Missed 3, including the one about Pres candidates (inexcusable) and 2 other brain farts,
Pedos de sesos?

By the way how DOES Brain Fart translate to Spanish?

I got to the question about actors and asked the question
"is this a quiz about Mexico or Hollywood" ?
At that stage, as I could not answer that question, I moved on to other things  Beer Beer

Gael Garcia Bernal is a very well known Mexican actor and actors are part of the culture, on top of it he is from Guadalajara so no excuse! Very Happy .
Never seen Amores Perros, El crimen de Padre Amaro, Y tu Mama tambien , Diaros de motocicleta, Babel, La mala educación just to mention a few. Hard to know an educated Mexican who would not know his work .

Gael Garcia Bernal is also one of the stars in the Gillette "Masters of Style" ad. We've all seen this ad a hundred times or more. Like Brigitte says, "So no excuse."

I thought it was some celeb's "uncle Oscar".    scratch 
I know the Brit, Burton, supposedly drank him under the table, when it came to Tequila (or any other alcoholic beverage).     lol!
