    As an aside, @mrbig and/or @kuromantis, can either of you tell me what "eu prefería ver o filme do Pelé" is a reference to?

      I didn't catch this line after watching two times, but it is probably a reference to Pelé's well known linguistic quirk of talking about himself in the third person. I'm very excited about this....

      I'm very excited about this. Pelé's soccer Michael Jordan. No one compares to him.

      This doc will be a hit in Brazil.

        Well the line wasn't actually in the trailer, lol. I saw it in the comments and immediately thought he'd said it himself sometime.

          It's a running joke in Brazil, so this may very well be something he never actually said, but rather someone jesting about this Pelé's speech pattern. Or maybe it's nothing :P

            Seems it might have something to do with this, but I can't actually tell what it is 'til I get to my PC as Youtube's blocked it here.

              Oh yeah Chaves/Chespirito is huge in Brazil. That's probably it. Will continue the investigations on WIFI.

              yeah this is definitely a direct quote from Chaves. He's complaining to everyone that he'd rather watch Pelé's film. Pelé actually made a soccer themed movie with the comical troupe Os Trapalhões...

              Edit: it's entirely possible that the entire Pelé reference was created in the Brazilian dub...
