Do The #Meccarena With Mecca Bingo

Unless you’re someone who watches very little television, the chances are you will have already seen the new marketing campaign from Mecca Bingo. Even if you don’t watch TV but the family do, you may have heard the tune of the advert at least and it’s one that you’ll remember if you are of a certain age. It was back in 1994 that Los Del Rio released the Macarena, an iconic song with it’s very own dance moves.

That song has now become the theme song for Mecca Bingo but it has been parodied and is now called the #Meccarena. The dance moves remain very similar, it’s simply the words of the song that have changed.

Mecca Bingo Parody The Macarena

In the original Antonio Romero Monge and Rafael Ruíz Perdigones sing

Give happiness to your body Macarena (Dale a tu cuerpo alegria Macarena)
’cause your body is for giving happiness and nice things to (Que tu cuerpo es pa’ darle alegria cosa buena)
Give happiness to your body Macarena (Dale a tu cuerpo alegria, Macarena)
Heeey,… Macarena! Aaay! (Hey Macarena! Ay!)

In the Mecca Bingo version they sing

Need one number, do the Meccarena
Palms all sweaty, do the Meccarena
Hoping for a win, do the Meccarena
Hey Meccarena

Dancing The #Meccarena With Mecca Bingo

The opening scene of the commercial sees a lady sat in her front room with her dog. Rested on the table is her tablet and on screen is a game of bingo. As the game continues, the opening bars of the song kick in and she starts to do the iconic moves.

Quite quickly the dog joins in and then we are shown the star of the advert in a different location, joined by other people. She moves around quite a bit but check out the advert from for yourself by clicking the image below:
