Spotted in Brazil: Xuxa, Drinks

Xuxa (above, left) is best known as the children’s show performer in Brazil. Generations of South American children grew up watching her shows and listening to her records, though she never really did well in North America. Unlike most children’s show hosts, she posed for Playboy in 1982, dated Pele and Ayrton Senna, the F-1 racer, and allegedly had sex with a kid in a movie. She is everywhere in Brazil and is worth over a quarter of a billion dollars. She was spotted in Brazil hawking beverages both healthy and non-, knowingly and unknowingly:

From a coconut water1 street stand:

Translation: “Fabricated by Jesus / Produced by nature / Approved by world medicine / And even Xuxa drinks it

From a Bob’s Burgers, Brazil’s No. 2 burger joint after McDonald’s:

So yeah, Xuxa is pretty tight.
