This Parody Music Video About Tacos Is The Only Music Video That You Should Be Watching Right Now

If you are a kid of the 1990s you surely remember Weird Al Yankovic, the superweird dude that parodied classic rap and rock anthems such as “Gangsta’s Paradise” and “Smells Like Teen Spirit”. Well, now we have our own king of parody in DJ Lechero, a carnal that is as SoCal culture as it comes. 

It is no surprise, then, that he went full force on Ambjaay’s “UNO”. The rapper’s video takes place in a taco truck and sort of parodies Latino culture and stereotypes. So, what did DJ Lechero do? He set things straight, eses, by setting his parody, “Cuatro Tacos”, in a real taco truck and making us crave the sweet smell of pastor, the tangy zest of freshly cut limones and the exhilarating picor of a salsa crushed in a molcajete

So first things first, who is DJ Lechero?

Also known as Pablo Gordobar, he is a talking head at The Cruz Show on Real 92.3 Los Angeles. He is a proud representative of Whittier California and Mexican-American culture. 

And this is the original Ambjaay video.

Spot the very cliched Tacos Mexico sign on top of that gringo taco shop. To be honest, we wouldn’t dare eating there, unless we were craving Taco Bell type of garnachas.  

And here’s Ambjaay being handed the keys to the changarro.

Of course his intentions are not the best… cue a bad accent trying to say words like piñata and taco and rico. 

Dear Ambjaay, you don’t really rock the norteño style, so don’t even…

We can’t figure out whether he is trying to perform a very bad homage to Northern Mexico culture or if he is making fun of us paisanos

Seriously, dude, you are trying waaaaay too hard!

Yeah, because all Latino gentlemen are borrachos and all señoras are fodongas, right?

They didn’t even try to hide a worldview full of stereotypes. Man, if you are going to do some good old fashioned cultural appropriation at least do it right. Looks like this guy watched a bit of corrido videos and an episode of Chespirito and thought he was all set. 

The DJ Lechero version, “Cuatro Tacos”, is being praised as the real deal.

DJ Lechero knows his audience. In his show, he has interviewed people like George Lopez, a true icon of Spanish-speaking entertainment. It is no surprise then that he can truly connect. “Cuatro Tacos” is turning into a real cultural phenomenon! Eso, raza!

DJ Lechero is in da house, perros!

The first words that come out of his mouth are almost like a midnight hymn: “Tengo un hambre, goey… jefe…”. And the taquero stands at attention. Like music to our ears. 

That’s the smile of a vato who knows a party will soon be staged in his mouth.

We are sure DJ Lechero had that same expression when he smelt the frijolitos being cooked in his abuelita’s kitchen while the masa was sizzling on the comal

And of course, a proper Mexican taco has a fresh squeeze of limoncito.

How do you spot an authentic taquería? Well, there is like a three litre bucket full of quartered limes. The green ones, not the yellow gringo crap fruit. 

That’s how you eat a taco, reina!

What a perfect tilt of the head, a precise pressure on the tortilla and a mouth so experienced that the lipstick remains intact. 

Damn, that song is catchy as hell!

Un, dos, tres, cuatro tacos… 

Don’t forget the rice and beans on the plato!

Is your mouth watering yet?

There is care in every single culinary detail!

We can tell that this delicacy has been properly fried in manteca. Yum!

Now, that is what a taco truck after hours celebration looks like!

The scene repeats itself hundreds of times every Saturday night in Los Angeles. People start leaving clubs and need a little something to ease la cruda that will surely take over their bodies in a few hours. Nothing better than a taquito bien picoso to get your senses back. 

That pastor is the proof of the existence of human intelligence.

Seriously. Looked at the perfectly carved pineapple, at the crunchiness of the trompo’s surface, at the perfect balance of adobo and fat in the epitome of taco culture. All hail the king, taco al pastor!

And for dessert, a message of peace and goodwill, a message against ICE.

Like most Mexican-American personalities working in the age of Trump, DJ Lechero managed to sneak in a political comment. Yes, tacos unite us all. And no, we don’t want hielo… ICE. Get it?
