EDELMAN & AMENDOLA IN MEXICO CITY Scene two. Take one. -Hey, Dola.
-What? What’s up, guys? The bad news is JULIAN EDELMAN
DANNY AMENDOLA I will not be playing in Mexico
because I was injured. -We got your back, bro.
-Appreciate it.But the good news, however,I had a lot more time
to put into my own documentary. Your documentary?
I thought it was our documentary. Why don’t you guys
just sit back, relax, ’cause you’re about to relive
an unbelievable adventure little Dola and I had in this wonderful place
we call Mexico. -Let’s hit play.
-Yeah, I wish I was playing, bro. MEXICO CITY-I’m Danny Amendola.
-And I’m Julian Edelman.-And the NFL sent us here…
-To Mexico City.To check out the culture,
meet the people, live like the people.And have the best four days, possibly,
of our lives. Suckers! I don’t know why
the NFL sent us here. Let’s go.Let’s go!DAY 1Does anyone else
feel the altitude, though?Like, when they’re sleeping? I don’t feel it. Maybe when I started running,
every six breath of mine, I’d get a short breath. Yo, yo, can you pull over here?Mexico City has some incredible sights
and this is one of the most iconic.AZTECA STADIUM
SITE OF PATRIOTS V RAIDERS La casa de futbol,Estadio Azteca.It’s a big stadium, bro. -It’s massive.
-That’s a big stadium. This is where it’s going down, huh? Next time we come back here,
November 19, Patriots, the Raiders, it’s gonna be fun, man.
It’s gonna be on. How do we get in?
Hop the fence? Barb wire? Anyone got a blanket? Let’s look at what
these kids are doing. Let’s go try to play some football. We should have been soccer players. You know what?
I don’t want the soccer scene. Bro, the only reason
you don’t want the soccer scene is because you got killed. -The ground was slick.
-A win is a win. What’s up, fellas? Can we play soccer? They didn’t speak English.
We didn’t speak Spanish, but… It was cool to communicate
through competition.Everyone speaks winning, so…Let’s go. Oh, yeah! Playing against these kids…
They were fast. Let’s go, buddy.We had an Eduardo out thereand he was feeding me,
and I was feeding him.We had a one-on-one connection.Jules somehow…
Usually his shirt comes off.You know what? Wide 20, hut! Goal! He got a goal today,
but that was pretty much it. I shut him down. You can’t do that. Illegal. Illegal, illegal. -Personal foul.
-Four down. -Personal foul.
-Four down. No, no, no, no. Wasn’t that bad. You did pretty good.
You did pretty good. But I do have to
let you in on something. -What?
-I cut you out of scenes from the restaurant. -You cut me out?
-I cut you out a little bit. -Why?
-Artistic integrity, bro. -“Artistic integrity”?
-Spielberg. -It was avocados and shrimp.
-Spielberg! -There was no artistic integrity.
-Spielberg! I’m just joking, bro. You’re in it. MEDINAThere’s an old saying, boys.The quickest way to a country’s heart
is through its stomach.It’s not a real saying,
but let’s eat anyways.We’re here. San Juan Market,
Mexico’s finest market.We’re gonna meet Josefina Santacruz,
world-renowned chef.Hola,you finally made it. You’ve been to a market before
in Mexico? No? -No, this is beautiful.
-Okay.To me, it’s one of the most
amazing experiences’cause you see, like,
how the city bubbles here.On the weekend, it’s kind of
a gathering place. But then, this,
I’m sure you’ve never seen. Crickets. It’s one of those things where you’re in Mexico City
eating a cricket. -Cheers, bub.
-One, two, three… -Not bad.
-Tastes good. So, you can make a taco or just, like, munching it
while you’re watching the game. paprika So, okay, ceviche.
You wanna make ceviche. Josefina welcomed us
to her restaurant, Paprika. Show us the ropes. -How do we do this?
-Okay. Rules, I’m gonna tell you.For the contest between me and Julesy,
ceviche cook-off challenge.This is like an episode ofChopped.
Bro, don’t sabotage me. I think you cook a lot.
Do you live alone? -Depends what “alone” means.
-Well…My observations of Jules was thathe was basically just flirting
with the head chef the whole time. Was there flirting going on?
I don’t know.Dola was over there trying
to cut a shrimp, has no clue.It’s one of those things
where I took it serious. Wait, wait, wait. Time out. Time out. Eat a little jicama first,
clean the palate. My God! I don’t want it to stick while
you’re chewing -Is he like this always?
-Yeah. If you ain’t first, you’re last. What do you think?
What do you think? Honest. You can just tell by the “oh-ho’s.”
No like. But then watch. Take a bite of mine. Tell from the “oh-ho’s.”
