Here is How the Internet Totally Reunited a Mexican Woman with Her Stolen Pickup Truck

The Internet is a cruel place where everything, like everything, is fair game for jokes and mockery. Zaira Salazar Medina learned this the hard way when she asked the Internet to help her find her stolen truck with a badly drawn picture. But the Internet’s lack of chill actually ended up helping her…

It all started when Zaira Salazar Medina made this plea via social media to track down her stolen pickup.

Translation: “Yesterday, at the Hector Espino market, someone stole a 1991 Nissan pick up with the plate number VB52780. The car is grey with a black roof. If you see it, please call me 6622214393. I don’t have photos but I have this drawing.”

Silly her for thinking that the Internet would sympathize and help her in a time of need.

It didn’t take long for the Internet to act as only the Internet can… with jokes.

Soon everyone with a social media account and access to photo editing started to “spot” the truck everywhere.

Seriously… everywhere.

The truck had some great times, like when it delivered a bed full of pizza.

Don’t lie. You’d totally use that emoji.

Then, because the image became so viral, someone actually recognized it and reported it.

Everyone following the story was like:

Who would have ever guessed a crude drawing posted to Facebook would actually lead to the truck being recovered and returned?

And the world discovered that the truck DID look like the drawing.

Look Alike

Seems like Salazar has a hidden talent, no?

But that’s not the end of the story.

If she could get 1 million likes on the video above, the car dealership would give her a new truck.

She reached her goal way before the Dec. 23 deadline.

El momento justo en el que la publicación logró superar el millón de “likes”
¡¡¡Felicidades Zaira!!!

And Chevrolet Monclova kept their word and gave her a brand new truck.

As for her old truck, rumor has it that it’s following it’s dream to be a race car.

A Mexicana Just Broke A World Record By Making The Fastest Ascent Of The Earth’s Three Highest Mountains

A Mexicana Just Broke A World Record By Making The Fastest Ascent Of The Earth’s Three Highest Mountains

Mexican climber Viridiana Álvarez Chávez, might just one of the few people in the world to know what it feels like to actually be on top of the world.

Recently, the climber managed to scale three of the world’s highest peaks to break the Guinness World Records title. And she did it all in under just two years.

Incredibly, Viridiana climbed to the top of the three highest mountains in a year and 364 days.

According to the Guinness World Records, Viridiana’s quest to break the record started on May 16, 2017, with Everest (8,848 meters; 29,029 feet high), followed by K2 (8,611 meters; 28,251 feet) on July 21, 2018, and ended at Kangchenjunga (8,856 meters; 28,169 feet) on May 15, 2019.

Viridiana is the first Latin American to climb K2, the world’s second-highest mountain. To celebrate her amazing accomplishments, Viridiana was honored with a remote ceremony in which Raquel Assis, the Senior Manager of Guinness World Records Latin America Records Management Team, also attended.

Speaking about her accomplishments, Assis congratulated Virdiana saying “We continue to inspire the world through our record holders. Records motivate people to recognize their potential and look at the world differently.”

Before Viridiana, the Guinness World Records title was held by South Korean climber Go Mi-Sun who climbed the three mountains in two years and two days.

Viridiana says her next mission is to climb the 14 highest mountains in the world which would make her the first North American to do so.

Besides being a climber, Viridiana is a public speaker who encourages young people to break standards. Her talks emphasize the importance of accomplishing goals through emotional intelligence, positivity, discipline, and consistency.

“My career as a mountaineer started with an unusual and inspirational purpose: a simple personal challenge to exercise, but I ended up giving up my office job; risking comfort to experience the magic of the mountains, Viridiana told Guinness Book of World Records. “It was proof that dreams do not have to be lifelong dreams and that anyone who sets them can achieve even what are considered ‘unattainable goals,’ such as breaking a world record.”

In 2001, Christina Aguilera was a pop princess on the rise.

She further solidified herself in the world of music that year when she joined forces with the powerful voices of Mýa, Pink, and rappers Lil’ Kim and Missy Elliot for a recorded version of “Lady Marmalade.” The track, which had been created for the Moulin Rouge soundtrack, became an instant smash and classic. At the time of its release, the song was a number-one hit on the Billboard Hot 100 for 5 weeks.

Let us not forget that the song also taught an entire generation the infamous French words “Voulez-vous coucher avec moi (ce soir)?”

Now nearly twenty years after its release, Aguilera is reminding us of her musical chops and the beloved song.

In a video posted to her Instagram page, the Burlesque actress mimed along to a recent version of the song performed by TikTok sensation Lili Hayes. Hayes, who is 72, blew up on Instagram and TikTok a few years ago for her musical posts and attitude. She can often be seen on her pages singing or sporting hats and has gained fame for her sense of humor. She’s been featured in blog posts and major outlets like Vogue.

Her bio reads ‘Over everything. Always a little p****d.’ 

Christina’s parody of Hayes’s hilarious TikTok sent her 6.8 million followers into an internet craze.

Fans labeled the singer a ‘goddess’ for singing the song while dancing in her swimming pool with a glass of wine and an oversized black straw hat. In the video, Aguilera can be seen showing off her playful side while whipping her hair around.

“I feel like I’ve never sounded so goooooood! Yas honey @lili_hayes ! 😂🔥 #RealLadyMarmalade #LadyMarmaladeRemix #tiktok,” she wrote in a caption of the hilarious clip.
