A small tech company called Nopalito Games¬†has created a Mexican¬†version of the popular and addictive video game Flappy Bird featuring embattled Mexican President Enrique Pe√Īa Nieto.

In the satirical take on the game called Flappy Pe√Īa, the president must ride a seagull ‚ÄĒ a reference to his wife who is a soap opera star known as "La Gaviota" ‚ÄĒ as he tries to stay afloat and avoid angry protesters, a Mexican white house (a nod to the housing scandal involving the first lady and a government contractor), a sign that reads "43" in reference to the missing Ayotzinapa students and an old oil rig.

If Pe√Īa Nieto falls, he says things such as "Ya s√© que no aplauden," Spanish for "I know they won't applaud," a phrase that went viral¬†after the president didn't notice his microphone was still on and complained reporters did not clap after one of his speeches.
