LeJuan James – aka Juan Antiles – is undoubtedly one of the funniest Latinos on the internet. The half Dominican, half Puerto Rican comedian draws on his heritage to create videos that resonate with first- and second-generation immigrants. Before #GrowingUpHispanic tweets filled our feeds, LeJuan shared videos about his experiences growing up in a Latino household in Florida. Most of the time he portrays a version of his mother – who, like many of our mothers, doesn’t have any pelos en la lengua – as he navigates life. Once in a while, members of his family drop in.

He’s posted hilarious videos since at least 2013 on Facebook, and these relatable videos have translated into nearly 3 million followers on the platform. With the exception of the time he made us ugly cry after he posted a video of himself surprising his parents with a house, LeJuan – whose name is a play off of LeBron James – has managed to make us laugh for years. That’s why we’re looking back at his videos to help us get through this day, week, month, etc. Check out nine videos that will remind you of your family.
