Miami Bass Warriors "Going Back to Calle Ocho" Video Premiere

Yesterday, we told you that Otto Von Schirach, Jose El Rey and El Tigre, who together form Miami Bass Warriors, would make their small-screen debut on Pitbull's La Esquina on mun2. Their video for (their only song?) "Going Back to Calle Ocho" -- which we're pretty sure is play on Notorious B.I.G.'s "Going Back to Cali" but we haven't really asked actually, it's a play on LL Cool J's "Going Back to Cali" -- debuted at the start of the episode. What a relief too, because it meant we didn't have to sit through Pitbull's insipid search for Miss 305 -- so much silicone!

But back to the Warriors. Their video, which surprisingly had high production values (for them anyway), complimented well the tongue-in-cheek tone of the song, even if they never get the video vixens to "shake, shake, shake."

Check out the video above to see the guys in action; it should be the first thing you see when you hit play.
