Here’s a video that proves what we’ve known all along: tamales make everyone happy. During a recent trip to the local HEB grocery store, shopper John Castillo came across an HEB employee singing about tamales to the tune of the classic James Brown track “Get Up Offa That Thing.” Castillo did what most people would do: he recorded the experience and posted the video to his Facebook wall. The infectious energy of the unnamed employee — though her name tag says “Jewel” — caught on, and the video gained half a million views in just a few days. No word on whether or not “Jewel” has any songs up her sleeve about enchiladas or tacos, but that tamale track is definitely going on my playlist.
“Get up off of that thing, and get your hot tamales.”
This lady is working it…selling tamales at HEB!
