One might think Nosara is far away from the viral world of the Internet, and in many aspects this is true, but sometimes not even a remote town in the north Pacific of Costa Rica can hide from its comedy of social parodies via you tube.
In 2011 Kyle Humphrey and Graydon Sheppard created a series of 4 videos named “[email protected]#t Girls Say” which had over 30 million views in you tube. Then the book came out, and also many other versions like “[email protected]#t white girls say to black girl”, “[email protected]#t spanish girls say” and every single version you can think about. Well, Nosara has its own version too.
“[email protected]#t Nosara chicks say” was posted on February fourth and only 10 days later (this is written on Feb 14), had over 1300 views, quiet a number when it comes to a community of 4000 habitants with an average of 900 English speaking residents.
The creator of the video is graphic designer Galit Korngold, from Quebec, Canada. When asked why she decided to do this video, she said that “I made another video a few years ago, it was a music video that I filmed during a trip to Nosara in 2010. Since then, I have wanted to make another video because we all had so much fun making it. I got the idea to make [email protected]#t Nosara Chicks Say for a couple of reasons. First, I was inspired by all the YouTube videos of "[email protected]#t Girls Say". Also, the girls in Nosara say some pretty unique things that always make me smile, especially my friends!”
Galit has been visiting Nosara for about 8 years, and lived there from 2010-2011 with her son.
The original video is 9 minutes long on you tube, but for those pressed for time VON edited a shorter version of 2:30 minutes at the below link. Enjoy!
