Prior to a soccer game between Argentina and Brazil, a condom company from Argentina ran an ad to inform Brazilians what awaited them at the upcoming match. But Brazil won, and the Brazilian Football Organization ran their own ad in response.

Those Argentinians need to pay more attention to Pele.

four years ago (Argentinian soccer team) Boca Juniors flew to Japan to play the Intercontinental Cup final against a European team, winner of the european Champions League.

the River Plate supporters, enemies of Boca, bought full-page ads in the Argentinian press with a fun drawing of the Boca jet exploding en route to Japan.

Now, that's what I call graphics. Good post.

As an Argentina supporter, however, I deplore the backstory.

Need I point out that regardless of Argentina's potency (or lack thereof), Brasil remains a "bottom"?

dontoine, I think the latter image is more like a defiant mooning bottom

Yeah, uhm I posted that here back in the day, and I could've sworn that I've seen a link (not to my page) posted somewhere else in the blue in the past. Anyway, that set of images has been around, every two years it appears on a new blog or forum. Ever notice that the re-appearance of stuff on the net is every two years? I find it interesting, that two year thing.

The best part is the comment from the guy who thought he saw something dirty in the first picture. Is anyone really that thick?

Just out of curiosity, How do you get from 2002 to 2007 in two-year steps?

Perhaps it's heterocentric of me, but I'd assumed the B was a vulva, not a backside.

So many people just don't understand the scope of the fun you can have with typography.

In general, it's two years, though these reappared in 2006, so that was a four year jump, they might (probably, memory isn't so good) have been doing the rounds in 2004 as well but I either never spotted it or made a note of it.

But Butt Brazil won?

Here's a clever Brazilian ad for some lubricating gel to go with that.

So the rule of thumb, as I understand it now, is that these things reappear at least once every two years, sometimes more frequently, except possibly in instances where it may be four years between appearances.

I don't get it.

how would you translate "a haut pouvoir"? with high capacity? my high school french is rusty.
posted by phaedon at 3:26 PM on February 27, 2007


I think it is even funnier because Brazil spelled its own name wrong. N00bs.
posted by dios at 3:27 PM on February 27, 2007


"With high capacity" -- no, that would seem to refer to the girl, not the lubricant.
posted by Wolfdog at 3:37 PM on February 27, 2007


"really strong". "Pouvoir" is strength or ability, not capacity.

I thought the second picture was of some tits and then Argentina/dick going limp, not a retread of the butt.

Oh, tits. Maybe you're right, Falconetti.

Thanks, fandango_matt, this is funny stuff.
