“They are taking him tied to the back of the truck in this infernal heat. This poor dinosaur. It’s not fair,” Perez added.

In a report by the Mirror, Perez gave credit to comedians Los Tres Tristes Tigres for the popularity of the video as they are the ones who shared it with all their solid five million followers.
“We try to make songs or funny things so that people laugh at what happens to us in our day to day lives,” shared Perez.
