When Mexico beat the defending champion Germany in the World Cup, fans cheered so hard that they triggered a minor seismic event in Mexico. When South Korea beat Germany, which sent Mexico to the next round, South Korea’s ambassador to Mexico downed tequila straight from the bottle.
A Twitter user caught the celebration on video shortly after Korea’s win. Mexico football fans ran to the Korean embassy, where general consul Byung-Jin Han was outside. They quickly brought him into the party and handed him a bottle of tequila. In a sign of true unity, Han grabbed the bottle without a second thought and took a fat swig, setting off a chant of “Koreano Hermano, ya eres Mexicano” (“Korean brother, you are now Mexican.”)
