“No me muevo, no me muevo.”

The Mexican Standoff, an L.A.-based band that sings folk Mexican music, has a new song that focuses on a situation that made all elote lovers pay attention: the flipping of an elotero’s cart by a fellow Latino. You might remember that last week, Benjamin Ramirez recorded a confrontation that took place on a public sidewalk in Los Angeles. The video starts with Ramirez arguing with a man over his elote cart, which the man claimed was taking up space on the sidewalk. After some yelling, the man, later identified as musician Carlos A. Hakas, flipped Ramirez’s elote cart to the ground but not before being hit with chile powder.

The band uses the song to tell the story of the incident, which is the function of a corrido. They even used one of Hakas’ now famous lines: “Yo no soy racista, te dijo que soy Argentino.”

Fernández, who is a singer for the band, says via Facebook messages that the song was created on the spur of the moment. One band member started to sing “elotero” and the rest was a whirlwind of recording and making the music video.

“It is important to give voice to the voiceless, power to the powerless,” Fernández says. “The Mexican Standoff does not tolerate incidents like this.”
