When you love your culture… you hear whatever you want to hear.

“You heard what you wanted to hear”

That is what I told my friend Jennifer when she was singing Pitbull’s Bon Bon (we no speak Americano) and decided to remix it… believing with her whole heart that Pitbull had created the “Costa Rican” Summer anthem. Unfortunately, only half of that is true… let me explain…  Jennifer mentally remixed the song and channeled her TICA PRIDE.

Here are the lyrics of the song…

Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom,dale Cosa Rica,
Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom,yo quiero estar contigo,
Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom,tu quiere estar conmigo
Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom,dale Cosa Rica!

But Jennifer, the proud TICA that she is… thought the song said…

Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom,dale Costa Rica,
Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom,yo quiero estar contigo,
Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom,tu quiere estar conmigo
Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom,dale Costa Rica!

I laughed at her… I thought it was hysterical (did she not know Pitbull is Cubano?)

Well the joke is on me… because great communities are born when people share a belief or a common interest… a few days later Jennifer shared this video on my page showing two young Ticas singing the “Jennifer Tica Remix” of Pitbulls song… proving that she is not alone…

 

Enjoy the video… buen provecho or mejor dicho PURA VIDA!!!
