It is genuinely very existentially stressful for me to process the fact that Los del Río’s “Macarena” is 25 years old. (Then again, there is nothing about 2020 that hasn’t been genuinely very existentially stressful, so it feels in keeping with the general mood!)
Seven Star School of Performing Arts decided to pay tribute with a cheeky lil riff on the original, titling their version of the iconic dance “The Maskarena”; there’s nothing new about it except for the addition of face masks, but it gets the job done in terms of bringing the nostalgia factor. (And promoting responsible hygienic practices appropriate for 2020.)
Check it out below via The Comedy Brief, and don’t blame me if the tune gets stuck in your head semi-permanently! Also, wear a mask(arena)!
