What’s Going on in Uruguay?

Uruguay. What does anyone think of when Uruguay is mentioned? Mention France and I think of the Eiffel Tower. Japan makes me think of sushi. Brazil has big Jesus on the hill. But Uruguay? I have zero preconceptions of what is going on there. Even still, not in a million years did I think this was Uruguay:
