Funny Friday: Food for Thought

Today I offer you some funny videos I came across this week that while comedic have a lot of truth to them too:

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.

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!
