1960s Mexican group Los Beatniks does the "Tampico Twist"

In 1962, Mexican rock ‘n’ roll group Los Beatniks did a song called “Tampico Twist.” The song was recorded the same year by Bill Haley and His Comets, but my internet research this morning yielded no more information about either the band (not to be confused with Argentinean band of the same name) or the single. Regardless, both the song and the accompanying video are pretty much the best thing ever. Latin American 1960s rock groups are the new thing, trust me on this.
