Men of African Origin who sell cheap and not-so-cheerful items on the streets. Can be found in Tenerife almost anywhere.
The female variant will braid your hair, which is why you can see hundreds of girls with the same hair in Tenerife.
Name derives from "Looky Looky!", as in: "Kind customer, please peruse my wares".
Looky Looky Men: "Hey! You! English! You want to buy nice watch!"
My Good Self: "Sorry, I have no money"
"Yes you have money! You in Tenerife!"
"No really, I don't." *slaps pockets and coins jingle*
"YOU HAVE MONEY! Come on my friend, I do special price, just for you! Show me how much money you have!"
"All I have is... *picks out smallest amount of coins possible* this."
"Let me see! Ah, 4 Euro 30. These Glasses Ten Euro! Special Price! Which ones you like?" *Puts my money in his pocket*
"Uh.. those ones."
"You look, you look! Nice Glasses, yes?"
"Yes, but do I have enough money..."
*While I'm looking at the reeeeeally cheap sunglasses he accosts another tourist to sell them some shit. I thought he'd let me have the glasses so we walked off... I got round the corner and heard:*
"Hey! You! Pwah! You owe me money! You give me 4 Euro 30! You!"
So we ran. Haha, what a loser, I probably conned his family out of a meal that night.
