The guests at ‘El Hormiguero’ last night were José Mota and Pepe Viyuela, who presented ‘El hotel de los líos’. Both told various anecdotes, specifically Mota revealed the origin of his mythical phrase “the chickens that enter through the ones that are leaving”.
“The Law of Compensation”
José Mota and Pepe Viyuela visited ‘El Hormiguero’ to talk about ‘The hotel of troubles’he spin-off from ‘García y García’, which they also starred in. Directed by Ana Murugarren, this family comedy opens next Friday March 24.
Pablo Motos asked Mota if it was true that his mythical phrase of “the chickens that come in through the ones that come out” his friend Miguel Ángel Revilla told him for the first time:
No. It is based on true events, it is a story from my land. Before, the houses in the towns had corrals and the neighbors used a median wall to adjoin them. There were chickens that jumped from one pen to another.
Then a neighbor told another that he was missing four chickens and he replied that he did not know anything. A month passed, eight chickens jumped from the other, who told him: “I’m missing another four chickens,” to which the neighbor replied: “Don’t do numbers, the chickens that come in are the ones that come out.” That’s where it comes from, it’s the law of compensation.
In addition, both actors confessed that they had ever been confused by the street. Mota remembered the moment when Santiago Segura told him: “Buddy, you’re like Pepe Viyuela but with hair.” “We have nothing to do with it” settled Viyuela.
