Wondering what went down in El Chapo’s prison cell before he escaped? Wonder no more. Mexico’s National Security Commissioner, Monte Alejandro Rubido, released footage that shows El Chapo’s last moments before he slipped away from a tunnel beneath his cell. Here’s a breakdown:
First, El Chapo looks like he’s taking care of business in the restroom.
OR IS HE?
Then takes a quick peek over at his shower.
Something is definitely up.
Then El Chapo paces back and forth for a bit. Is he nervous or impatient?
BTW, people in NYC wish they had this much room in their studio apartments.
WAIT A MINUTE.
What’s that bright light to his left?
IS THAT AN IPAD?!?
Apparently, El Chapo kept life’s essentials in his prison cell: an iPad and toilet paper.
This is probably what his Netflix looked like:
Shawshank Redemption? El Chapo’s rating: ?????
Also, did he get to keep the shirt he was wearing when he was captured?

Who leaves behind a perfectly good iPad and a nice shirt? A guy worth hundreds of millions.
Anyway, back to the cell. After a few more paces, El Chapo heads back to the corner.
Is he speaking to someone in the tunnel below? He’s definitely not taking a shower fully clothed. Yo, were any guards even watching this feed?
Once it’s time to go, El Chapo slips on his shoes.
One foot at a time. He’s just like us!
Can we get a closer look at his kicks? Let’s ENHANCE:
What? GUCCI LOAFERS? You definitely can’t leave those behind.
