Unless you have been under a rock for the last few months, you have probably already heard of local “musician” Darin “The Costa Man” Talbot, the toe headed tourist, formerly known as “Mr. Tahoe”.
Thanks to the popularity of the aforementioned “song”, The Costa Man recently received an arts and culture award on Costa Rica Day from the city of Los Angeles; during an inspiring ceremony that tens of people attended. We have included an embarrassing excerpt of his acceptance speech below.
Sadly, The Costa Man received no awards for his Spanish that day, but everyone did get a nice chuckle at his Costa expense.
But we aren’t here to talk about The Costa Man’s terrible Spanish, we’re here to talk about The Costa Man’s dream. A Costa dream that you can help make a reality; if you have a credit card.
Although The Costa Man has all the talent and the endless ideas for massive success, what The Costa Man doesn’t have is enough money or any for that matter, because the only thing that the Costa Man isn’t good at, is saving money.
According to The Costa Man’s gofundme campaign, despite working tirelessly for over 25 years, The Costa Man is still $250,000 short of his $250,000 goal. The full amount needed to purchase his “Costa Man Beach House Restaurant Retail Space and Bar” where he will play his Costa Music 7 days a week, 365 Costa days a year.
Correction: $249,990 short of his $250,000 goal.
According to The Costa Man “The Costa Man’s value and notoriety has never been higher in Costa Rica thanks to his “Costa Man” video going viral reaching nearly a million views”. Unfortunately though, The Costa Man cant buy his dream bar with Facebook likes, for that reason The Costa Man needs your money to make his dream a reality.
The Costa Man isn’t just asking for handouts though. The Costa Man has some gifts lined up for all the gracious Gringos generous enough to donate their hard earned greenbacks to The Costa Man’s Costa cause. We have listed them below but be warned Prices are posted in US Dollars not Colones.
