Show transcript
00:02
Hey guys, I'm Laura.
00:04
Notice I didn't say Laura because my name is actually Laura
00:07
Now, when I came to this country from Venezuela, when I was
00:09
seven years old, straight to Miami.
00:11
How you doing?
00:13
People started calling me Laura and I didn't understand.
00:15
I was like, hold up, wait a minute, I'm seven years old and I
00:18
know that's not how you pronounce my name.
00:20
My name is Laura.
00:21
I don't like my name in English because it sounds like you have
00:23
balls in your mouth.
00:24
Hora, Hora Hora.
00:26
I prefer to say Laura.
00:28
It's simple.
00:29
It's easy.
00:29
I don't say a Richard.
00:31
I say Richard, I don't say Salta.
00:34
I see Samantha with a which doesn't exist in Spanish because
00:38
I learned because I'm polite and I respect your name.
00:41
So if I could say Christopher instead of Christofer, y'all
00:45
could say Laura instead of Laura.
00:47
Laura.
00:47
Laura like that song, Laura and Laura.
00:49
Laura de Mi As you can see, there's also a song for my name.
00:59
It's one of the other things that I have to live with.
01:01
Every time someone finds out my name is Laura, they start and
01:10
I gotta sing along because if not, I'll be rude and I'll be a
01:13
bitch who doesn't sing along to my name that's called Laura
01:17
and you need to stop it.
01:21
It's enough.
01:23
I've known you for last but not least my name happens to be in
01:26
one of the biggest Spanish TV shows ever that everyone knows
01:30
it's called, there's also a song to that.
01:34
This show happens to be a mix between Doctor Phil and Maury
01:37
ratchet as hell.
01:39
But the worst part of it all is when people start saying, oh
01:41
your name is Laura, like the show, like the show and then they'll
01:44
act out the whole thing.
01:45
You need the lotus and you need the lo lo and then I have to be
01:51
like, get past gracia.
01:55
I'm just a little puppet.
01:56
I'm a Lauda puppet.

01:59
in English or Spanish or if there's a show based around your
02:02
