Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. This is great! I laughed the whole time! Thx for sharing.

  7. This guy has to win for comedy alone (plus essentially raw fish and vegetables you cant get much more primal)… Hahahaha seriously that just gave me the biggest laugh…

  12. Probably should get his own cooking show. I wouldn’t miss an episode. Spain’s tourism would skyrocket! The economy of Europe and the world would be saved!! seriously! Loved it so much, thank you so much Nacho!

      Kari wrote on October 4th, 2011
      • Go to and give it the link to his blog. Bam! It’ll be in English!

  13. Brilliant video. I think I’m in love. Two of my favorite dishes, raw tuna and gazpacho.

  16. Thank you very much to everybody!!!! I’m so happy today!
    I have to apologize again for my pronunciation… But I’m veeeeeery happy that you laugh with the video (that is primal living too, uh?) and you vote for it.
    Gracias!!!! (means: “Thank you!”)

  17. That was hilarious. I forfeit. I was going to tell my family to vote for my video but I’m jumping ship. Well done my friend

    Ben wrote on October 5th, 2011
  18. I’m voting for you, this was sooo funny! And I’ve never seen anyone marinate tuna like that – dry-frying in sesame and then marinating – people usually marinate before cooking. And putting watermelon in Gazpacho is such a great idea! This would go well with grilled halloumi. Mmm…Grok on!

  19. That tuna looks awesome!!! I love me some barely seared sashimi. My vote is for you and your lovely Spanish accent!

  20. Could I describe this video as John Cleese meets Antonio Bandaras while channeling Julia Child? I loved the camera in the refrigerator scene! I would have never thought to put watermelon in gazpacho! I’ll never look at a tomato bottom the same again!

  21. Love it.
