Bad Bunny’s new music video for his song “Chambea” features Ric Flair, the loud mouth nature boy from pro-wrestling fame — and that’s the tamest part of the video. Bunny sports a loud tropical yellow suit with red and green accents, which looks a lot like your abuela’s curtains from the 80’s and 90’s, which also match the VHS tuning filter that comes in and out throughout.
Flair appears next to Bunny on a rooftop exclaiming his famous hyperbole and shouting “Woo!”

The 68 year-old recently revealed on a wrestling podcast that he was on a drinking bender when his intestines burst open back in August. He was hospitalized and in a coma for 10 days. He still somehow managed to do his trade mark “Woo!” here with Bad Bunny even though it sounds like he probably should be resting his lungs. Can’t stay young forever, Natureboy.
The video clocking in at just under four minutes, manages to pack a bunch of weirdness in.
Just watching these two on a rooftop jumping around feels weird. Flair is probably thinking to himself, “Who is this dude? How did I get up here? Have I taken my fiber?”
You can’t deny there was clearly a lot of bling on this set.
Bunny captioned this on his Instagram with “BE THE ROLEX WEARIN’, DIAMOND RING WEARIN’, KISS STEALIN’, WHEELIN’ DEALIN’, LIMOUSINE RIDIN’, JET FLYIN’ SON OF A GUN!”
Less dope however is how the music video shows women.

The video takes us through what appears to be a house party between Bunny and his crew and a few scantily clad women, who aren’t doing much but twerking and sucking lollipops. The dancing and bikinis are par for the course now for music videos like these, but you start to wonder is that all that Rap, Reggaeton and Latin Trap videos have to offer? Outside of being problematic, it’s kind of lazy at this point.
Oh, there’s also a monkey humping a sofa and chewing on money, I shit you not.
The song bumps, even if the video is questionable, except for this one dope moment between Bunny and his die hard fans.
NO VEAN ESTE VIDEO 🚫 Porque se van a quedar con ganas de mas!!! ⚠️ Si mañana muero, digan lo que digan yo seré leyenda 🌫🔥 ESTO ES LO PRÓXIMO! “CHAMBEA” 🔜🔜 NO HA SALIDO Y YA ES UN HIMNO! 🤷🏻♂️ Pendiente que ya mismo les anuncio la fecha de salida 🏁 Vamos a hacer historia! Dimeloooo!! @alexkillermusic @djluian @mambokingz @noahassad @fernandolugoo @spifftv 🤐🤐 #LaNuevaReligión
His fans love him, there’s no two ways about it. But maybe let’s do better when it comes to how we treat and show women in Latin Trap videos? It doesn’t seem like anyone knows how to these days.
