Uruguay band tries to bring their most famous songs to Michael Jordan’s ears – Ovation – 02/24/2021
Like Don Quixote fighting windmills, like every impossible dream known to happen, Uruguayan squad Eté & Los problems Indulged in a certain crusade that seeks to be its subject. “Jordan“Reach the ears of God Basketball.
A kind of banter, an unattainable utopia, a challenge as improbable as it is cool, excites its singer and songwriter, Ernesto Tabarez, A fan of Michael Jordan, Who does nothing for the campaign but enjoys seeing the unexpected results.
“Jordan,” which Tabarez wrote in 2013 and became the group’s most popular song, was no one’s tribute The best basketball players Of all times (if not the best), but instead paints an analogy between the classic image of the former Chicago Bulls “flying” over his rivals with a boy who admires a young woman and sees her as an elusive god.
It all started as a joke a year ago: Uruguayan comedian Diego “Menchu” Lesio, in his recreation of an “influencer” on a local radio program, sought to measure his popularity by trying – via social networks – to reach the song and the same thing ‘Air Jordan“.
At that time it had no effect. Was named NBA players They will not read the posts or find out what was happening in Uruguay. But everything changed with the previous player Fabricio UbertoThe song was heard, a member of the historic Argentine golden generation and today a TV commentator.
Tabarez recalls that he was “infatuated” with seeing someone very admired enjoying his song, and from there, Twitter exploded: not only did the famous Puerto Rican rapporteur Alvaro Martin praise the song, he also entered into a conversation with the singer to investigate the guitars used in the recording.
Most of Uruguay is Jordan
“You are like Jordan, flying, by the hands of the rest. In the heights, you are very lonely. And I sat, playing, the ball is in the square. Nothing happened, no one got in,” says the chorus of this song that marked the band.
But the most famous thing is the video: one shot where you feel Uruguay’s privacy on the roof, with a calm atmosphere, some neighborhood guys playing Basketball with NBA jerseys On a street path, before a group of people sharing a mate, smoking or eating chorizo with bread.
This majestic Jordan is not the one who made millions rave with every outcome against the Detroit Pistons at United Stadium, but rather is mirrored in a young woman, dressed in red and black, shyly watching her admirer someone who looks at one untouchable goddess.
She, indifferent to his gaze and the party itself, is the one who flies over everyone.
Tabarez explains: “The literal height of Jordan, which soars above others, and the height of the level of superiority over others seems to me a very isolated place. She has it.
The singer is not just a fanatic. for him Jordan He is “the incarnation of God on earth” and when he touches on his topic or meets to talk about it, he wears a men’s training shirt. 1998 Chicago Bulls And Jordan “Air” shoes first.
Tabarez knows that this is a plan without a prize, a crazy idea that is only part of a game. And he’s not even sure if he wants his song to reach Jordan’s ears because the idea of divinity is to be far-fetched.
“If the song arrives in Jordan, he will just ignore it, he won’t move a hair. He must have thousands of rap songs that you mention. I don’t think he loves the song, it will only arouse any interest in him at the same time it seems to me that it is very funny that we are trying to We are trying to get to a place that we will never reach. “
Like millions, Jordan gave him untold happiness, causing him to wear his shoes even though the sole had already been worn and his feet exploded in pain at a concert.
“It’s a viral campaign for nothing in and of itself. Nobody is working for it to happen but at the same time there, it’s happening. It’s so weird. The song starts with saying,” It’s so weird. “
Within what cannot be achieved, Tabarez He has other aspirations. “My dream is for Uberto to put her on a barbecue party of the golden generation when the Corrippans come out,” he concludes with a laugh. “This is my true goal.”
