After watching this video he was encouraged to write, act and edit his own skits. His wife Josefina joined this adventure, with whom he has two children.
This is how some videos were born that little by little began to go viral, and in which he exposed the different conflicts that a couple usually faces. “A few months before the World Cup (Russia 2018), I started making videos in which Jose appeared on camera with me. When she appeared we would make videos of funny things about the couple. People liked it.” Freixas told this Mexican medium.
A year and a half passed like this, but despair appeared when they noticed that it was difficult for them to grow and reach more users. It was when he thought that doing something for the World Cup, back then, was a good idea.
This is how Jose and Jero shared a video in which they argue because her cousin had invited them to his wedding on the same day that Mexico would play against South Korea. For Jero, the World Cup matches are always fundamental, she is capable of stopping her entire life to sit down and watch one.
This video from four years ago was what made them go viral, today it has more than 3 million views. “Many people thought that this video was a hidden camera that Jose made of me. The news the next day in the world was: Argentine couple discussing a marriage’”, recalls Freixas, who had to clarify that everything was staged.
Since then they have been dubbed the ‘World Cup Couple’ and have not stopped sharing digital content, reminding their followers that love, football and passion often generate tense moments, which can be overcome with humor.
Four years ago they shouted the goals of their beloved Argentina from their room at home, today they cheer on their team from the stands in Qatar and feel very grateful for it. (AND)
