Prince Royce’s Latest Video Left Me Asking Lots And Lots Of Questions

Prince Royce just released a new video for “Ganas Locas,” the fifth single from his latest album, “Five.” It’s what you’d expect from a Prince Royce track — smooth urban bachata with slinky guitars, a thumping beat, and a sweet melody. It works whether it’s being blasted at a club or being listened to with a pair of headphones. If you’re a Prince Royce fan, chances are you’ve already heard the song hundreds of times, so the music video will do little to change your opinion about it. Here’s a quick recap of what you’ll see in the video:

Royce and a small crew of motorcyclists roll up to a gas station. Let’s call them Los Hijitos de Anarchy.

Just look at that fearsome foursome. 

A trio of women in a bright yellow convertible also rolls up to the gas station.

One of the women is like, “Psssst… is that Prince Royce?”

“I recognize that man-bun anywhere.”

Prince Royce is like, “ROY-EEEEEEEEEESE.” (OK, not really).

There’s definitely some tension between Royce and the woman in the Selena cosplay outfit. Their eyes lock…

… and just when you think they’re going to talk, the woman turns around to ask her friends what they want from the mini mart.

“Takis? Sour gummy worms? OK, cool.”

Royce and his crew can only watch, gobsmacked by the savagery they’ve just witnessed.

Once the woman is inside the store, she is mesmerized by a display full of energy drinks. So much for those Takis and gummy worms.

But wait! Prince Royce enters the store and the two exchange sultry glances. Yes!

Then, Royce… walks right by her? WTH. Say something!

CREDIT: PrinceRoyceVEVO / YouTube

Looks like he blew his chance. Tsk, tsk.

Sidenote: If you look closely as the woman walks out…

…you’ll see during there’s a “No Loitering” sign on the building.

That shit is in Spanish, too, so they covered their bases.

Clearly, Prince Royce is violating the rules, especially in this scene, where he’s just singing with no one else around. That’s definitely LOITERING.

CREDIT: PrinceRoyceVEVO / YouTube

What a rebel.

K, another thing.  There’s also a random food truck just chillin’.

CREDIT: PrinceRoyceVEVO / YouTube

No, it’s not a taco truck. It’s an arepa truck…

CREDIT: PrinceRoyceVEVO / YouTube

And there’s actually a lone mystery customer purchasing some tasty arepas.

CREDIT: PrinceRoyceVEVO / YouTube

I hope she’s ordering an arepa with carne mechada. I’ve heard those are great.

K, so back to the video. The woman gets back to the car, shoots Royce another glance…

CREDIT: PrinceRoyceVEVO / YouTube

And then they just take off.

Then, several seconds later, the video cuts to:

Wait, what? Royce and the woman are grinding it out at the club! We followed them through that whole emotional rollercoaster at the gas station and now they’re just hugged up like they’ve known each other forever (or a few hours, at least). What happened between the gas station and the club? Who made the first move? How did you go from playing hard to get to just getting got?

There’s a whole chunk of this timeline missing and I want to know what happened.

Did Royce and Los Hijitos de Anarchy follow the women to their destination after seeing them at the gas station? That’s pretty creepy but apparently not that creepy because here we are with these two vertically spooning on the dance floor.

Maybe they already knew each other and Royce’s crew was just following them to the gas station before they hit the club. Maybe the Selena cosplay woman’s friend whispered something like, “You should totally do some role playing type of thing where you act like a stranger who doesn’t know Royce.” But how would Royce know to play along? Maybe I’m underestimating his improv skills.

Maybe I’m overthinking a Prince Royce video.

Oh, also, Faruko makes an appearance.

There you have it. A complete breakdown of Prince Royce’s new vid.

UPS Delivery Man Is Fired After Video Surfaces of His Anti-Latino Racist Rant

UPS Delivery Man Is Fired After Video Surfaces of His Anti-Latino Racist Rant

An unnamed UPS delivery driver has been fired after being caught using racist language when delivering a package to a Latino household. The incident occurred on December 17th.

