India

India

fluffy goes to india gabriel iglesias
as well throw Mexico in there for extra credit because there's that many people and yes they have the internet they got the Internet they got Bollywood they got Hollywood they understand American culture so much more than we understand theirs second thing people tried to warn me about going over there

Gabriel

be careful

India

is a third-world country don't drink the water in

India

it contains parasites that'll make you really sick don't eat the food from the street people
especially the street meat it contains a parasite that'll make you really sick and most importantly there's a lot of crime over there don't stay out late when the Sun

Goes

Down I'm like is it that bad so I'm like let me get this straight there's a lot of crime don't stay out late don't eat any of the food from the street vendors and don't drink the water why does that sound familiar that's Mexico when Martina and I got over there we found out that

India

n
people and Mexican people have so much in common you guys I'm telling you it's insane how similar we are especially the food the food is so similar for example Mexicans love tortillas

India

n people love naan bread which is a fluffier form of a tortilla Mexicans love chicken

India

ns love chicken Mexicans love hot and spicy

India

ns invented hot and spicy most popular drink in Mexico is Fanta most popular drink in

India

is Fanta

India

n people worship cows Mexicans love barbecues a lot of
similarities most of the people that I met over there were very hard-working and humble and I got to tell you every time I talk to someone I was always greeted the same way they look at me they put their hands together they do a little bow and they say namaste which is an endearing hello it's really nice and sweet and then I noticed that

India

n people when you're talking to them do this thing with their head or it will begin to move side to side as they're speaking now first when you
notice that you think oh he slept wrong he just got a kink in his neck get a tempur-pedic now when they they start speaking their head starts moving and I noticed this the guy is checking us into the hotel and he's really cool he's like listen if you have any problems at all okay you call the front is to press zero we will send somebody to your room to help you by ever you need you we got it for you right here okay very good now one thing I notice is the more they talked and the more
excited

India

n people get the more the head starts to move around somebody at the hotel yelled out to the clerk that's

fluffy

and the guy was like oh my god I don't believe it I can do it I thought it was so crazy I work on

fluffy

love you love it even crazier than that is that the mouth is actually connected to the neck when the mouth stops moving the head stops wherever the mouth left off and when you see

India

n people talking to each other you can see it okay let me tell you son okay
put it okay hold up wait wait wait wait wait wait okay like if you're

India

n and you stutter you are so screwed i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i somebody stop it I'm not gonna lie you guys when I first saw this happen I thought it was hysterical I thought it was funny but then I started thinking about it head movement is just a form of expression no matter where you live in this world people express themselves in their own unique way whether through facial expressions hand gestures body movement
extra words everywhere you go things are different and that's just how they express themselves in

India

now back to the whole

India

ns Mexican thing that is something else that we share in common with

India

n people head movement now some of you in the building tonight are like stupid we don't have head movement yes we do it's a little different see with

India

n people the head movement is side to side Mexicans are head movement is front to back the difference between that is that with
Mexicans we have to be very very upset in order for you to see the head movement otherwise you can't tell with

India

ns it's all the time or today is such a nice day it is such a beautiful day today I am so happy it's very nice very good for my god I can't believe it so nice is that a Brit Mexicans when we're mad that's when it comes out for non-latinos it trust me you cut off a Mexican in traffic see what happens that's funny I don't know why the black people are
laughing you guys take it all I don't know you did it oh hell no I know you're talking about me I made myself dizzy so let me tell you guys if you ever get the opportunity to travel to

India

I encourage you to check it out you are gonna see some beautiful things you are gonna see some amazing things you're gonna see some sad depressing things and some real horrible things overall it's a well-balanced trip but when you get back home here to the United States you will have a whole
different appreciation for your life believe that I guarantee this you guys there's a lot of people in

India

and what a lot of people comes a lot of traffic first things first American traffic and

India

n traffic very different here whatever happens on the freeway will stop the whole freeway in

India

there's 10 times the traffic but it moves see the problem is Americans were fascinated by accidents we're fascinated by the idea of seeing potential death that's why we slow down on
fluffy goes to india gabriel iglesias
the freeways we say we don't want to see it but what happens in traffic there doesn't even have to be a collision you could be on the 101 freeway and a car has a tire blowout and it's spins doesn't hit anything it's now facing oncoming traffic you know what happens to the rest of the freeway even on the other freeway where there's no accident somebody might be dead sorry in

