Amazing! Gael García Bernal Sings Cheap Trick! Xicanosmosis City (with Chicas)!

May I share that I am forever in debt of midwest correspondent Kristy Rawson! Rawson writes that the clip is from Rudo y Cursi, "a Mex/US co-production of Canana films (Diego Luna and Gael García Bernal) and Cha Cha Cha films (Iñárritu, Cuarón and del Toro). Cheers, Kristy." Click the triangle and feast on this kitschy melange of U.S. power pop re-philtered xicanosmotically via Mexico!

the original:


  1. This is perfect! I'm giving a lecture on contemporary Mexican cinema in a film history class tomorrow. Because I will be the only one in the room old enough to have seen Cheap Trick in concert (and did... in San Diego)... Your blog facilitates a quick cut to "the original"

    Viva cursi

  2. haha! I can never take Gael Garcia seriously after this, this is just too funny. The lyrics do actually match. I have to see this movie

  3. awww....i wanted to watch this at the sd latino film festival but it's only being offered for "members".
