The fever for throwing Dr. Simi stuffed animals at international artists who give concerts in Mexico has become a trend in recent months, as was the case of the Spanish Rosalía, who has obtained approximately a dozen of these objects during her presentations in the country. However, not all the fans of the bands have been receptive to this initiative, since the followers of the band Rammstein campaigned to prevent dolls from falling during the concert that the Germans will give in October.
Given this, the official account of Doctor Simi in Twitter was not silent and warned that he was ready to be done present at the event.
And because they asked, I’ll be there. See you friends from #Rammstein”can be read on that social network.
But the situation did not stop there, because in addition to the publication, a photograph of Dr. Simi’s botarga appeared dressed as a firefighter (since several fans have remarked that the band usually uses fire in their presentations), with a headband that read: “du hast” -one of the representative songs of the group- and carrying a bucket full of stuffed animals of his character in his hand.
The reactions from Internet users were immediate and several of them were amused by the scope that the figure has had.
“I swear to you that for this and many other things I love being Mexican… The net sense of humor with which we see things is unique.” “Heritage of Mexico”. “You’re not a famous musician if they don’t throw you a Dr. Simi at your concert.” “In this case, it is worth not throwing a doll, but the complete botarga”. “It became a canon at once”, were some of the mentions.
Likewise, memes also appeared in the publication and some Internet users made photomontages where some celebrities such as Chalino Sánchez, José José or Juan Gabriel would also have received a Dr. Simi on stage.
“If the great Chalino Sánchez threw one, I don’t see why not do it with Rammstein,” wrote an Internet user.
Why Rammstein fans don’t like Dr. Simi
A few days ago a campaign began to circulate on social networks by Mexican Rammstein fans asking that Dr. Simi’s stuffed animals not be thrown during the presentations that the band will make in Aztec territory next October 1, 2 and 4 at Foro Sol.
“Sometimes telling the truth is uncomfortable… If you really value the work of the band, don’t do this kind of thing. #Rammstein has a very meticulous show and any outside situation can lead to an anger from the band (they end up removing us from the next DVD: ‘vo worse they send us ALV of the next Tour). On this occasion, we do tell them: DON’T DO IT!”, can be read on the page of Facebook called Rammstein Shop Mexico.
Don’t be #duhaster, don’t throw it away. We have waited more than 2 years for this concert. Remember, the sol forum concerts will be recorded for a live DVD!
The criticism did not stop raining down on the followers of the German group, but neither did the jokes about it.
“Rammstein returning to Germany sad because they didn’t get a Doctor Simi like Slipknot and Gorillaz.” “The only thing I read was ‘launch Dr. Similaunch them until they send us ALV on the next Tour”, wrote users in networks.
