After suffering several fractures in his shoulder due to an accident that occurred while he was playing a virtual reality game, Mexican actor Eugenio Derbez was hospitalized and underwent surgery.
Following his discharge, he has been spotted in public for the first time since the accident with his son José Eduardo. The reveal happened through Jose Eduardo's TikTok.
In a recent video that can be seen on the artist's account, Derbez is shown sitting at a restaurant table with his family. The actor wears a support wristband on his hand and looks puzzled at his son, who is recording him as if he were a paparazzi.
The TikTok, which already has more than 3 million views in one day, also featured the now-viral audio 'what's that!' from SpongeBob as the background track.
A painful recovery
Derbez recently said in a brief Instagram live that his physical therapies have been very painful, referring to them as "torture."
"There I go, I'm doing well but, ah, how it hurts! I'm sick of feeling pain every day," said the actor while traveling by car with his wife Alessandra. "It's two hours of torture, of stretching your muscles until they break," he continued, emphasizing the exercises he has to perform during his recovery therapy.
Despite resting, the second season of Acapulco, an Apple TV series starring Derbez, was recently released, telling the story of Maximo Gallardo, a wealthy tycoon.
