Welcome to day two of our Late Movies experiment. Today we get in the Cinco de Mayo spirit!

First, Joanne Colan of Rocketboom gives us a brief history of the Mexican holiday.

And so, since Cinco de Mayo is a commemoration of the Mexican defeat of the French, I present the French taunting scene from Holy Grail.

Now let's celebrate! Two words...pinata bloopers.

Next, what happens when a baby eats a habanero pepper?

It wouldn't be a party without a Chihuahua race.

And we'll end with Birdie the chihuahua singing "Take On Me."
