The chancla (or chancleta, depending on where you are from) is perhaps one of the most overplayed themes going these days, because you know… Latinos! Yet, after seeing the following actual trailer for some new Liam Neeson movie, we are happily reporting that any remaining chancla jokes moving forward are officially dead and uncool. When they begin to appear in a Liam Neeson promo for Latino audiences, it’s over. This is the actual marketing copy: “Imagine the power of your abuela’s chancla in the hands of Liam Neeson.”

Liam Neeson, thank you. This is actually a good thing. No more chancla memes and jokes.
