Watch Fellow ’90s Kids Find Out The ‘Macarena’ Is Rooted In Deception

Raise your hand if you consider yourself a ’90s kid. Perfect! That means you remember the song “Macarena” and danced to it like robots at school functions and weddings and parties and maybe at church basically since you were conceived like the rest of us. Try to remember a time before the “Macarena.” You can’t. It’s as much a part of us all as our fingerprints — shit’s ingrained in us. We’ll all be 80 years old one day, rotting away in an “assisted living” residence, and haven’t had a lucid thought in years, but “Macarena” will come on and you’ll suddenly be shaking your ass behind a fellow octogenarian named Brittany.

Well, as it turns out, the “Macarena” is about an unfaithful young lady named Macarena who cheats on her boyfriend while he’s off being noble and joining the war. But she doesn’t just cheat on him with anyone — she cheats on him with his TWO best friends. That’s right. Plural. Dos amigos.

Go ahead. Just watch this video from Distractify and see it yourself.

Keep your hand raised if your entire childhood has been disgraced by the Macarena. Thought so.
