Funny Friday: Food for Thought

This parody cologne ad for a scent called Cilantro is as funny a dig on perfume advertising as it is on Latino stereotypes. It’s written, directed by and starring comedic actors Roxana Ortega and Marques Ray.

Cilantro: Put It In Her Taco — powered by

I think it’s pretty funny because anyone who’s ever chopped some garlic and cilantro knows that they way your hands smell afterward isn’t very sexy (although my SO says he likes that smell – I think he just likes me to make stuff from scratch).

While this video comes to us from Alberto Ferreras, author of B as in Beauty, due out in April.

Ay, mi madre, the irony!

Visit to keep an eye on this talented writer.
