Description:Villagers are working to open a passage to make a road, but their machines keep getting stuck on rocks and the mountain keeps collapsing and blocking the way. They realize it is the devil's doing. A drunk overhears the discussion and offers to go check it out. The drunk goes to the spot and drinks mezcal. He speaks to the spirits there, who tell him they are not allowing the road to be made because it will block their house. The drunk speaks to the demons and gets them drunk on mezcal. He tells the machine operator to keep working while he has the demons occupied. They run out of mezcal, but the devil wants more. Since mezcal is the urine of the devil, according to the story, the devil offers to go into the bottle in order to replenish the supply. The drunk seals the devil in the bottle, and the road is completed. He is appreciated by the village authorities Audio duration [00:07:44].
