Eva Mendes Quizzes Her Cuban Father on Modern English Phrases in Adorable Video

Eva Mendes and her Cuban father, Juan Carlos Gómez, have a heartwarming and hilarious exchange in a new video posted on her Instagram. The video shows Mendes quizzing her father on modern English phrases like “ghosting,” “cringe,” and “salty.” Gómez, who immigrated to the United States from Cuba in 1961, is clearly unfamiliar with most of the slang, but his misinterpretations are what make the video so endearing.

For example, when Mendes asks her father what “ghosting” means, he replies, “When a ghost comes to visit you?” When she explains that it means when someone suddenly stops communicating with you, Gómez quips, “Oh, that’s like disappearing in Cuba!”

The video is full of these types of playful banter, and it’s clear that Mendes and her father have a close relationship. She ends the video by saying, “I love you, Papi,” and he replies, “I love you too, mi hija.”

The video has been viewed over 2 million times and has been praised for its heartwarming portrayal of a father-daughter relationship. It’s also a reminder of the importance of cultural exchange and understanding.
