Donde Esta La Biblioteca is a YouTube fad revolving around a Spanish rap from the NBC sitcom series Community. The phrase "donde esta la biblioteca" is a basic Spanish phrase that translates to "where is the library?" in English. It is often one of the first phrases taught in beginner's Spanish class.


Description: Abed and Troy meets …Señor Chang in Spanish 101

Season 1, episode 2 of the show Community aired in September of 2009, and was titled "Spanish 101". During the closing credis, Abed (Danny Pudi) and Troy (Donald Glover) perform a freestyle rap using rhyming Spanish words that do not form coherent sentences.


Original in Spanish

Donde, está, la biblioteca. Me llamo T-Bone La araña discoteca. Discoteca, muñeca, La biblioteca Está en bigotes grandes, el perro, manteca. Manteca, bigotes, gigante, pequeño, la cabeza es nieve, cerveza es bueno. Buenos dias, me gusta papas frías, los bigotes de la cabra Es Cameron Diaz.

Yea boi. Boi. Yea. What. It's 2009. Word.

English Translation

Where is the library? My name is T-Bone the disco spider. Disco, doll, the library is in the big mustache, dog, lard. Lard mustache, huge, little, head is snow, beer is good. Good day, I like cold potatoes, the goat's mustache is Cameron Diaz!

Yea boi. Boi. Yea. What. It's 2009. Word.


One of the first uploads to YouTube was September 30th, 2009, and featured two students in their cafeteria covering the original rap. A remix was posted on October 6th, 2009, that has received over 890,000 views as of May 2011.
