Residente Was On ‘The Daily Show’ And It Was Incredible

Residente believes strongly in Puerto Rico.

Rene Perez Joglar, a.k.a. Residente of Calle 13, sat down with Trevor Noah to discuss the political climate in Puerto Rico and he made his stances very clear. For one, he wants for Puerto Rico to finally have a say on who they elect to be their president rather than just sitting on the sidelines. Puerto Rico, a territory of the U.S., is trying to retain it’s own sovereignty, but not being able to choose a leader has really impacted the island nation, according to Perez Joglar.

“I’m on of the 5 percent of people from Puerto Rico that believe in the independence of Puerto Rico,” Residente told Noah. “And, of course, it’s because I would like it to be like the U.S. with one flag, one national anthem, and with a president. We don’t have a president, well we have Trump as the president, but we don’t get to vote for him.”

Residente also talked candidly about how he was banned from performing in Puerto Rico and recently return to put on a show. Residente confirmed that he at one point called a leader of Puerto Rico a “son-of-a-b•tch,” which led to his music being censored and him being banned from entering his home country. He even talked about how his abuela was never able to watch him perform. Luckily for him, the person he called out lost his reelection and Residente was welcomed back to the island.

Chances are you’ve seen the video for Bruno Mars’ “That’s What I Like.”

On first glance, the video looks pretty simple. Just Bruno Mars dancing in front of a background. But take another look.

Maybe you didn’t notice the animation at first.

But it really ramps up during the video. Like this:

So while it was a simple video for Bruno Mars, the animator clearly worked his ass off.

No pun intended.

Well one YouTube channel noticed the massive workload the animator undertook and decided to do something about it. Here’s their parody video:

The Key of Awesome did an awesome job summing up the torment and struggles the animator must have dealt with while making this video.

At first, “Bruno” makes fun of the animator’s artistic talents.

But then the animator decides he’s had enough.

Throughout the video, Julio the animator uses his drawings to exact revenge on Bruno.

Animators really know how to use their imagination to put the hurt on a person.

Jokes aside, Kevin Rivera, a.k.a. Young Bruno, really nailed the Bruno Mars impression.

Rivera is no stranger to performing. Videos of Rivera’s dancing on subway trains and in competitions are all over the internet. Rivera’s Instagram account shows off his versatility and talent as a dancer.

Rivera barely even scratched the surface of his talents in the parody of “That’s What I Like.”

If you’re curious about the all the work that went into making the parody video, including the animation, or the person playing Mars, check out this behind the scenes video.

You really gotta watch both videos to see the amount of talent and effort that went into making this great parody video.
