If there’s one thing Latinos do better, it’s everything. More specifically, we are very, very, very good at coming up with and posing for dramatic photoshoots involving props and backdrops made of various sumptuous fabrics.

Don’t believe me? Just look:

It all begins even before you’re even born:

Just look at this gorgeous, giant couple terrorizing that happy mom-to-be in a forest. It’s so beautiful.

It continues into babyhood, with floating babies everywhere:

Someone please give this child a churro.

Nothing conveys our religious fervor quite like a looming Jesus:

This very natural, totally casual pose is a particular classic.

We can’t forget the accessories:

This picture, for instance, shows that the quinceañera isn’t only poised and very beautiful, she can also hunt ferrets better than anyone on the block.

The “shoe shot” is particularly important.

Why, you ask?

“As most family photoshoots go during the holidays, my daughter was in a highly anxious mode and later she worked out her frustrations in Photoshop. That’s the face of one of our dogs. She posted it on Facebook wishing everyone ‘Happy Holidays from the Rodriguez Family!’”

Christmas shoots provide a great opportunity to relive moments of pure joy.

Like this young man, who is wearing a shirt so nice, he got it twice.

And, finally, there’s the funeral photoshoot:

“I’m gonna s**t my pants.”

If you’re afraid of heights, this clip is definitely going to ramp up your anxiety for a bit. Guillermo, Jimmy Kimmel’s loveable, hilarious security guard, recently took a ride on Skyslide, a 1,000-foot-high clear glass slide near the top of the U.S. Bank Tower in Los Angeles. Still wondering how high that is? The U.S. Bank Tower is the tallest skyscraper west of Chicago. The Skyslide is basically a glass tube that begins on the 70th floor of the building and shoots you down to the 69th floor (heyooooo). The Skyslide folks hit up Jimmy Kimmel and asked if he wanted to give it a shot. He declined, sending his trusty sidekick instead — and let’s be honest, it’s better that he sent Guillermo, because Guillermo is never not funny.
