Vazquez's video lays out a map of the city of Miami, and instead of the usual Westeros popping up as the camera moves, there are pictures and figures of some Miami staples.

"It wouldn't really be about a war between the categories of people, but rather how each area is divided socially and how each draws a specific type of person," he says. "We all know how the Venezuelans live in Doral, the Cubans head to Hialeah, and Pinecrest is mainly the white higher-class who tend to love Starbucks."
