Oh, it’s true. Look at Pharrell’s outfit at the 2015 MTV VMAs. That’s no mistake.

Pharrell isn’t the only one inspired by Chompiras. Here’s Justin Timberlake with a formal take on Chompiras’ look:

Don’t see it? OK, let’s add that signature Chompiras hat.

Now you see it, don’t you?

Those horizontal stripes… the dark blazer… Chompiras IS EVERYWHERE. All you need to do is add that magical hat:

Actors, like Simon Pegg, have embraced it:

Although it’s clear he really needs a beard to pull that look together.

Much better!

Even Avan Jogia is rockin’ that Chompiras look!

OK. I’ve never heard of Avan Jogia, but he’s wearing a dark blazer and a shirt with horizontal stripes, so play along. Please?!

Even Manny Pacquiao has embraced his inner Chompiras.

He doesn’t need a hat because his hair is basically a helmet.

There you have it. Proof that Chompiras has inspired, and will continue to inspire, generation after generation. Now we just need Botijas to get a little love.

Endangered Baby Dolphin Dies Because Tourists Wanted To Take Selfies With It…Seriously

Hernán Coria / Facebook

In this month’s WTF news, two endangered dolphins were PULLED out of the ocean by tourists at Santa Teresita beach in Buenos Aires, Argentina. One of the dolphins tragically died after a mob of people passed the poor little thing around for selfies… SELFIES! Chalk this up to one of the unforeseen perils of technology and social media.

It all started when a baby Franciscana dolphin came very close to shore near a beach resort in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Usually people are quick to get the dolphin back to open water — you know, to save its life — but these people had a different plan.

Bystanders picked it up from the water, brought it to shore and set it on the ground.

Why would you even take the dolphin out of the water?

Then all hell broke loose as beachgoers crammed around the dolphin for selfies.

After they got their fill of photographs with the baby dolphin, it was abandoned on the beach and left to die.

“This terribly unfortunate event is an example of the casual cruelty people can inflict when they use animals for entertainment purposes, without thinking of the animal’s needs,” a spokeswoman for Australia’s World Animal Protection branch told ABC Australia. “At least one of these dolphins suffered a horrific, traumatic and utterly unnecessary death, for the sake of a few photographs.”

People quickly took to Twitter to announce their outrage and condemn the people responsible for the dolphin’s death, kind of like this:

People lost faith in humanity after reading the news.

While others just attribute the sad scene to the evolution of the human psyche.

Some people just want to join a different species after seeing the harm caused by those humans.

And others seem to be losing hope in society all together.
