Being the beginning of pride month we decided to invite our friends Tony (@tonydirects) and Jose (@thejoseresendez) to this episode to answer some curious gay questions that we had and also talk about why pride month is important.
“Fake Mexicans”, “Ya’ll suck”, “Keep up the great work”. These were some of the comments that were read to us when we told our cousin Fabian -aka- our cameraman to go through our social media pages and grab the best negative and positive comments to discuss them on this episode. This should be interesting….
Over the last two years the Mexicangueys have become a national brand across all social media platforms and their followers are demanding an inside ear to the crazy and exciting world of Jairo and Bryan. Their new highly anticipated podcast Spilling the Frijoles will take you on a wild and crazy ride and will have your ears ringing with laughter. Both Jairo and Bryan will tell short stories that are always intriguing and hysterically funny. Every story is different, but they all take you to unexpected places that you can only get from two Mexican kids from Cali.
The Mexicangueys, Jairo Orozco & Bryan Rojo
Jairo Orozco and Bryan Rojo were always close growing up as cousins in a large Mexican-American family, and some of their favorite memories were laughing and entertaining each other. When social media started becoming mainstream, Jairo joined a few sites and started making original content on Vine. Once Instagram introduced longer videos, Jairo knew what he wanted to do – combine his love for acting, storytelling, laughing, and Latino culture into a page to entertain others. Jairo launched Mexicangueys in 2012 and eventually enlisted the help of Bryan. Now at over half a million followers, Jairo, Bryan, and a recurring cast of characters (including “Braulio” and “Compa Alexandro”) continue to create hilarious videos and cartoon voiceovers. Jairo and Bryan’s style is quite similar due to their upbringing and they use their Mexican roots to create relatable comedy. However, they use their individuality to bring a unique voice and style, and balance each other out.
