Psychopath wasted hours of life mashing up 207 movies to Ricky Martin’s “Livin’ La Vida Loca”

    Back in 1999, Ricky Martin’s juggernaut single “Livin’ la Vida Loca” was unstoppable. You couldn’t go anywhere without hearing it, and that goes tenfold for anyone who grew up in Miami like this writer. It was so ubiquitous that soccer moms knew all the words and yet that didn’t stop it from being a go-to club hit.

    But it’s 2016 now and there’s absolutely no reason why anyone should be so obsessed with the song. Of course, that didn’t stop The Unusual Suspect, who dubs his mashup series Cinema Sings, from literally living the crazy life and stitching together over 200 films to re-create the Latin pop hit. Over. 200. Films.

    From smokin’ comedies like The Mask — whose quote has no lyrical relevance to the song, but who could stop him? — to more modern fare a la Ex Machina, this pop culture psychopath really ran the gamut of modern cinema, and it’s admittedly quite a spectacle to witness. Plus, he seems like a nice guy.
