Here’s The Quinceañera That The Whole Internet Was Invited To

Meet the Ibarra Garcia family from San Luis Potosi, Mexico. They are what we like to call “Internet famous.”


Here’s how it happened. Earlier this month, the family recorded a video invitation for the quinceañera of Rubí. Check it out:

After announcing which bands would play at the event, Rubí’s dad boasted that they would have a 10,000 peso chiva — as one of our readers pointed out, it’s an amateur horse race with a prize of 10,000 pesos to the winner. Oh, and he also invited ~everyone~ to the event.

Soon, the video went viral, and the Internet began making plans to attend the epic quinceañera. Someone created a Facebook event for the quince, and thousands of people began signing up.


The event page is currently at 1 million attendees. It’s been shared more than half a million times.

Once the video and event page went viral, you know the memes were inevitable.


Everyone jumped on the bandwagon.


Someone even created a party flyer…

Some people showed off their “tickets” to the event…

And others showed off their VIP passes.

“Distinguished” guests from Mexico…


… Colombia…


… and the U.S. began confirming their attendance.


Coupon codes were created…


And people speculated about exactly how big the quince would get.



Even this guy heard the news and tried to get an invite.


But, unfortunately for everyone, Rubí’s dad found out about the huge guest list. He promptly clarified that the quince was just for friends and family.


Which left lots of people disappointed…


… And distressed.

Someone should let the Ibarra Garcia clan know there’s going to be one very disillusioned guest.

A Rhode Island man is in hot water after reckless antics led to an accident.

Onasi Olio-Rojas is sure to become a cautionary tale for all the youths in the United States after his reckless car accident. The Pawtucket resident was driving along Route 6 in Providence, R.I., but the road trip turned into a tragedy. Olio-Rojas was using Facebook’s live stream on his phone while driving more than 100 miles per hour. He was weaving in and out of traffic without a seatbelt. At one point during the video, you can see the speedometer reach 116 miles per hour just before his crash. Olio-Rojas’ live stream ended when he lost control of the car and collided with a garbage truck. Olio-Rojas survived the accident and was arraigned by the police while still in his hospital bed.

“He has his camera in his right hand, videotaping himself as he’s driving, has no seatbelt on, he starts to hit speeds of 90 miles an hour which increases to 100 miles an hour, then you see several erratic lane changes where he goes from the high-speed lane to the low-speed lane, into the breakdown lane, in and out of traffic,” Capt. John Allen, of the Rhode Island State Police, told WPRI. “Mr. Rojas just has a blatant disregard for anyone else on the road.”

According to WPRI, Olio-Rojas has been charged with reckless driving and operating on a suspended license.

Authorities have said that they will be using the Facebook video as evidence against him in court. Fortunately, there were no other injuries reported connected to Olio-Rojas’ actions.
