Nacho Libre’s Iconic Stretch: A Colorful Amarillo Graffiti Masterpiece
The one thing about Amarillo is the beautiful art and murals all over town.
No matter where you turn, you can find a work of art. It doesn't matter if it was sanctioned or if it is a great piece of graffiti art. It gives our community a pleasant boost.
Who can't help but smile when you drive past these beautiful pieces of art?
Now with that said, one could say that sometimes it is great to see a piece of art you never were expecting. If you take a drive near 10th and Lincoln, you will find a nifty piece of art. I'm guessing this piece wasn't sanctioned, but it was put up on a wall and it brings giggles to anyone who passes. This piece of art came straight out of the movie Nacho Libre.
Nacho Libre is a comedy starring Jack Black, who plays a monk who has been treated badly all his life and becomes a Mexican wrestler or a Luchador. In one scene, Nacho is doing these cringe-inducing stretches in his "recreation" clothes to impress a nun.
This cult movie and this particular scene has become iconic and it is now on the side of a wall in downtown Amarillo.
If you get a chance, take a drive downtown Amarillo near 10th and Lincoln and get a good laugh at Nacho Libre doing his stretch in his white pants and blue shirt on the side of a building wall.
