Relive Michael Peña's Glorious Defense Of The 'Ñ'

Rarely will you see such an impassioned defense of the "ñ" -- not just an accented "n," but a letter unto itself.

Actor Michael Peña -- not "Pena" -- wants you to know you might be "missing out on a life of romance, excitement, sensuality, love, naturing [sic]" by failing to use the "ñ." It's like an "n," but with a mustache, Peña explains.

The video by MTV's Mun2 first appeared in 2011, but reappeared on Latino Rebels and Cosmopolitan in recent days, as Peña drew attention for playing the lead role in Diego Luna's biopic of the farm workers union leader Cesar Chavez. Latino Rebels implored the U.S. media to #RespectTheÑ.
