When Sh*t Blows Up in Your Face

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto got quite an international scolding from funnyman John Oliver of HBO’s Last Week Tonight, who sarcastically mocked his administration for an ill-planned video ad campaign that urged its citizens to, get this…stop complaining.

“When the government decides to tell its citizens to stop complaining, they should know that shit is eventually going to blow up in your face,” the comedian says.

The video was released on YouTube and showed two carpenters talking about the current state of Mexico, finally one man ends the conversation with “ya chole con tus quejas.”

It sparked so much controversy, that the Mexican government took it down in a matter of hours. But, as we all know, you can’t delete something from the internet.
