by: Eddie Olmo
If you are wondering who Juan Bago is then you haven’t heard the song “Pan Con Queso”. Michael Diaz, Juan Bago, is at it again, this time with Oscar Martinez. These two young Dominican actors from Washington Heights have managed to take Wiz Khalifa’s hit “Black and Yellow” and make a comedy spoof video called “Pan Con Queso.”. They poke fun at a typical breakfast or treat that most Latinos eat, pan con queso. The video is filmed in Washington Heights and is about two kids who love bread and cheese with their coffee. Once they realized that they have nothing to eat in the fridge their quest Sbegins for their favorite food.
Even though the two of them are lip-synching, their debut on February 4th of this year has reached over 200,000 views on YouTube.
Diaz is not a newcomer when it comes to fame; in 2006 he had been on Mun2 and Telemundo for the movie, “Juan Bago” that aired in the Latino Film Festival. Michael Diaz starred as Juan Bago, un vagabundo, whose life changes when he meets a girl on the train.
Juan Bago and O performed their hit at S.O.B.’s in Soho on Sunday, February 27, 2011, Dominican Republic Independence Day.
