(PNS reporting from PHILADELPHIA) Friends and neighbors of Daniel Cardenas are frantically texting each other this morning after his ex-girlfriend Flora Moreno noticed the 28-year-old regional insurance manager didn’t share a new TGIF meme on his Facebook, something he had done weekly since 2010.

It’s Tuesday, and The Madcaps, from Rennes in western France, want tacos from the Taco Truck. In this just-released music video, that means cactus, chiles, Dios de los Muertos, sombreros, mariachis, French approximations of cholos in Pendletons, associated hynas, tequila shots, and luchadores.

The host of YouTube’s popular True Mexico channel — he’s apparently a Brit (no name) living in Mexico City — goes out for tacos al pastor. The 1960s origin of the vertical rotary grill is a contentious Mediterranean issue with Turkey (doner kabobs), Greece (gyros) and Lebanon (shwarma) all claiming firsties. We don’t care. Nom Nom nom.
