You’re Gonna Hate Yourself For Laughing At This Juan Gabriel Video Meme

Remember when the late, great Juan Gabriel took a tumble onstage during a concert?

In 2005, the legendary Mexican singer was performing at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, when he fell from the stage. According to People en Español, Gabriel lost his footing when he got tangled up in a cable on the stage. He was later hospitalized and treated for several fractures on one of his wrists. El Divo de Juárez recovered well and continued to slay for years.

Well, someone created this “Shooting Stars” video meme of JuanGa’s fall, and you’ll probably hate yourself for laughing.

That high-wire section: ?

The JuanGa video meme was inspired by this clip of a large man reluctantly bungee jumping off a bridge:

Naturally, people began making their own versions using other viral clips:

Oh, and before you pull out your phone to Shazam the song used in this meme, here it is:

It’s “Shooting Stars” by Bag Raiders.

That’s why the meme is called “Shooting Stars.”

Seth Meyers Gives Undocumented Immigrants And President Trump’s Wall “A Closer Look” In Hilarious Segment

Late Night With Seth Meyers / NBC

Earlier this week, late night TV host Seth Meyers took on several issues related to President Trump’s border wall and immigration in a hilarious “A Closer Look” segment. Meyers set up the piece by discussing current events, such as the two Texas hunters who claimed they were shot by undocumented immigrants. Investigators determined the hunters’ claim turned out to be a lie: the hunters actually shot one another accidentally.

Meyers pointed out that the hunters learned an important lesson that day: deer can laugh.

He then acknowledged that photoshopping the smiles onto deer took up the better part of his staff’s day.

Next, Meyers brought up some well-documented details about the realities of undocumented immigrants in the U.S.

According to several studies, immigrants are less likely to commit serious crimes, and more Mexicans are leaving the U.S. than entering it. Meyers pointed out that from 2009 to 2014, the U.S. experienced a net loss of 140,000 Mexican immigrants, saying, “America has turned into a bad movie and people are walking out.”

Meyers then closed out his segment by talking about Donald Trump’s proposed wall and the recent immigration reforms.

Meyers joked about all the difficulties President Trump has had in establishing whether or not the wall will actually be a wall, and who exactly is going to pay for it. He pointed out that Stephen Miller, a senior adviser to President Trump, suggested the wall will “pay for itself many many many times over.” Meyer’s talked about how he remembers all the times Trump would ask the audience “who’s gonna pay for the wall?”



And their response, “the wall will pay for itself many many many times over.” Definitely not as catchy as Trump’s original call to action.
