10 Things We’ve Learned from Mexican Banda Music Videos

 We don’t watch a whole lot of TV here, and when we do it’s usually Plaza Sesamo (- Sesame Street). But once in a while we get to watch Bandamax,which is completely, utterly, deliriously addicting! It kind of seems like the Mexican version of country music? And while I can’t get far enough from Country in the US, this Banda stuff is full of YAY! or…hotness. Here are some of the things we’ve learned from it:

  1. If you are fat, wear a cowboy hat, cowboy boots, and a BIG belt buckle you are a HOT CHICK magnet
  2. HOT CHICKS dig accordions. Big time
  3. Accordions are just HOT. Smoldering vessels of sensuality, begging to be released
  4. Mini vans are HOT
  5. Tequila is HOT. Oh wait. No. AGAVE FIELDS and Tequila are HOT
  6. Black leather is HOT – in all senses of the word
  7. Polka is HOT
  8. All the music sounds kind of the same but it’s NOT
  9. Pool parties are HOT
  10. Singing about food is HOT

I looked all over YouTube for a not-so-steamy video to put here for you

There’s this one too which is kinda cool (petting the chicken!!!!) but confusing in the way I’ve found a lot of the videos to be… still…it’s FUN 🙂

vive la banda!