India

if there's an accident in the middle of the street you know what they do they drive
right around it they don't stop and it's not that they're not sensitive to the situation they are it's just that there's so much chaos that happens on a regular basis they just need to get to work they do see what's happening and believe me their heartfelt you know they'll drive around I'm so sorry for you nothing stops the flow of traffic in

India

they need to get from point A to point B and so they go they go if there's an accident they drive around if
there's something blocking the street they get on the sidewalk to go around it's amazing the way they drive and here's something else no one uses turn signals over there no one uses turn signals they use a horn now if you go to

India

tomorrow from the time you get there to the time you leave you're constantly gonna hear a horn it's an actual language when people are driving I'll show you you're driving a car on your right current car on your left quicker light up
ahead they talk to each other while they're driving and they barely miss each other every single time also you'll be on the 101 freeway here and there'll be six lanes in

India

you'll see six lanes but guess what you'll see twelve cars across yes they have lines but they're basically there to let you know more or less the direction you might want to go in they're this close to each other and even at the light that communicating you see everything cars trucks vans
motorcycles pedestrians cows children all waiting for the light and they talk at the light with the horn current very good you can go you can go turn welcome you're welcome go go nothing stops the flow of traffic over there

India

n people drive think of ants you know how ants travel in a straight line and if there's something in the way like a rock ants will split up go around the Rock and reunite or climb over the rock worst case scenario they dig a whole angle under the rock that's
the mentality of driving in

India

a man can get shot in the middle of the street people just look at each other somebody pick him up and they'll drag his ass onto the sidewalk and if there's an accident and they need to get around guess what's gonna happen to that guy on the sidewalk nothing stops the flow of traffic in

India

except a cow now I know we've always heard the stories and the jokes about all

India

n people don't eat hamburgers I asked the question and I found out
it's believed that cows are people who have died and they've been reincarnated and their new life is now the cow which is why they don't eat them and why they give them all the love and respect in the world over there I saw this firsthand there's a cow crossing the street while we're driving and the cows know they're cocky they know that they can cross no one honks at the cows no one yells at the cows no one touches the cows they wait for the cows to finish crossing the
cow that we had laid down the driver just shut off the car started tweeting there is a cow in the middle of the street hashtag Moo Moo I asked the driver what's going on Saturday there is a count I see that there's a cow are you gonna honk at it go around what's what's gonna happen we cannot we cannot honk at a cow we must wait for the cow to move you're caring I am not kidding we must wait for the cow we drove past a dead body 15 minutes ago that is probably him like
seriously the driving situation over there is so intense you guys one morning one morning while we're there I needed to get to the airport fast because I overslept and so I get in the cab and I hand the driver a fifty dollar bill and I go sir I am running very late I need to get to the airport as soon as possible whatever side street you have to take or back road I'm all for it whatever you have to do let's do it and I handle the money and it

goes

very good let's go and we take
off the guy is hitting anywhere from fifty to seventy miles an hour on the street we are making incredible time I notice that we're heading in the direction of a red light you ever been in a car with someone and you're paying attention to what's going on and you notice that you're about to hit a red light and you you know how you start to mentally and physically prepare yourself for the deceleration of the car and you start anticipating the pressure from the brake and if you
don't get the sensation of slowing down by a certain point all alarms go off in your head and you sock the driver in the chest not only did I not get the sensation of slowing down I got the opposite he gunned it towards the light and it caught me off guard I couldn't even scream I was like and then I got air he didn't even know what he did he looks at me he

goes

what is wrong what do you mean what is wrong dude didn't you see the red light as calm as can be didn't you see
fluffy goes to india gabriel iglesias
there was no one there you told me whatever you have to do okay but ever you have to do oh you do do you want to yell or do you want to make plain he made a good point I sounded like a third-grader I want to make clean like seriously that's a video game I want to see I want to see Grand Theft Auto

India

fruit bats and one of them actually six of them made it inside of the building and they're flying around and they're hanging out in the rafters and one of them decides to fly down and basically when I was doing the kicks I stepped into the line of flight of the bat and he caught me right here and I look up and you see it and you can hear it the

India
