Behind the Seams – Mexican Pointy Boots (camp cowboy ravers)

One of the weirdest things I think I’ve ever seen. Camp Mexican raver cowboys in pointy boot and shuffling around to music competitions. The club scene at the end is just plain weird, but there’s a bit when they’re standing in a row outside that is one of the most utterly surreal things ever, especially with the weird bloopy music soundtrack.

“In this episode of Behind the Seams we head to the dusty city of Matehuala, Mexico in search of the pointiest long-toed cowboy boots ever made. Over the past year, the botas vaqueras exóticas phenomenon has overrun the rodeo dance floors and clubs of this area and even spreading North into Texas, Tennessee, Oklahoma, and any place where big groups of immigrant Mexicans have taken root. We made our way to Desierto Light, one of the clubs in this area where party promoters host dance-offs to music known as Tribal Guarachero. For the finals competition, the 17-year-old prodigy DJ Erick Rincón of the 3ballMTY crew performed for a crowd of adoring pointy-boot wearing raver cowboys.”
