This Is Just A Good Mariachi Band!

A few years ago I was riding the subway and a mariachi band got on. One of the men played a guitar much like the one seen in the back row of this video. It was admittedly a very big guitar! But anyway, the band finished up their song right as the train pulled into its final stop (when I take a train, I take it all the way) and this tourist-looking woman with a fannypack walked up to him and said “Excuse me, but what is that beautiful instrument you are playing called?” The man just looked at her with these sad, grumpy eyes and said “guitaro” and got off the train. And that was always the funniest mariachi band-related thing I had ever seen until today. (Via HaveYouSeenThis.)
