Q: The Dominican Uber is your signature thing what do you have planned next?
Dique Moreno: Whatever comes to me. I am a spur of the moment guy so really whatever comes. People recognize me as the Dominican Uber but I have done other videos. It is popular so I give people what they want to keep the hype going but I try not to let that be the only thing that I am doing so I try to give people a variety.
Q: What is your favorite video that you have done?
Dique Moreno: The first Dominican Uber where I was mistaken for an American and then I spoke Spanish. I like that one because that happens to me a lot in real life and its funny every time. It’s the true life of Dique Moreno.

Dique Moreno: I am going to keep doing the Dominican Uber because that what people wants so I will keep that going but I will be doing other stuff.
