Couldn’t hold a note in a bucket is closer to the truth. The situation:
- Last night was the wrap up to Brazil’s carnaval
- The hottest song in South America right now is “Ai se eu te pego” (translation “I’m going to catch you), which you hear everywhere, not just in Brazil.
- Neymar, new wunderkind of Brazil footy (eg scorer of world’s best goal last year) is one of the guests of honour at the carnaval bash. That’s him in the green up there.
- He’s invited by the band to sing the song.
Well, I’m glad he has an alternate career lined up, cos pro-Karaoke just isn’t in the cards here.
