(Reddit) A Norwegian comedian wanted to prove that songs could become club hits without making any sense, so he collected randoms words and names in Spanish (a language he did not speak) as lyrics and added cliché saxophones and accordion mixes. The song charted across Europe, reaching #1 in some places.
“Salsa Tequila” is a novelty song by Norwegian comedian Anders Nilsen in Spanish. He doesn’t speak Spanish, as he admits in the song by saying “No hablo español” (I do not speak Spanish). To make the song even catchier, he uses accordion and saxophone mixes noting their usage had become prevalent in many recent hits. The song is written and produced by Nilsen, and was released in 2014 on Sony Music. It was a huge commercial success in Norway and the Netherlands and has charted in Belgium. The lyric music video is directed by Galvan Mehidi.
OK this song is hilarious.
I know there’s an impulse these days to make EVERYTHING a spectacular stunt . . . but please stop. Not everything in life has to go viral.
A guy in the Netherlands was proposing to his girlfriend this weekend, and decided to do something WAY over-the-top. (It happened in a town called IJsselstein.)
So he rented a CRANE, parked it outside his girlfriend’s apartment Saturday morning, and lifted himself up to her bedroom window.
But as the crane lifted him up, it TOPPLED OVER . . . and fell straight into the neighbor’s ROOF.
No one was hurt, and the guy’s girlfriend said yes. So after they talked with the cops, they headed off on a surprise trip to Paris.
But that’s not the end. As the crane operators were trying to get the crane out of the neighbor’s roof using a bigger crane, it fell AGAIN. This time it destroyed the REST of the neighbor’s roof . . . and made six other apartments unsafe to be in.
There’s no word on what charges might be coming.
