Music Video: Piñata Protest – “La Cucaracha”

Media | May 22nd, 2013

San Antonio’s Piñata Protest’s new video for “La Cucaracha” premiered the other day. The song is featured on Piñata Protest’s new album El Valiente which was just released on Cosmica Records and Saustex Media. Shot and directed by award winning filmmaker Jim Mendiola, the video packs over 1,000 still photographs and 144 rubber roaches into a warp speed tour through the streets of the band’s West Side neighborhood in one minute flat. Kind of reminds me of the awesome Joey Ramone music video for “New York City.”
