A young beach vendor from Acapulco has become a celebrity overnight after a video showing him selling empanadas in his own original way went viral.

Francisco Orihuela Ramírez, 15, is not only a successful salesman, he is also proficient enough to offer his homemade products in 10 different languages — Spanish, English, French, Italian, Dutch, German, Russian, Portuguese, Arabic and Hebrew — to tourists on the beaches of Acapulco.

Paco, as he is known by his family, is fond of music, plays the guitar and is an avid reader. He also prepares his own products, mostly empanadas, but sometimes a dessert known as flan as well. What he wasn’t prepared for was the instant stardom and attention he has received in the last week.

In his unique way, the youth approaches beachgoers and instantly attracts their attention: “What you’re missing is a little snack, like some empanaditas, don’t you think? A good purchase today, as I have ham and cheese, cheese and ham, and diet shark. Salsa and napkins are on the house to draw you in, what do you say?” READ MORE
