Fiesta Medal Maniac Tony Infante is back with another 8-bit gamer medal. You may remember Tony from 2017’s hit Taco Pacman (it adorned non other than Rey Feo himself!) and continuing with the theme, he was proud to release the Taco Donkey Kong Fiesta Medal!
Tony and I both share a love of Diego Bernal’s Mariachi Mario Fiesta Medal from 2014 — in fact, that was the medal that inspired both of us to create an 8-bit series. So, for Tony’s 2018 Fiesta Medal we paid tribute to Deigo’s medal by incorporating Mariachi Mario into the mix! Instead of dodging barrels, Mario much jump over tacos that the fierce Donkey Kong is throwing to save the princess. We also replaced the “Oil” can on the bottom with a barrel of salsa.
One dollar from every sale of Taco Donkey Kong will go to benefit Youth Reclamation, Inc., a charity that empowers today’s youth to change their lives.
“Youth Reclamation, Inc. provides character development programs for the youth of San Antonio. The programs teach students a deeper learning of life changing principles and concepts leading them to respect themselves and others,” Tony told us. “The program is important because I believe that if we want a better community and city, we must help all of our youth understand how they are a part of our neighborhood. This charity is one that is making a difference in the lives of many youths that feel left out of our society. I believe that we can help them while they’re young.”
