Las Ketchup is a Latin Grammy Award-winning vocal group of four sisters named Lola, Pilar, Lucía, and (more recently) Rocío Muñoz, all from Córdoba, Spain. Their father is the flamenco guitarist Juan Muñoz, better known (as luck would have it) as "El Tomate" ("The Tomato.") This is the official video to their 2006 signature hit, while they were still a trio, entitled "Aserejé" (known as "The Ketchup Song" in the UK). The song has been a chart-topper all over Europe, the Philippines, and Puerto Rico. It was featured on their first album, entitled "Las hijas del Tomate" ("Tomato's daughters").

The song is also said to have an accompanying dance, sort of like the Macarena. Since it never make a big break into the USA charts, you won't see your Aunt Minnie doing it at a wedding anytime soon. (Deo gratias.) Why did I pick "The Ketchup Song" for this week's Friday Afternoon Moment of Whimsy? You tell me.

The title of their next album is said to be named for their upcoming hit, "Bloody Mary." One can only imagine...
