In an effort to make this blog more real life than touristic in nature, I believe it a good idea to poke fun at certain aspects of the local culture. Call it “keeping it real”, if you will.
With the recent inauguration of Recife’s newest shopping mall, RioMar, a few people on the internet caught wind of some videos of the opening day and got creative with them. Below is one such video which, at one point, shows people being trampled on the escalator in order to feed their need to consume (this happens in the US too, principally during what is known as ‘Black Friday’, after Thanksgiving). The video reminded me of a clip from the film They Live, which I’ll post a link to below also.
