A young man from Spain has become viral after resorting to logic to answer a youtuber’s question. Although the sequence was originally published in mid-2017, it has been shared again on the social networks Recently.
The clip is part of the program “Saber y Potar” by youtuber Sonia Suárez, who came to a place to interview a group of young people who were partying. The girl approached one of those present to ask if she could name a writer from the Generation of 27. “But if we are in the 21, of the 27 there are none yet”, he responds.
A friend of his, who was nearby, intervened and made him realize his mistake, although taking the opportunity to insult him.
The video, as expected, has attracted the attention of thousands on social networks, mocking the protagonist of the video and criticizing the Spanish educational system.
It should be added that the Generation of 27 is the term used to refer to a group of Spanish writers and poets of the twentieth century that became known in the cultural scene around 1927 and that meant the replacement of the Generation of 98 and the Novecentismo. Among those who are part of this group, the names of Miguel Hérnandez, García Lorca, Rafael Alberti, Luis Cernuda or Jorge Guillén, among others, stand out.
