how about "chau" for good-bye? ...and "perdon" instead of "lo siento"...and although it might be hard to explain in a short video, you can't leave out "che!," which might come closest to "Hey, man!"

Very good! and I agree with Kendra, ciao (chau) is very common for good bye. And "che" is really used when you truly know someone, otherwise, it may be considered impolite. Luckily, quite a few Argentines know a little English and will gladly try to help. They are very helpful people there. A little Spanish/English dictionary (if you speak English) can be helpful.
