Holy Hell, This Mexican Music Video Is So Fucking Weird It’s Awesome

On Monday, Mexican rock band Café Tacvba released the music video for their latest single “Futuro” and it’s one hell of a trippy ride.

The whole video takes place on a party bus with wings, that’s flying high above the air.

There’s some beautifully choreographed dancing by what I can only describe as the modern day Village People.

The video also has dancers dressed as the Pope and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto…

…the Queen of England doing the robot (¯_(ツ)_/¯)…

…and Donald Trump.

Dancing alongside a gun happy Mexican cop.

And of course, there’s the band itself that’s dressed in very odd costumes and garments.

While it’s not clear what their costumes are supposed to be, some people on social media made this interesting connection:

And they’re all on this party bus, dancing like there’s no tomorrow.

The image of a calavera flying a party bus is playful yet sinister.

For all the wackiness and WTF moments the video may provide, it perfectly captures what the future is about. We’re all together in this hauntingly beautiful party bus, that’s moving toward an uncertain territory that’s neither solemn or optimistic.

Cafe Tacvba will be releasing their first album in five years this spring. In the meantime, they’ll be going on tour through the US starting this March.
