Cholafied: What If Your Favorite Celebrities Wore Chola Makeup?
Jeremy Lin as 'QueLINda' on Cholafied.
You say you're sick of the what I really do for a living memes. And shit people say is so 2011. Well, we've got the next viral time-suck for you.
Up pops the SoCal-based Cholafied website, a genius rendering of celebs in chola-style makeup:
Surprisingly high eyebrows and dark, clown-like lip-liner.
The following celebrities have not escaped the Cholafied process:
-New York Knicks sensation Jeremy Lin.
-"Señor Rogers aka Won't You Be My Chola."
-And, of course, "Chola Bieber."
The website and Latinized beautification of said characters is the brainchild of L.A.'s own Michael Jason Enriquez, who says he's an advertising student at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena.
Cholafied is Sharpied eyebrows, black lipliner and the fumes from a can of Aqua Net. It's for everyone who would draw Chola makeup on the yearbook pictures of the Principal and her crew for not letting them graduate because they were tardy too many times for first period. It's to show the world that nothing is more beautiful than a pair of rainbow Sharpied eyebrows.
We like it, but he fails to give proper credit to influential white-lady cholas like Elizabeth Taylor and Phyllis Diller (below).
We would also like to see a chola meme-maker so we can do our own cholas. We thinks controversial Arizona Sheriff Paul Babeu would look muy sexy as a chola.
