Music Monday: “Yo No Se” by Will Ferrell for CASA DE MI PADRE
Every Monday, we highlight one song that you may not have heard of, may not have heard in ages, or one that we just can’t seem to get out of our heads. Enjoy!
Case de mi Padre hits theaters later this month and instead of having a massive advertising budget like other March releases (I’m looking at you 21 Jump Street and John Carter), they’ve focused on capturing the absurd tongue-in-cheek homage to Mexican telenovela films through short clips, teasers, and now even a song.
Watch the music video here:
Armando Alvarez (Will Ferrell) has lived and worked on his father’s ranch in Mexico his entire life. As the ranch faces financial strains, Armando’s younger brother Raul (Diego Luna) shows up with his new fiancee, Sonia (Genesis Rodriguez) and pledges to settle all his father’s debts. It seems that Raul’s success as an international businessman means the ranch’s troubles are over, but when Armando falls for Sonia, and Raul’s business dealings turn out to be less than legit, the Alvarez family finds themselves in a full-out war with Mexico’s most feared drug lord, the mighty Onza (Gael Garcia Bernal).
Directed by Saturday Night Live alum Matt Piedmont and written by Andrew Steele, Casa de mi Padre opens next Friday, March 16. Diego Luna, Gael Garcia Bernal, and Genesis Rodriguez also star.
