The long-awaited fight between boxer Floyd “Money” Mayweather and MMA star Conor McGregor finally took place this past weekend and things went mostly as expected. After landing a few punches early in the fight, McGregor gassed out and Mayweather took advantage, landing clean shots on the Irishman, culminating in a 10th round TKO for the 40-year-old Mayweather.
After the fight, there were plenty of talking points. Did the ref stop the fight too early? Should McGregor get credit for not getting KO’ed early in the fight? Was Mayweather’s outfit inspired by El Chacal from “Sabado Gigante”?

But there’s something else you may have missed: the discussion about the Corona Girls.

Several young ladies in Corona beer garb were all over the ring on Saturday.

As “brand ambassadors” for the Mexican beer company, it’s pretty much their job to appear on camera whenever they get a chance.

And people noticed.

If there was an opportunity to squeeze into the TV frame, they took it.

Lots of people were impressed:

But this pair’s preternatural ability to maintain the same pose, while smiling, started creeping people out.

It wasn’t just the smiles, though:
I'm horribly uncomfortable with the amount of eye contact the Corona girls are giving the camera #MayweathervMcgregor

It even earned them comparisons to these iconic twins:

Yep, the twins from “The Shining.”
Even after the main event, one of the Corona Girls managed to squeeze into the frame:

Who knows where they’ll pop up next.
