Yes, his name is actually Taco Tuesday Guy. He, along with Maraca Man, were figurines created prior to the release of “The LEGO Movie.” Aside from the taco tray and maracas, they’re virtually identical.

Which got us wondering… What if there were Lego figurines of actual Latinos? You know, some of the most iconic Latinos out there, such as…

The Internet’s favorite college gymnast, Sophina DeJesus, was on “The Ellen Degeneres Show” where she talked routine inspo, broken dreams and gave another great performance.

The show started with Ellen and DeJesus reminiscing over the first time DeJesus made an appearance on the show as a little girl.

Even then, DeJesus had some sick moves.

The college senior described what was going on in her mind when she put together her routine.
