Yes, We Créuuu.

Recommended Posts

All the foreigners will not understand this, but it's absolutely hilarious.

"Yes, we créu" is a joke mixing Obama's phrase with one of the most successful carioca funk songs, the créu. The phrase became popular in Brazilian internet (specially on twitter), at the moment Rio's bid won. When you use créu as a verb (please don't do it) it means something like "screw" (in a sexual way), as in "Yes, we screwed all the other cities and won it". Pretty arrogant, but funny too.

I remember that, at the peak of the créu's popularity, Fifa's site had an article in English called "Flamengo créus Botafogo at the Maracanã". It was hilarious.

I hope you all have the chance to do the créu dance in Rio in 2016. It's like an oversexed version of Macarena, as you saw in the video :lol: :lol: I don't think Clinton could get away with this one, though :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hi, everyone. I've been meaning to post here for a long time.

This disturbing video made me do it.

Foreigners should be aware that there was a time - not that long ago - when Cariocas (the natives of Rio de Janeiro) knew how to make music:

Choro (Apanhei-te Cavaquinho, Composer Ernesto Nazareth):

Classical (Bachiana Brasileira n. 2 - Trenzinho Caipira, Composer Heitor Villa-Lobos):

Samba (Conversa de Botequim, Composer: Noel Rosa): hhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JJoNbOFYUoQ

Bossa Nova (Agua de Beber, Composer and performer Antonio Carlos Jobim):

Music to Brazilians is like poetry to Russians. Braz, don't worry, everyone knows this is just one of the types of music of Rio. More popular and less classy than others, of course.

It's funny, créu never fails to cheer me up. It was released at the time I moved to my fraternity in my junior university year, it was like a mandatory item of our Friday's parties. It's all about fun and sex.

How nice to associate your winning of the Olympic Games with a couple of dancing sluts/whores. I don't think this video should be promoted to the international community much. You really want the world to associate Rio 2016 with that?

You are absolutely right. This is embarrassing, demeaning to women in general, and disrespectful - and why would Brazilians need to associate their country MORE with "fun and sex"?... How has that worked, image-wise? Brazilians, and especially Brazilian women, are already seen abroad as perverts and prostitutes.

Instead of grace in victory, vulgarity: that is Brazil in a nutshell. That is not funny at all, it is just poor taste.

By the way, this is almost always an unfair assessment. However, things such as this vulgar phrase and this vulgar video certainly do not help.

Brazilians want to be treated as grown-ups? Then, grow up!

What's more grown-up than sex? :P

Now, seriously, I do not think this kind of dance is demeaning to women, and I think this is an ill-conceived judgement of yours. There's a guy dancing there too, why don't you think it's demeaning to us? Why can we do it and they can't?

You've got to be kidding.

The guy onstage is like some kind of gangsta rapper pimp, showing off "his" hoes.

The whole video is! The song. Everything.

But if this is the way you want to world to view Rio 2016, and Brazilians, by all means, brag about it.

I'm not a 2016 ambassador, and neither are our beloved MC. Créu and the Watermelon woman (yes, that's what she's called :lol: :lol: :lol: can anyone guess why?). The people reading this and watching that hilarious video are not the world, or a significant part of it. If that video caused one laugh I'm already satisfied with it, and, wait, I'm still ROFLMAO.

Only american can make jokes and be sarcatisc about monkeys in Rio's streets???

Let us Brazilians joke in our way.

By the way, hate carioca funk, but I need to admit this is funny.

I'd rather bossa nova and samba (some of most beautiful rhythms World knows).

Wow, there's that arrogance again. Seems to me Brazil - if represented by you and some of your compatriots around here - is a country very immature in the international ways of the Olympics. And that's just for starters. Keep it up, klassy kariokas.
