Chris Evans Is The Face Of A Mexican Leche Company And I Am Living For These Memes

In the United States, commercial acting isn’t given the respect it is in the rest of the world. While celebrity cameos are becoming more widely used in advertising, most popular actors and actresses wouldn’t be caught dead selling coffee, bottled water or bubble gum on American television. However, big-name stars regularly appear in commercials in other countries where they can hide from the shame of being wealth hoarders.

In Japan, Tommy Lee Jones sells coffee and Britney Spears advertises candy. In Germany, Snoop Dog promotes cell phone service. The latest example of a famous star acting in a foreign commercial is Chris Evans who is tapping into the Mexican milk market. 

Chris Evans really wants you to drink Lala milk.

In the advertisement for the Lala Leche campaign, Evans sits down on a park bench next to a Mexican woman. The woman begins to go on a spiel about the milk entirely in Spanish, a language that Evans does not speak. Nevertheless, the woman convinces Evans to drink Lala 100 which is 100 percent lactose-free milk. Is Captain America lactose intolerant? Unclear. What is clear is that Evans likes stacking them pesos as much as he likes stacking them dollars. 

Fans, of course, went insane with Lala Leche memes.

Yes, all that vitamin D in milk turns growing boys into grown men. 

Not a fan of milk but can’t say I disagree with this one.

“When they offer you milk vs. when you see that Chris Evans drinks it,” one user wrote. 

Seriously, some of these memes are giving me life.

Perhaps my favorite meme is Chris Evans emerging from a giant bottle of Lala Leche, reborn as Captain America. Do they make this Lala Leche with vibranium from Wakanda or is that just the special Afro-Latinx blend? 

While others are feeding into my ultimate fantasies…

Fans of Captain America, of whom there are many, are thirsting over all the questionable and outright obscene content out there thanks to this odd pairing.

Evans is even traveling around Mexico at the moment to fan’s delight.

The A-list movie star has been spotted in Riviera Nayarit in Mexico all week filming a new television series set to debut on Apple’s new streaming service. The show, Defending Jacob is based on William Landay’s 2012 New York Times best-selling novel and will star Evans as Andy Barber, an assistant district attorney who is assigned the case of a 14-year-old boy and discovers his own son is a suspect. The thriller will run for eight episodes. 

According to the Vallarta Daily, the series will feature much of the unique landscape and many locals were hired as extras.

“Over the course of more than a week the production took full advantage of the destination’s beautiful natural scenery and luxurious hotel infrastructure for its shoots, which also included extras from the local community.” 

It is unclear why the series is filming in Mexico when it geographically takes place in Massachusettes and much of the filming has taken place there since April. Maybe it’s a spoiler? According to the IMDB page, as far as I can tell, there will be no Latinxs in the cast. Cool.

Of course, everybody was freaking out when Evans landed in Nayarit.

Fans were stunned that Evans graced us mere plebians with his presence. People began tweeting at the MCU leader, and they did not look thirsty at all. 

“Hey I am from here from Riviera nayarit I want to meet you I am your biggest good fan of many cevans, as I can do, really, it is one of my biggest dreams and above all goals, please help me,” one user wrote. 

At least one person on Twitter was basically planning her trip to Nayarit…

“If I have time and money I would already be traveling to Nayarit to meet @ChrisEvans but I’m poor and a simple automotive industry worker without holidays. This is so sad,” another user wrote. She added. “Anyway, I hope @ChrisEvans is enjoying México. I can’t wait to can watch ‘Defending Jacob’ filming in my beautiful country.”

“So close to Riviera Nayarit but so far from @Chris Evans!!!!” another user wrote. 

Why did Chris Evans do this ad?

The last time Chris Evans did an advertisement was in 2011 for a Gucci Guilty fragrance campaign. Last year, when he launched the Chris Evans Breakfast Show, a Virgin Radio and Sky produced radio show, it was completely ad-free. Evans expressed skepticism about ads in general. 

He once said: “So much has changed in broadcasting since I was last at Virgin Radio that now, thanks to Sky, we can do the show without ad breaks.” He added, “There are so many of them now that we sort of become anesthetized to them, and so if you actually turn your commercial partner into a storyteller… we’re trying this thing, it’s never been done before, it’s quite ground-breaking.”

Maybe Evans just actually really likes Lala Leche 100 percent lactose-free milk. We’ll never know.
