Cheers



I don't know anything about the transglobal economics of alcohol brands, but I do know that Skol was a really weak tasteless beer my Dad used to drink in the 80s. It may be a surprise for UK readers to know that Skol is the biggest beer brand in Brazil. I think it might be the Stella of the favelas and they're even sponsoring funk balls. Which make this song the 'Cigarettes & Alcohol' of baile funk. Don't worry, its not like Oasis but it does mention a couple of things they like. This is more punk rock than the majority of bands in the UK. There I said it.

Unknown - Montagem Coca Skol (Zshare)

But more importantly, but what happened to the viking man and remind me of his name ?

Hagar, o HorrĂ­vel, in portuguese.
Skol is indeed quite tasteless, all the biggest selling beers in Brazil are like that, but it doesn't really matter, the national obsession is to make beer reach as close to freezing point as possible, so taste doesn't really come through, it's all about feeling refreshed.

Aaah Hagar, thanks Paulo. They should bring him back. Maybe he moved to Brazil.

Bruno, I see what you're saying about the temperature. London needs to learn something from Brazil about keeping it cold bigtime. We got the taste but not the chillin' dammit.

cheers for the comments gents.