The video, which was caught on a doorbell camera’s security footage, shows a white UPS driver appearing to be angry when delivering a package.

“Now you don’t get f—–g nothing…You can’t read and write and speak the f—–g English language,” he says while writing a “failed to deliver” notice and pasting it on the house’s front door.

The Aviles family says that the footage shows that the UPS worker never even attempted to deliver the package in the first place. He never rang the doorbell or knocked on the door. Based on that, the family has come to the conclusion that the driver intentionally withheld the package from the family out of prejudice and spite

They believe that the only way the driver could’ve known that the family was Latino was by making assumptions based off the name on the package.

“The only information this driver had that could serve as a trigger for this deep-seated hate was the name on the package,” said Forward Latino President Darryl Morin at a press conference addressing the incident.

“So what we have here is a very intentional act to ruin Christmas for somebody, for someone to spew this hateful rhetoric, and quite honestly to deceive their employer,” Morin continued.

Per UPS, the employee has now been fired. “There is no place in any community for racism, bigotry or hate. This is very serious and we promptly took action, terminating the driver’s employment. UPS is wholeheartedly committed to diversity, equity and inclusion,” UPS said in a statement. They also said they contacted the family to apologize.

But the Aviles family is still rattled that such bigoted people are out and about, letting their petty prejudices effect other people’s lives.

“The package was a Christmas gift that we eventually received after Christmas Day, but what if it happened to have time-sensitive content like an epipen or a book I needed to take a final,” said Shirley Aviles, the mother of the man who lives at the address, told NBC News. “I don’t get it. It’s just sad.”

Aviles seemed disturbed about what this incident says about human nature. “This is about the things people do when they think no one is watching them. That’s important because that’s when you see people’s true colors and that’s what’s scary,”

Here Are Some Christmas Traditions From Around Latin America

Here Are Some Christmas Traditions From Around Latin America

Christmas is a special time of year. Families have their traditions to mark the festive year and some of those traditions are rooted in culture. Here are some of the ways various countries in Latin America celebrate Christmas.

El Pase Del Niño Viajero – Ecuador

El Pase del Niño Viajero is a pageant that happens in Ecuador that lasts weeks. The parade is meant to represent the journey of Mary and Joseph. The parade highlights the religious importance of Christmas in Ecuador and is most common in the Andean region of the country.

The biggest and most important parade is in Cuenca, a deeply religious city. Citizens near the city have all day to see the parade as it starts in the early morning and runs through the late afternoon. This gives people a lot of time to make it to the city to witness the parade.

La Gritería – Nicaragua

La Gritería comes after La Purisma. La Purisma is celebrated at the end of November and is meant to celebrate the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary. La Gritería is celebrated in early December and involves literal yelling. Someone would shout “Que causa tanta alegria?” (“What causes so much happiness?”) People respond “La Concepción de María.” (“Mary’s Conception.”)

Las Posadas – Mexico

Mexican posadas are the most recognizable. Posadas take place in Mexico from Dec. 16-24, though this year they are most likely to be virtual. The posada begins with a procession in the neighborhood filled with people singing and sometimes led by two people dressed as Mary and Joseph.

Another part is the posada party. Before guests can enter, there is a song exchange with the people outside playing Joseph looking for shelter. The hosts sing the side of the innkeeper saying there is no room. Eventually, the guests are welcomed into the home to celebrate Christmas.

Aguinaldos – Colombia

Aguinaldos are a series of games played by people in Colombia leading up to Christmas. There are certain games that are common among people in Colombia. One is pajita en boca, which requires holding a straw in your mouth the entire time of a social event. Another is dar y no recibir, which is about getting people to take something you are giving to score a point.

El Quema Del Diablo – Guatemala

El quema del diablo is celebrated in early December and is a way of letting go of the previous year. People burn piñatas and effigies of the devil to let go of all negative feelings and moments from the previous year. If there was every to try a new tradition, this would be the year. Burn an effigy and banish 2020 to the past, where it belongs.
