“Rich Mexican Girl” Tells the Truth about the Infamous, Viral Cocaine Challenge

Remember that video? You know, the one with “rich Mexican girls” snorting cocaine and daring their friends to do the “little pass challenge”? It was all a joke. Yup. One big, fat, accidental, Internet joke.

Vice recently spoke to Ber, the first girl who’s video went viral, and got the 411. “It was a bad joke in a WhatsApp chat that got taken completely out of context,” she told Vice. “I know I’m the one to blame and I never should have recorded that video.”

This video of her snorting cocaine first went viral amongst her friends, then social media-wide and finally became a trending news story after “‘The Cocaine Challenge’: The Latest Trend Among Rich Mexican Girls” was published by SDP Noticias. A milieu of other news agencies published stories based on the SDP article without even interviewing the people who appeared in the videos, according to Ber.

Ber is now reaping the consequences of partaking in drug-fueled extracurricular activities and recording them. Her “reputation is going down the drain thanks to a moment of stupidity; all because of a joke between friends that got blown out of proportion.”

Get all the details from Ber here.

These High School Soccer Players Are Going Viral After Choreographing A Quince Dance And It’s Actually Pretty Good

We all know that having a perfect quinceañera takes a hell of a lot of effort. And also, that Murphy’s Law is a thing, hindsight is 20/20 vision, so there’s probably many things that you think you would probably do differently if you were doing your quince a second time around. Chances are, the first thing you would do would be get this soccer team on the case for designing your quinceañera routine, since it’s pretty much the definition of fire.

First, let’s start with the soccer team in question.

How long does it take a bored soccer team to create a quince routine? And no, this isn’t the start of a joke, or a riddle. This particular boy’s soccer team took only two minutes to choreograph a full routine! We’re pretty sure there’s gotta be some real proper teamwork coming from these guys, to put together a dance so quickly. Our other theory is that at least one person on the team knows how to dance. But, we digress.

A video of the routine surfaced on Twitter earlier this week, and it’s already been viewed more than 500,000 times.

It shows the boy’s soccer team dancing to “El vals de las mariposas,” taking us through the quinceañero dancing with everyone on the court. And while they’ve definitely got skill, the real draw was the boys’ enthusiasm for the dance. At the end of the day, it’s not really a proper celebration without happy partygoers, right?

The reactions on Twitter said it all: the team definitely impressed.

Some knew that the team was onto something – and wanted to know why they just saw something that was better than most quinces they had attended.

Some on the team were upset they missed the now viral sensation.

One team member was left out of the whole affair, since he had decided to go home before the real fun started. Clearly he missed out! Here’s hoping the team can adjust the routine and include their last team member. Or even better – that all of them get to use their routine at an actual quince.

One word: flashback!

Other Twitter users had flashbacks to the days when their mom was yelling at her and her friends. Apparently the quince practice sessions were a bit too much for that family!

Others pointed out the strong message of confidence and security being shared in this video.

One sharp Tweet pointed out that this is exactly the sort of thing that we should be seeing from boys who are secure in themselves. We love a little commentary on gender.

Is there any way we can hire this soccer team to make a quince routine for us?

If you’re really starved for choice, then you could always review their version of a quinceañera dance floor after a few drinks! Which, okay, still doesn’t solve the problem of putting together a fire quinceañera routine. At this stage, we haven’t seen any offers from the guys to turn their dancing abilities into a fully-fledged business, but who knows! It may be just a matter of time. 

That being said, there are a bunch of different ways you can mix it up at a quinceañera!

This father-daughter duo took the chance to show their waltzing skills to a haunting, mystical Enya tune. It definitely gave the impression of princess dancing in a fairytale! It’s definitely one way to keep quinceañera guests entranced.

Seriously, YouTube is full of Quince inspiration!

This crew knew one hundred percent what they were doing when they came up with this quince choreography. We can easily envisage the birthday girl getting in on a routine like this one – although the quinceañero in this case decided to sit it out and watch the show in this video.

Umm…can I go back in time and celebrate a quince like this, please?

It doesn’t get much more extra than this quinceañera routine! We’re guessing that everyone involved must have been either part of a hip hop dance crew, a cheerleading team, or spent hours putting together the dance!

So what was your quinceañera routine like – and how long did it take for you to learn it? Tell us about it on our Facebook page!

She Went To The Hospital For A Panic Attack With Full Zombie Makeup, Doctors Thought She Needed Emergency Surgery

She Went To The Hospital For A Panic Attack With Full Zombie Makeup, Doctors Thought She Needed Emergency Surgery

It’s October, which just so happens to be my favorite month of the year. I mean, Halloween – hello! And with Halloween comes costumes and makeup.

And some people take Halloween makeup to the extreme. Case in point: this woman’s zombie makeup look was so realistic that when she arrived to a hospital for non-zombie health issues, doctors assumed it was real.

This zombie makeup look was so real it convinced actual medical staff she was in need of urgent surgery.

The woman, who lives in Detroit, apparently caused quite a bit of drama in an emergency room when she arrived to the hospital to be treated for a panic attack. However, when she arrived to the hospital she was still done up in her ultra-realistic zombie makeup. Her mouth and chin looked like it was in need of some serious surgery. So doctors did what they’re sworn to do – they prepped Jai Fears (the zombie makeup wearing woman) for immediate surgery and wheeled her off to the trauma ward.

The makeup, she claims, was mistaken for an actual medical emergency and she began being prepped to enter trauma.

“[They said] ‘Let’s get her back to trauma now,’ and ‘She’s probably going into shock, she’s not making any sense,’” Jai Fears, a back-up dancer who had undergone three hours of make-up work to create her grisly look, told Fox 2 Detroit.

Fears said she landed in Beaumont Royal Oak Hospital after suffering a panic attack while getting ready to do a photoshoot for Glam Gore. “It just shot up to my brain and it just caused like a really bad reaction,” she told Fox 2 Detroit.

But when she arrived, she didn’t expect to have to explain her appearance to hospital staffers.

When she arrived to the hospital, according to Fears, she figured the hospital would have to know that it was just makeup. In fact, she said in an interview “They have to know! So no, I did not say anything because I just assumed they could see that it was fake.” 

Plus, when you’re suffering a panic attack, communication isn’t usually one of your strongest skills. It can be difficult to communicate even the most basic of subjects or even remember where you are or how you got there.

The hospital said that it could not comment on Fears’ case specifically, but did release a statement. 

“The emergency room is not a place for fun and games,” a spokesperson told the news outlet. “They see many patients with severe medical issues where lives are at stake. Doctors need to be able to focus on those patients with true emergencies.”

Fears was sent home the same day. In a follow-up post on Facebook, Fears emphasized that while the reaction was humorous, anxiety is not.

“Let me please say anxiety is no joke or laughing matter,” she wrote on Tuesday. “It was a serious situation that happened at a strange time.”

According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, it is estimated that nearly 40 million people in the U.S. experience an anxiety disorder in any given year. Additionally, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates 1 in 13 people globally suffers from anxiety.

Though not everyone is buying her story.

Though few people questioned the very real condition of panic attacks, many found it hard to believe that she was able to take so many photos while supposedly suffering from one. Most of the photos she shared were obviously taken while in the hospital so many are accusing her, and the makeup company, of nothing more than a publicity stunt.

Moral of the story: if you end up in the hospital with gory makeup, let them know it’s just makeup!
