In media and pop culture
As a greeting, the word was used by Cheech Marin in his 1987 film Born in East L.A. in the phrase Órale vato, ¡wassápenin! meaning All rightman!, what's happening? a popular phrase used by Mexican Americans who have taken the gitano word vato from northern Mexico slang to mean man.
The phrase was also popularized in professional wrestling(as a de facto catch-phrase) by Konnan and Eddie Guerrero.
Óoorale! is the name of a popular Mexican gossip magazine, known for its pornographic content and forged photographs.
Beck's 1996album, Odelay, uses a phonetic English rendering of 'órale' as its title.
Stand-up comedian Gabriel Iglesias uses the term frequently, referencing his Mexican heritage.