Tell from the “oh-ho’s.” I really like the documentary so far. We need to put
the prank scene in, and… What? You don’t like the prank scene? I don’t know if we had the camera guys
there right. I just don’t think it was… That was four cameras there. The prank scene’s going in. DAY 2 I think it’s 4:02. We’re about to go wake up Dola
with some mariachi.Battery low.We found a Mexican dude that looks
kind of like Danny Amendola.He went down to the lobby,
got the key.Not today, buddy. Not today, buddy. Hey, I’m locked out of my room now. Try and get me. Let’s go.So, it’s day two,and Danny No Fun-dola has already
been hiding behind the chain locklike a coward.Let’s see how he handles
stepping into the ringwhere there is no place to hide.Yo, what’s up?
We’re here at Lucha Libre. We’ve only been waiting for this
our entire life. Pretty much we grew up
huge wrestling fans in America.We heard, out here, that the wrestlers
are essentially rock stars.Fantasma is a world-renowned
second-generation wrestler. He’s the guy right there with quads. They call him the Chocolate Champ. Why don’t you guys sit back,
relax, get some popcorn? ‘Cause I’m gonna pop Dola’s head off. Hell, yeah.Lucha Libre’s been here
for over 80 years.It got here in 1933.This is one of the moves
that we do a lot in Mexico.It’s calledtijera.-It’s very easy, you know?
-So, you’re gonna do it to me? No, I’d like for you to do it. Let’s see it one more time.
One more time. -It’s a code word.
-Code word. Jabroni! The first leg up, this one… I’m gonna kick someone
in the head or something. -Let’s do it. Let’s do it.
-Let’s do it. There you go. Let’s go! I know you got moves, I know that now, but are you ready to wrestle for real? -Got it. Let’s get it over with.
-All right. Let’s do it. Wipe that out. Beep it out, NFL. I have the match
of the century tonight.Julian “La Ardilla” Edelman.Yeah. LA ARDILLA
“THE SQUIRREL” El Zorro, he always talks
about being the people’s champ. He ain’t the people’s champ.Against Danny “El Zorro” Amendola.EL ZORRO
“THE FOX” I’m gonna rip his tail off,
and I’m gonna beat him with it. You’re gonna square off tonight.
I want the best match. I’m not gonna lie. The juice has got
a little bubbled in there. Julian is the ultimate competitor.I noticed he came out and he was
a little bit ahead of the tag.I’m not gonna say he cheated
but he definitely jumped the rope. LUCHA LIBRE WORLD WIDE I won, so it was good to get out there
and get a victory today. You gonna lose one sometimes, and I, personally, didn’t lose.
The guy got pinned,but I’m just a squirrel out there
trying to find a nut.El Zorro. You know,
I let you win the wrestling… -I personally gave you…
-You’re saying the wrestling was… It was rigged,
I gave you the better partner. -But something’s been on my mind.
-What? You knew I didn’t want
to go in the lion’s den. It was a bucket list for me
and you knew that. I don’t think we should put it in. You wanted danger, bro. -I don’t like big cat.
-Let’s go, let’s continue. DAY 3You know what they say,you haven’t really experienced
a foreign countryuntil you’ve had
a near-death experience there.So where do you get all these cats? We work hand in hand
with the Mexican government. We’re shutting down illegal
and legal breeding facilities. Has there ever been an instance
where a cat has gotten loose? No. It’s like maximum security. BLACK JAGUAR – WHITE TIGER RANCHJurassic Park
was maximum security as well. So, welcome, guys.
We have two ranchers. He goes and rescues abused or big cats
that are treated in the wrong way. This guy is basically
the world’s most interesting man. -Oh, my gosh.
-Eduardo is officially nuts to me.Hola. Hola,Princesa. My goal in life is
to have enough success where you name a lion after me. Don’t worry, trust me. I already had
it in mind for the two of you. You guys played the best Superbowl
in the history of NFL, I think you’re qualified to be heroes. So, this is Cielo. And that’s Ma-Tzu. -Could we pet him?
-I’m not getting in there. Of course. Trail me, guys. They definitely, probably, sensed
all the fear in my heartthat was just bleeding out of my face.Why can’t we just
go pet a little goat? Safe word is definitely giving me
the beep out.As soon as he started
developing safe words,I could tell his head was always
on the swivel. -So, that’s the nice one?
-No, that’s the crazy one. Like, what do you mean byloco?-She’ll destroy you.
-Okay. Hey, Mr. Kraft, Coach Belichick, I just want to let you know this is what your League
is putting me through. I’m going into, literally,
a freaking lion’s den. Leopard. Leopard’s den. Just stay over here.
Here they come. Welcome. Close the door. He’s Ma-Tzu, don’t worry, he’s…
Ma-Tzu! Just grab him, he’s incredible.
Ma-Tzu.I just wanted to get my hands on him,
on the jaguar.And feel what it was like
next to a beast like that. Come on this side. Come behind me. -I was told never to corner an animal.
-No, no, you come over here, trust me. My palms were a little sweaty,
not gonna lie. Before he moves. So, come over here. -Look, he’s now licking me. Come here.
