“Pimentel the blogger, who began his Dominican entertainment news site ThatsDominican.com in January (2011), caught up on the news and immediately brought out his video camera. The result, posted a day after the other Pimentel’s arrest, is a video which has received almost 24,000 hits on YouTube and was the most popular José Pimentel joke passed around on social media sites.”
“enter Manuel Minus P of ThatsDominican.com and this virtual town might not be big enough for two viral funnymen. Unlike Bago, Minus P’s material highlights more island-centric quirks, complete with segments about the comedic archetype Dominican male, Dominican female and even Dominican parents!”
“Hablamos con Manuel Pimentel, quien se ha destacado por ser el líder de ThatsDominican.com y que con sus amistades, han logrado 1,6 millones de visualizaciones con sus videos y más de 6,300 suscriptores. Utilizando apenas YouTube, sin necesidad de llegar a los medios de comunicación tradicionales, ha traspasado barreras”
“If you speak Spanish, or even vaguely understand it do yourself a favor and check out all the videos of these young men in their official site ThatsDominican.Com. You might as well give in now; as their fan base keeps growing I don’t see these guys disappearing anytime soon.”
“Manuel nos cuenta que este tipo de trabajo se debe al añorar su tierra natal, mantiene sus lazos culturales escribiendo sobre las cosas típicas que recuerda cuando residía en Quisqueya. No es un secreto que este chico en poco tiempo ha calado en la popularidad de muchos seguidores a nivel mundial”
“I’d be remiss to let this month of special posts go by without introducing y’all to Manuel “Minus P” Pimentel, the hilarious genius behind That’s Dominican [dot] com.”

Para Tommy Pena (Actor/Comedian)
This site is composed of everything I love, this is my youth, my past, my present and I am holding on tight to all of these memories so they can be part of my future.
Growing up at times I would always ask myself about certain things, and try to remember parts of my youth at times coming up empty handed on the results, this is my effort to make it easier for you. I’m not going to lie and pretend like I am also not trying to make this site profitable, I’m Dominican and have a need to win at everything I do, you all should know better, but with all sincerity I can tell you that this is a labor of love, from the time I get up to the time I go to sleep this is what I do, this is my “let’s go to a club” night, this is my “I want to learn Karate” days, This is my “Football” time.
I ask of you all, if you enjoy the culture as much as I do, if you feel an inherent need to know where Dominicans come from and who we are, to spread the word to your friends about this site. I’ll go a bit further and ask of you to contribute, with any original pictures / posters / music / videos that relate to our culture that you feel people need to see. By being selfish in my need to know my own people and learn about myself, I become giving in sharing whatever I find with you. Be selfish about the Dominican culture, and share as well, this is for all of us. – Manuel “Minus” P
