This was by far the most polarizing presidential election of our lifetime. Regardless of what side you were passionately rooting for or against like a crazed sports fan, a new president was announced. Expectedly, half the country was going to be pissed, no matter the outcome.
Last night, everyone was jacked up on Mountain Dew, and we thought you’d like to take a break from hours of CNN and FOX News predictions, and watch people freak out over a random candy-filled pinata, creepily placed in the middle of a sidewalk.
The party store across the street from our office could not sell its Donald Trump-looking pinatas fast enough, and we were able to get our hands on one. We stuffed it with popular Mexican candy, and let the citizens of our country do what they pleased with it yesterday evening.
We attached the adorable Donald to a tree, put a “Candy” sign on him, left a metal tube nearby, and just waited.
If you’re a fan of Napoleon Dynamite, you know how people “do things down in Juarez,” so no harm done, right?
It took a little while, but eventually passersby grabbed the bat and went apeshit on the Trump pinata.
There were a few times we thought the police were going to come by and investigate. Also, we’re next to a federal building and stuff like this usually freaks people out, but whatever. Thug life. People ended up just taking it as good fun. I mean, how can you say no to free Mexican candy inside a pinata?
If you were anti-Trump, this might be a little therapeutic. If you’re pro-Trump, hopefully you’re at least pro-Mexican candy as well.
Check out the Facebook stream below. You can probably skip forward to around the 35:00 minute mark, the 40:00 minute mark where these adorable kids took some shots, the 45:00 minute point where people just grabbed candy and took off, and around the 49:00 minute mark where a grandma finally took him down and let all the candy pour out:
Guess what candy is in this Trump Piñata?
