This is a clip from the movie, “The Mexican,” in which Brad Pitt’s character, Jerry, travels to Mexico to claim an antique pistol. While there, Jerry gets stranded and needs a ride. Some Hispanic men drive by and Jerry uses Mock Spanish to ask the men for help. Specifically, Jerry says, “I need a lift in your el trucko to the next towno.”
