Watch An Incredible Tlaloc Commercial Starring Local Band DIP

Here’s a little something to ease your mid-week malaise: an incredible new commercial for local Mexican restaurant Tlaloc, featuring freak-pop band DIP.

Really, the ad makes a weird sort of sense, given the group’s name and propensity for all things dip-related (queso, anyone?). It also plays up the fact that Tlaloc, formerly beer-and-wine-only, is now serving margaritas, and ends with the restaurant’s madcap catchphrase: “Let’s get drunk!”
