Landing The Role Of King Triton And People Have Some Thoughts

Vittorio Zunino Celotto / Staff

Disney just recently announced that Halle Bailey would be portraying Ariel in the live-action remake of ‘The Little Mermaid’ and finally we are starting to see better presentation of POC on the big screen.

The reaction to her casting was huge and, of course, came with it’s share of racist trolls.

But Disney is giving us another reason to celebrate ‘The Little Mermaid’ with word that Javier Bardem is in talks to start as Ariel’s father, King Triton.

Big news from Disney — Spanish actor Javier Bardem is reportedly in talks to join the cast of Disney’s upcoming live-action remake of the ‘Little Mermaid.’

And the best part? He’s up for the role of Ariel’s dad and the ruler of Atlantica, the mighty King Triton. If the reports are true, Javier will be joining a star-studded cast for the highly-anticipated flick.

Although Javier is in talks to play King Triton, other actors have publicly said they’d want to be considered in the Rob Marshall-directed movie. Brooklyn Nine-Nine actor Terry Crews took to his social media and posted a selfie of himself as the underwater ruler.  “Ariel’s Dad!!!!,” he wrote alongside the image.

Reactions on Twitter have been mixed to the news but a lot of people love the idea of Javier Bardem as King Triton.

And you can count us among that group. He’s a very talented actor, who, in fact, has won an academy award. So we have faith that he’ll be an amazing King Triton.

And this user had a very beautiful way of looking at the possible casting.

The sea is definitely a colorful place. Plus, also, mermaids aren’t real so Disney can cast whoever they want in which ever role they want.

While this person was excited for the possibility of something like Cinderella.

And we have to say that we agree. Brandy in Cinderella was everything and we would love to see Halle Bailey bring that same sort of energy to this role as Ariel – and we have faith that she will.

Though it looked like many on Twitter weren’t having any of it.

It looked like some were confused by the whole family tree while others just wanted the so called classic ‘Little Mermaid’ (read: white) that they grew up with and already know.

But more than one Twitter user easily shut down the haters.

That’s right people. Mermaids aren’t real. They could cast this however they want to cast it.

While many others were totally stanning for Terry Crews.

Count us in on this as well. Who doesn’t love funny man Terry Crews?! Apparently, he also really wants the role. He even tweeted out a photo of the film with the caption #ArielsDad.

Whoever plays King Triton will be joining a star-studded cast.

A few weeks ago, the studio announced that R&B singer (and Beyoncé’s protégé) Halle Bailey would take on the role of Ariel, while Melissa McCarthy would play Ariel’s nemesis Ursula. Other castings include 12-year-old actor Jacob Tremblay as Ariel’s best friend Flounder and Crazy Rich Asians star Awkwafina playing Scuttle, the pair’s other friend that gives them access to objects from the human world. Harry Styles is also reportedly in talks to play Ariel’s love interest Prince Eric.

How badly do you want to see Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, Lizzo, and Cardi B dancing, stripping, and racking up pyramids of cash from unsuspecting dudes? A lot? Perfect: keep scrolling.

The sickening trailer for the badass film ‘Hustlers’ is finally here.

The trailer dropped Tuesday night at midnight and fans of strippers, fierce women, and especially Cardi B, we’re all totally here for it.

The film follows the story of a group of women who have formed their own extended family. They’re all strippers in the NYC area but then they decide to go bigger and start drugging and robbing ultra-wealthy Wall Street types.

The movie is actually inspired by a true story from a now-viral magazine story.

The article, titled “The Hustlers at Scores” by Jessica Pressler, chronicles the real-life, modern Robin Hood story of a ring of strippers who ripped off wealthy clients.

The film is centered on two badass women, Destiny (Constance Wu) and Ramona (Jennifer Lopez).

Destiny is struggling to make ends meet and is helping to take care of her abuelita so she turns to stripping. This is how she meets Ramona who takes her under her wing and teaches Destiny everything she knows.

I mean Jennifer Lopez, on a pole, showing Constance Wu the moves. I. Am. Here. For. This!

Together with their extended family, these women decide to rob from the rich to help care for their loved ones.

Based off true events, J.Lo’s, Constance Wu’s, Cardi B’s, and Lizzo’s characters step up their hustle to include drugging men and robbing them of thousands of dollars.

In one scene, J Lo’s character explains it away as simply taking money from bad Wall Street guys who stole money from everyone during the financial crisis.

Things start to get real cray cray real quick.

The women end up drugging many of their clients to complete their heists…so you can see how things could quickly take a turn for the unexpected.

The plotline is amazing but many fans are here to support this gorgeous, talented, diverse cast of incredible women!

The casting director for this movie 100% deserves some serious stanning.

In addition to Jennifer Lopez and Constance Wu in badass lead roles but fans will also see Cardi B, Keke Palmer, Lizzo, and Usher on the big screen. Like what did we do deserve this masterpiece?!

Some in the Bardi-gang took to Twitter to say they’re kinda disappointed by the trailer.

They wanted more Cardi.

But whoever is running the Hustlers’ Twitter account was quick to calm their nerves.

According to the ‘Hustlers’ Twitter feed, “Cardi B is this movie.” Apparently, they didn’t wanna give it all away so soon. So Cardi B fans better get ready for her big screen acting debut.

Overall, ‘Hustlers’ looks like it just may be one of the fiercest movies of 2019.

See you at the movies!
