Google pays homage to Tato Bores
Internet search engine Google paid homage today to Argentine comedian Tato Bores, by putting a cartoon sketch of his classic square-cut glasses and hanging telephone wires he used in his show on the home page of the site, in dedication to the artist on the day he was born.
Famous for paying homage to different artists and people across all spectrums, the site was displaying the drawing on their homepage today, in the mark of the artist’s birthday.
Born on April 27, 1927 in Buenos Aires, Bores starred in a total of nineteen films and made infinite appearances on television and on stage. Even still, his great success was brought out by his revolutionary way of performing monologues on his television programme, in which he would use the large telephones to talk to hugely famous celebrities who he’d have sarcastic conversations with.
The artist’s real name was Mauricio Rajmín Borensztein, and he died at the age of 68, on January 11, 1996 in his Palermo apartment in Buenos Aires.
