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.

If you’re a Frida Kahlo-obsessed fan looking to carry her around for good luck, this Brazilian artist shows you how to create one that will fit in your pocket.

Sculptor Fernanda Borges, who makes incredible tiny figures for the JLS Arts and Crafts store, posted a video of how she created a tiny Frida out of clay and made it looks so effortless!

The video begins from the inception of the project — putting the clay onto a skull mold — the the end, where Borges adds finishing touches, such as painting Frida’s face. The whole thing is quite detailed, and you can see how the artist molded the skull to the exact measurements of Frida’s face. Yes, some parts of the video look a little bit creepy, especially when the eyes are placed, but it’s so mesmerizing to witness clay transformed into a tiny Frida.

The JLS arts and crafts store is available online, which means you can buy the mold, the clay, and even the eyes. As you’ll see online, they sell muerte molds too, which would be perfect creations for Dia de los Muertos.

Frida isn’t Borges’s only cool creation. She’s made tiny Beatles, a tiny Jimmy Hendrix, and many more. Check it out here.
