So glad that I was lucky enough to find subbed versions of a string of really amusing Corona commercials that have been running during the world cup to share with non Spanish-speaking readers. They’re really cute & funny, but the best part is the concept being promoted: brotherhood, pride in your roots and the heritage which we share. This idea is championed by the motto “refresh who we are”. Though yes, in the end they may only be trying to sell some beer or whatever lol , and the commercials are pretty comical compared to other more austere and grandiose symbols of unity , in light of recent political events and the tense climate that has been fermenting as a result of the growing movement by groups with antagonizing sentiments towards Hispanics it’s really very cool to see gestures like these. Speaking of togetherness, it has also been felt during the worldcup when it has become “1 for all and all for 1” when it came to rooting for teams. That indeed is mega super chido! VAMOS TODOS!