-That’s me petting a leopard. Come over here.Got to face your fears,
like Batman says.And I was scared
of that big cat today,but I went in there
and I had to Bruce Wayne it. -We made it.
-That was unbelievable. I was kinda comfortable,
but I didn’t keep my guard down.But you always were thinking
about a way out of the cage.Hundred percent.Feeling the love.
Feeling the love here in Mexico.LIVERPOOL INSURGENTES -We’re going to a signing right now.
-Yeah. Patriot fans, Oakland fans,
football fans…Man.No, no, no, no. Let’s roll! -I feel like a Beatle.
-You’re getting this? Which way are we going? -Hey, guys.
-Hey. We’re about to get out there.
Watch this. Let’s go! Look, we gotta go, we gotta go.It feels good to be out here
in Mexico City,to feel all the love from the fans.It was an unreal experience,
and I didn’t think we wouldgo down to Mexico City
and they know who you are,it’s awesome.I want your tattoo.
I want your tattoo, please. I love you, man!It was good to know
that there’s people out therethat love our squad like that.I think we’ve always been focused
on the work, been focused on the art,and it’s never
been about the pats on the backand the congratulations,but once you get into this atmosphere,
one, it’s a different country,two, the picture just
got bigger for me. So, it’s cool.Gracias, graciasfor coming out.
We love you. You guys have been awesome.Tu casais ourcasa. Let’s go! Thank you so much, thank you. Let’s go!Our fans in Mexico along with our fans
back East, we gotta go win for ’em.How amazing was it
that those fans came out? How amazing was it,
I almost died in a hot air balloon? DAY 4No better way to cap a memorable tripthan to see Mexico from the sky.How much trouble
could we possibly get inseveral hundred feet off the ground?I’m seeing four men blow up
this large balloon with fire.I’m just going over my physics
and laws of gravity and stuff. -Let’s go.
-Let’s go.I’m feeling excited,and you have butterflies,thinking about, like, “I’m gonna
get to see a beautiful land, pyramids.“This is gonna be awesome.”We’re up in the air. Holy shnickeys!The name of this city,
we call it Teotihuacan.Teotihuacan means
“The city of the God.”It’s insane. We have three different temples. Sun Temple, Moon Temple
and the Avenue of the Dead. LUIS MARTINEZ
TEOTIHUACAN GUIDE And the last temple, we call it
the Temple of Quetzalcoatl.It’s overwhelming to know
that this placehas been here
since the start of Mexico.And it’s great to see
where people have come fromand gain that perspective.He said that now,
we are, like, 50 meters away. He can go a kilometer up. How high is that? Like, I don’t know how many miles. -“How many miles”?
-Relax.I think we got up to a kilometer high.Then you start thinking
on the way down,you’re sitting there
and you’re kinda like,“Sir, Captain, how do you…?”How do you steer it? -What?
-Turn. How do you turn? I have no control.
I don’t know where we are going. Wait, say that again. Where does our van meet us? -We’re gonna hit a little hard.
-Yeah, okay. It’s not gonna be a… It’s not gonna be
a smooth landing, apparently. So just hold on tight. We’re literally going into cactus. We gotta get over here, bro. Tree! Brace yourself. We’re going down! Got it. They got it. They got it. We’re good! We’re good! Back her up. Take her home. -We’re there.
-Cut nice and tight. Reminds me ofInterstellar
when they had to do it by hand. -I’m McConaughey.
-You’re not McConaughey. -I’m McConaughey.
-You’re not McConaughey. I just steered us in
without any power. Dude, you were scared. No, I really wasn’t. I just… I’d just been thinking, how are
we gonna transition this whole thing? We’re going
from dangerous to emotional. And we gotta get there. How do we do this? -We just play.
-I don’t know. Play it.After we thankfully
came back to Earth,it was time to ruin our trip
in another way.See what I did there? “Ruin”?“Ruins”? Get it?So, we just picked up some goods.‘Cause I like going home always bearing couple of gifts
for my little loved ones. Decided to snag this roho, do a little customization on it. That’s what we call the old B-game. It’s the Belichick. Do your job. We’re going to the top of this, right? Yeah, 100%. -Let’s hit it.
-Let’s go. Feel like you’re on top of the world. It’s nice up here.I was sitting up there,
and looking at the football,I sat back, and just was like, “Man, this was all because
of a game that I love.”And it ultimately got me
to get to explore Mexico.This is a film about MexicoJust a couple brosJust exploring Teotihuacan,
so who knowsWe’re gonna have some fun
We’re gonna see a good tigerI’m gonna make him out
to be a big ass liarI’m going to MexicoGonna have some good timeMay wrestle a couple dudesI’m going to MexicoMexico City, thank you so much.
We love you. Let’s go! Take a left. Take a left. Take a left. Take a left.Take a right.That’s a wrap. What’d you think? I’m not gonna lie. I think we got
a masterpiece on our hands.
