A mall started flooding due to the relentless downpour. The band present in the building chose to grab the crowd's attention with their rendition of Celine Dion's 'My Heart Will Go On' much to the amusement of shoppers.
Have you ever experienced a situation where art seemingly imitates life? You find yourself stuck in a tough situation, and a song befitting the scene starts playing rather ominously. While this may seem right out of a movie, it actually did take place, so much so it went viral on Twitter.
Se está inundando Plaza Patria en Guadalajara y los músicos empezaron a tocar la de Titanic JAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJA I’M SCREAMING pic.twitter.com/VPZ5kGbmQ5— Cagua lulco (@EsauGv) June 9, 2019
A mall in Mexico started flooding due to the relentless downpour, and the band present in the building chose to grab the crowd's attention with their rendition of Celine Dion's My Heart Will Go On made famous by the movie Titanic reported Mexico News Daily. The hilarious outburst took place last weekend at the Plaza Patria mall in Zapopan, Jalisco. According to reports, the Guadalajara area had been struck by "torrential rains and hail" last Saturday. Due to the serious weather conditions, numerous trees fell in the area blocking and flooding roads, and as it would seem it also took over shopping complexes.
This is not the first time that the mall was affected by the torrential downpour. In the past, heavy rain has damaged many businesses within the mall. Just last year, it managed to affect at least twenty of them. The band which was hired to play that evening didn't let floods dampen the mood of the people present in the mall.

Instead of packing up, they decided to play a popular song and remind everyone of the film Titanic. Out of all songs, My Heart Will Go On seemed like the best choice to honor the chaos that the cascading water had created just like in the movie when the ship was sinking. As they began playing the tunes, people stopped to see if what they were hearing was, in fact, real or not.

The scene was just like in the one in the film when the onboard orchestra chose to stay back and play as the ship gradually sank into the water. As passengers on the deck ran around screaming to be saved, the band played their last set which was Nearer, My God, to Thee. Finally, when the water surged on to the deck right in front of them, one of the musicians stepped away and said, "Gentlemen, it has been a privilege playing with you tonight." It was a bittersweet end to their demise.

Of course, the band's reaction to the flooding mall seemed apt and hilarious to be ignored. When the video (Mexicans of Late Capitalism and Cagua Iulco uploaded this video) of this homage to the 1997 movie hit on Twitter, it instantly went viral. The video has been viewed over 7 million times. As per a report by The Independent, Idris who taped this whole thing told the Press Association. "As far as the band goes they all deserve raises because they just played the song out of nowhere. Amazing quick thinking." The translated post read: Plaza Patria is flooding in Guadalajara and the musicians started playing the Titanic TEE i'M SCREAMING.
Con Nearer, my God, to Thee el chiste hubiera sido infinitamente más fino XD— Daniel (@el_asocial) June 9, 2019
Soon people started commenting and retweeting this story. @molerojuado posted a hilarious observation: I don't know if it's better the musicians playing or that lady trying to fix it with the bucket. From then on, people couldn't stop obsessing over the lady's actions. @dario_kras11 wrote: Every time I feel useless I'll think of that woman who puts the bucket Jjajajajajaj. @tofucaducado chimed in: I want to be just as optimistic that this woman 😂.
Arriba dice "caray"?? Kakdkakakaka, cuánta perfección en una imagen xD— Neme 🏳️🌈 (@NemeVanCeles) June 9, 2019
Others like @Olivia94454097choose to focus on how the band's music. She wrote: I remembered the musician who was going to retire in that scene. But you better get back and keep playing with your fellow musicians 😔😥😢😭😭😭. Some were of the opinion that if only the band had quoted the onboard orchestra just like in the movie, it would have been epic! @ms_geeniaz wrote: They would have said that before they started playing and it would be even more epic...
