Alexa, Play Despacito

"The sudden response to something sad happening. This sadness can go from mildly inconveniencing to a tragedy of some sort."
The Urban Dictionary definition of "This is so sad Alexa play despacito."

The sample use is dialogue: "Hey man my phone just died"/"This is so sad Alexa play despacito." It seems to fit the niche that used to be occupied by: "Cue the world's tiniest violin."

Here's the Know Your Meme article on "Despacito," including the video of the song (which I won't embed here, because I don't do all the remedial education anyone might need). It's the most-watched video of all time, I'm reading.

Here are the lyrics, translated into English, in case you're wondering what is ludicrously sad about it. Short answer: nothing. It's about sex:

Who is that girl? Zuleyka Rivera:

Why the frowny face, Donald?
