Within the Anime Fans community, Chile has become the center of attention.

The video became viral again because she shared her the Twitter account @PopulismUpdates:

Pamela Jiles is famous for Naruto's participation in Parliament, which has become the central image of her brand on social networks », she wrote her account.
It is not the first time that Latin America makes a reference to Naruto since its administrative bodies, since in May 2019, after the ascension of the Emperor Naruhito to the throne of Japan, the president of Brazil, Jair M. Bolsonaro shared a publication celebrating the occasion. "May peace and prosperity continue to flourish in Japan in the Reiwa era, which began with the rise of Emperor Naruhito, after Akihito's admirable reign. And that in this new era the friendship between Brazil and Japan, partners and traditional friends, becomes even greater. Banzai! ».
President Bolsonaro subsequently shared a fan-art of himself, with a direct reference to Naruto Uzumaki as seventh Hokage.
