    Mildly offensive can be funny, too

    Posted by: Chris

    Bardaboa If you'd like a good laugh, take a minute and fill out the form on this website promotion for Antarctica beer from Brazil and watch the humorous, gay-themed video that follows, incorporating your name and that of a friend. Here's all you have to do:

    1. Go to this site: http://www.tatuagemdaboa.com.br/
    2. Type your first name on the first line.
    3. Type the name of a "crazy friend" you want to punk on the second line.
    4. If you want to go whole hog, type your email on Line 3 and your friend's email addy on Line 4 (but that's optional).
    5. Click "Visualizar" and watch the video that follows OR if you typed in email addresses, click "Enviar por email" and you and your pal will be sent emails with a link to the video.

    You can get the gist of the joke even in Portuguese, but I've translated it for you on the jump. Be forewarned that my translation spoils the joke if you read it before you see the video.

    All in all it's harmless fun, and I'll admit to laughing out loud.

    Juliana says, "Hey, I have a new tattoo. Want to see it?"
        <shows a rose tattoo on her shoulder with your name>
    Juliana says (presumably to your "crazy friend"): "Aww, don't be like that, silly. I have another one with your name. Want to see it? ... Paulão ('Big Paul'), come over here."
        <shows a big bartender with a tattoo of your friend's name on his ass>
        <bartender blows your friend a kiss>

      LOL—I got a kick out of this.

      Having worked in beer marketing I'm usually role my eyes at these gay-baiting promotional tactics. But this is funny. Not in the scary-dude-you-might-be-a-fag way that some promotions in the US play to, but in a light hearted, hey it's all good, way. The casting helps, if Paulao had been made a fey queen it would have had a different effect.

      It might also have to with the fact that Paulao pushes some buttons for me.
