Yeah, clever and lively. Getting a good vibe from this parade for once. As you say, they managed to invoke Carneval and put a stamp on the parade.

"Ads"? What are "ads"?

Ads (n) (colloquial): Advertisements. Commercials. Sponsor messages. Annoying breaks to coverage.

Sorry flamboyant gentlemen - but PHWOAR!!!!!

just catching up on the past posts - no need to be sorry pups. I think there's an inner bit of Sappho beneath the flamboyance. I can appreciate the female form.
