To the tune of Caribbean-style music, Florida Watch Action has launched a Spanish language version of its “Pink Slip Rick” campaign: “Ricky en reversa,” aka “Ricky in Reverse.”

The “Ricky en reversa” lyrics say Scott promised jobs and schools, progress and efficiency, but then asks, “Where is the train? Where are all those jobs? Where are the dollars for schools?” The song answers that Scott should “change gears and change course, because Ricky is in reverse”:

“Ricky en reversa” adds, “My family suffers, as does all of Florida,” and that Scott should “drop the excuses and strategies,” “We only have unemployment and more poverty,” the clip says, and “with you all of Florida is headed in reverse.”
