This guy who dresses up as Rambo used to work in Mexico City’s Chapultepec Park, posing with tourists for photos. Now he is in LA, being Rambo at the Universal Studios theme park. Heavy validation there. Congrats, Rambo-impersonator guy.

But we knew him back when he was just a local character. His partner, who would take the photographs, called himself “El Cobra.” That isn’t just because of the Stallone movie of the same name. It’s also because
cobrar means “to charge” in Spanish. Get it? He was the one that charged the people in the photos! Ay, qué lástima.
