Will Ferrell plays Armando Alvarez in Casa De Mi Padre, a film almost entirely in Spanish, and about as close as it gets to a perfect concept. To promote the soundtrack, which just released a track listing (with the title track sung by Christina Aguilera), Funny or Die is hosting the video for “Yo No Se,” in which Ferrell, Pedro from Napoleon Dynamite (Efren Ramirez), and a fat guy who kind of looks like Horatio Sanz (Adrian Martinez), sing about not knowing why the moon rises or why the blue flower grows (“Why does the blue flower grow?” “Yo no se.”). When you think about it, it’s sort of like the Mexploitation version of ICP’s “Miracles,” which was itself sort of like a violent clown rap version of “What a Wonderful World.”
That’s why it’s better to be a musician than a scientist. Instead of trying to find out why stuff happens, you can just get stoned and sing about how awesome it is that you don’t know, and chicks will like you twice as much for it. I think chicks like musicians so much because deep down, there’s still a part of them that thinks music is magic. No matter how sophisticated they get, they still love few things as much as music and shiny things. Girls are like little gollums when you think about it.
