I Want Gael to Want Me / Quiero Que Gael Me Quiera

Like many people, I enjoyed Y Tu Mamá También for (among other things) the interaction between costars (and childhood friends) Gael García Bernal and Diego Luna. Unfortunately the video clip of a joint interview on Jimmy Kimmel, in which they take up the question of whether Bernal or Sean Penn is the better kisser, has been pulled from YouTube. Now they're back together in another film, which looks to be something like a Mexican version of Talladega Nights. In Rudo y Cursi they play two brothers, two country boys with big dreams. Tato (Bernal) wants to be a singer, and this music video shows his prowess.

I'm looking forward to seeing the whole movie.
