That's Life

A few weeks ago we were heading to our favorite watering hole, when he happened upon this:



We were pleased to have a camera with which to take a picture of a cameraman shooting pictures of a crowd taking cellphone pictures of a couple of lip-synching guys with whom, owing to our antipathy towards Mexican pop music, we were unfamiliar. Reyli and Joan Sebastian, it turns out, which aficionados inform us is a Really Big Deal. (Though considering the fact that Sebastian's website lists his cellphone number, really, how big can he be?)

Anyway, here at last is the video in question, "Así Es La Vida," shot entirely in Querétaro - and not just at our favorite bar, but in the seats we usually sit in at said bar.



(And yeah, that's the world-famous Dancing Fountain behind them.)

Update: So apparently the video is unviewable north of the Rio Grande, with strikes us as both un-neighborly and, from a marketing standpoint (this being, after all, a music video) kind of shortsighted. Suffice it to say the song sucks ass (you can maybe hear it here). Click here for cellphone videos of the making of the video. If all else fails, come visit.

Joan Sebastian is a man?? I've heard of him but I always thought he was a woman. Other names one should not give their sons; Kelly, Lynn, Cary, or Francis.

Asi es la vida ... de caprichosa
a veces negraaa

Asi es la vida ... jacarandosa
te quita te pone te sube te baja y a veces te lo da

Not viewable NOTB.

"The uploader has not made this video available in your country".

That's kind of....baffling. I thought the purpose of a music video was to promote a song to a wide audience.

Mexfiles isn´t a fan either, but listens to the radio said...

I don´t think you get a guy with five grammies (and seven Latino grammies) on his cell phone personally, but it takes hard work to live in Mexico and not have heard of the guy, or... heard the guy.

A lot of people aren't willing to put in the necessary work, I guess. I don't think I've ever heard Lady Gaga sing, either.

Ivory-towered elitist!

Joan Sebastian is the MAN.

How can you live in Mexico and not know who he is?

I'm supposed to know everyone who has a kid who was shot in this country?
