Robert Rodriguez made a faux trailer for a film called "Machete" to use in the "Grindhouse" double feature he and Quentin Tarantino put together. This summer a real film called "Machete" will hit theaters. But for Cinco de Mayo, Machete has a special trailer for Arizona.

Machete, the character created by actor Danny Trejo for filmmaker Robert Rodriguez in "Grindhouse," is a Mexican with an attitude. So who better to come up with a special Cinco de Mayo message to challenge Arizona's new immigration law. So here it is. (WARNING: Contains adult language.)
