Who knew a bunch guys in Mexican cowboy outfits would become part of a hip trend?

This post kicks off an occasional series of brief posts we're calling Found Mariachi in which we share unlikely mariachi sightings.

We kick things off with Lady Gaga.

No, seriously — Lady Gaga!

And because we recognize that one occurrence does not make a trend, but three do, here are two more:

Our show this week features the Korean hip hop group Clover getting their mariachi groove on.

Back in February I wrote about Metalachi, a heavy metal mariachi band from Los Angeles.

So there you go: an official trend. You read it here first, vato!

Gente, send us your own unusual mariachi sightings.

Viva el mariachi!
