I've never heard that one, but that's what it seems.
In Mexico we have:
-Creerse la última Coca-Cola del desierto.
-Creerse la última cheve/chela/cerveza del estadio.
-Creerse la divina garza.
-Creerse el/la muy muy.
-Creerse mucho
Ain't it wonderful to be alive when the Rock'n'Roll plays...

Creerse el amo del cotarro.
Creerse el put* amo.
Se lo cree mucho.
Se lo tiene muy creído (he is very full of himself)
Lo propio de la verdad es que se basta a sí misma, aquel que la posee no intenta convencer a nadie.
"An enemy is somebody who flatters you. A friend is somebody who criticizes the living daylights out of you."
