When you’re wearing a sombrero, pounded shots of shitty tequila and downing bottles of Corona for Cinco de Mayo, you aren’t celebrating the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. You’re looking for a cheap excuse to get fucking plastered. But what if Mexicans were just as disingenuous as us, but got shwasted for our Independence Day, July 4th?
The good folks over at Flama tackled this very hilarious scenario with perfect results. Mexicans were getting fall-down drunk by shotgunning America’s national drink of Natty Light in a patriotic effort to commemorate the “Great Battle of Fourth of July.” They even dressed as “regular” Americans, donning American flag shirts, patriot hats and white wigs.
And you can’t even get mad at this because as we learned earlier, Americans don’t even have the slightest fucking clue as to why we celebrate the 4th of July.
