PREGUNTA: Why would POCHO run a 15-minute (!) video on a Wednesday without any jokes about chanclas or twerking or nalgas?
RESPUESTA: When it stars POCHO amiga Roberta Valderrama. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll jump and shout when you check out The Callback. Roberta plays an actor who maybe is a little too intent on getting that big Hollywood break with a small part in a TV cop show. (NSFW adult language and situations, but no nudity or nalgas.)
PREVIOUSLY ON ROBERTA VALDERRAMA:

It’s a loud chicken, and then it’s a really angry bird. (No frijoles were harmed in the making of this video.)

Yup. You figured it out. A five-second-long explosive video meant to help your Spanish vocabulary. Click to play. What do you have to lose? OK. Five seconds of your life. Eight seconds if you include the opening and closing credits. And yet, having a good vocabulary is worth the time. Am I right, people? *applause*
