the only Portuguese words you need to know:

cerveza = beer
mulher bonita = beautiful women
 
2001-11-08 12:29:11 PM
So I plugged the guy's name into Google, and got some references to an ad exec with the same name in Brazil. Perhaps this is the guy in the photo, or perhaps it is an unscrupulous south american advertising guy trying to cash in on his resemblance to Mr. Conspiracy. He has already appeared in a commercial for Volkswagen.

But, as we all know, everyone in the advertising business is honest and trustworthy, sort of like a Boy Scout.

Shlabotnik-
Actually it's cerveja = beer
chopp (proncounced show-pee) = draught beer
chopp gelado = cold draught beer

Boobies!

And an annonymus brazilian turned into a celebrity, overnight, after the attacks at the World Trade Center. The face of a trader from Campinas, in the interior of Sao Paulo, turned up in dozens of images, that are circulating through the internet -- the global computer network. In the most famous, he appers on top of the World Trade Center with a plane ready to crash into the tower. Check out in the report by Cristina Maia what the electronic collage has done in the life of this brazilian.

The picture looked like another angle of the attack at the World Trade Center. In truth, a collage made in a computer. The image circulated throughout the internet and the tourist turned into a witness of other tragedies, showing up in pictures of the John Kennedy assassination, of the Titanic, in the movie "Velocidade Maxima"(Portuguese translation), in the movie E.T. etc.

The tourist was found by our report in Campinas, and is the trader Jose Roberto Penteado, 41 years old, a common person who became famous after having his face travel through the world via the web. He never got the top of the twin towers, although he did visit New York.

Due to fear, it took him more than a month to show his whole body. Now he has even given interviews to international publications. "How am I dealing with this? I can't say. It's something new and I wasn't ready for it. I know it made a big mess with my daughter, for example. She started going into sites and seeing me with models and famous celebrities", says Penteado.

All of it due to a prank by friends. "When I opened the picture and saw myself in it, everybody, and there were seven on the room, laughed at the same time", he says. "They made a (deal?) in one of the sites, with me being the Anti-Christ".

Today, he receives 60 e-mails a day, has even given autographs and is ready to debut on the net, for real, in a commercial for an automobile factory.

Now nobody can stop him...

"I dunno, maybe I'll stop myself. That's whats bothering me: until when am I going to put up with this story?", sighs the trader.

[Ok I'm tired so I haven't checked for mistakes, but I think yall can get the gist of it.]
 
2001-11-08 07:59:39 PM
I'm guessing Velocidade Maxima is "Speed" btw.
 
2001-11-08 11:35:33 PM
You are correct, sir.


Ah, another mystery solved. Pass the bong.
