Thursday Humor: The Other Meaning Of Getting A "Brazilian"

Tyler Durden's picture

With mere weeks to go until millions descend on the Carnivalic streets of Rio for The World Cup, it seems the term "to get a brazilian" has a new meaning. As this poor woman discovered, while being interviewed live on Brazilian TV, while complaining in the clip about the lack of police presence near the station, a would-be mugger approaches her from behind and rips off what appears to be a gold necklace. Welcome to the safe streets of Brazil, world...

At least it's not FukuSoccer in 2020!

Will everyone be wearing green jerseys or just the home team?

So do I.


And having been swarmed in Rio, I will never visit there again. I can get it at home cheaper.

Did anybody actually see the necklace?

Am I the only person who saw the reporter punch this poor woman in the face?

Maybe he declared and Oscar Pestorius... "I punched her, but that's OK I was trying to punch somebody else. It's not a crime to punch innocent people is it."

I can't wait for the upcoming World Cup ( disaster ). The crime will be staggering ! Sao Paulo and Rio are uncontrollable battlefields!

A good Capitalist should come out with a new line of women's jewelry - Exploding Dye Pack Bling!  Rip it off a neck and three seconds later the thief gets gets a punk look.

If Brazil allows CC permits to everyone, I wonder how common this would be.

Rio is so hip. It's just the latest thing. Kind of a cross between video-bombing and the knockout game. Should be big in the US in time for summer.

With the obesity levels what they are, Americans will be hard pressed to stop these grab-and-run thieves.

A guy I know ate lunch outside in Rio once.  He had his lunch stolen off his table by a guy on a motorcycle.

The camera crew gear was probably worth a lot more than the dime store necklace.

Ditto on McMolotov !!
Rumors flyin regarding NFL scouts in Rio. Always on the lookout for speed and elusiveness . Moral character a non-issue.

Bastiat's picture

In HFM they come at you like a school of piranhas and leave you buck naked in seconds.

Man, I'm so glad McMolotov is back...always good for a belly laugh!

Stealing gold, though - what a douchebag.  He obviously isn't listening to CNBC or Bloomberg.

I was hoping for the ironic bus smack to the face, but sadly he got away. :(

Hehe, just because Brazil want to build a internet cable directly to EU, bypassing NSA, zio-controlled media has put a lot of negative reports of that country for almost a semester.

Harbanger's picture

I never heard anyone measure time by semester, is that like 4 months?

The value of a human life is pretty fucking low....everywhere. 

Technology will save us! 

...The most distrubing part of the video are the idiots aiming their fucking smartphones for a good view. Carlin, was right again...I GAVE UP ON MY SPECIES.


Harbanger's picture

Idiocracy is global.  You think it's bad now, when the US goes down most of the world will be hell on earth. 

Grande Tetons's picture

To this, we are in complete agreement. 

Pee Wee's picture

Is this not a business transaction?

Pool Shark's picture



You failed to mention he was shot by the husband of the pregnant woman he was trying to rob...


eurogold's picture

This happens everyday in Rio and Sao Paulo. Wait and see how much more happens during the Wold Cup !

Ho Li Fuk.

Itch's picture

Couldn't watch it all, not one of those people would comfort the guy, just sat gawking at him with cameras while he coughed his lungs's a filthy shit hole of the highest order. 

Pee Wee's picture

Perhaps this kind of carnage is best garnished by government and distributed through IRA's, like - oh, Iraq...or armed UAVs?
