After a catastrophic 7.1 earthquake hit Mexico City and parts of southern Mexico, rescue brigades and volunteers sprang into action to help recover survivors and victims from the rubble. One of those rescuers captured the world’s attention and heart.

Her name is Frida. She’s a Navy rescue dog and a very good pupper.

Dressed in her protective goggles, vest and boots, the 7-year-old yellow Labrador has rescued and retrieved 52 people in her career, according to Reuters. She deserves lots of head pats and bits of bacon.

And now she’s been immortalized as a piñata!

Piñateria Ramirez in Reynosa, Tamaulipas, is known for making cool, creative piñatas that touch on major pop culture moments.

Their Frida piñata is an “homage to man’s best friend,” as they said in a Facebook post.


They also thank Frida and the rest of Mexico’s “paw patrol,” who have all been working hard in devastated areas since the earthquake hit.

From the goggles and little boots, to the cute little face and golden fur, Piñateria Ramirez totally nailed it.

We ❤️ Frida too!

While some commenters joked they could never possibly hit the adorable piñata of such a brave pup, other critics have come after Piñateria Ramirez hard. But the folks behind the Frida piñata had a comeback ready.

A critic private messaged the shop, scolding them for teaching children to beat a hero. The piñata makers responded:

“All children’s figures are their heroes and they want to have their favorite characters at their parties. It’s a matter of approach. Besides we made it as an homage. Not sure if I’ve explained myself.”

When the critic went on, saying they wouldn’t teach their children to “beat a real hero,” Piñateria Ramirez responded in the best way possible — a Robert Downey Jr. eye roll gif.

“[T]he ones that most understand the concept of the Frida piñata are children,” said Piñateria Ramirez in a follow-up post. They brought the receipts, too.

“I thought I just discovered the coolest drum beat in the world… all of a sudden I realize every Justin Bieber song has it…”

It’s always interesting when someone “discovers” something about your culture that you’ve known about damn well all your life. If it’s not a chopped cheese sandwich, mofongitos or even the entire concept of NYC bodegas, it’s our music. Well, this interview with Foo Fighters frontman and ex-Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl reveals that he happened to stumble upon reggaeton when working on the Foo Fighters song “Run.”

According to the interview above, he thought following his high-energy guitar riff with a quick drum beat created a cool sound that he’d never heard before. A music producer pointed out, “Oh, you’ve brought us a Reggaeton beat,” to which he replied, “What’s reggaeton?”

Then Grohl exclaimed, “Every fuckin’ Justin Beiber song has it… I was like, ‘Oh no.'” Although I shook my head to that, it’s not entirely wrong, as The Beibs has indeed co-opted the sound time and time again. Seems like a theme here…

Here’s the song below. The “reggaeton” beat starts around one minute mark:

I doubt anyone’s going to get a perreo in while jamming to this at the club. Not exactly “Despacito,” but I hear it. Good luck un-hearing it.
