Apparently, Brazil is not only coffee, football, samba and carnival.

We know that, among the stereotypes that run around, there is the myth of “Brazilian woman.” People abroad say that Brazilian woman are one of the most beautiful in the world. I do not know if this is true, but one thing is true: beauty care is very present in our culture. Makeup, nail varnish, hair done, jewelry, beauty products: we love them all. It is not an imposition! It’s a real pleasure.

In 2011, the famous brand of sandals “Havaianas” produced a TV commercial which made a joke with that stereotype. Spoken in French with Portuguese subtitles, the video was a hit on Brazilian television. It is the story of a french couple planning their honeymoon.

Guess where they are planing to go to?
