Two brothers from southern Spain performing in drag have hit Youtube with a parody of “La Gozadera,” the Marc Anthony/Gente de Zona song that currently tops the Spanish charts. In the U.S., “La Gozadera” peaked in the third spot on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart last week, and is currently at no. 9.

The duo Los Moranco, whose act is hysterically, made a version of Gente de Zona and Marc Anthony’s Latin summer hit that digs at politics in the European Union, particularly the handling of the crisis in Greece.

In the video for “La Pelotera,” which translates as “the mess,” two characters named Antonia and Omaita (Cesar and Jorge Cadaval) take to the top of a Spanish galleon with a group of dancers to sing about what they describe as the sinking of the European Union -- “the lowlands are lower than ever,” goes one line. Taking shots at Angela Merkel, Alexis Tsipras, and Francois Hollande, they have choice words for Spanish Economic Minister Luis de Guindos, “el mas feo de tos” (“the ugliest of them all”).

While Los Morancos’ streetwise Andalusian accents may be impenetrable to some, the video, shot in a theme park in Seville, is ridiculously colorful, and the choreography rivals that of the “La Gozadera” original. “La Pelotera” has over half a million views on YouTube.

Los Morancos, whose satire in videos and on television is habitually aimed at politicians and celebrities, also made this don’t-miss parody of Enrique Iglesias’ “Bailando” in 2014:
