I think the video clip “2012 Rio Body Painting Art in Brazilian Carnival Andrea Martins” is beautiful.
And I left the following comment on the video,
Beautiful without being sexual! Wish I could be there at 2012 Brazilian Carnival!
which I got this reply
@KemptonLam thank you so much for this enormous compliment…this is what I have been struggling for years and years!!! One of the best comments ever received in more than 10 million views…this is what I always fought for, remove this misappropriation of Brazil Carnival. Thank you so much!!

and my respond to that
@belavistario I am glad my comment made you happy. The lady in the video (and how the video is shot) gave me a wonderful sense of beauty, energy, and excitement that I know I will feel in a Brazilian Carnival! Whoever filmed the video (I don’t know if it was you) did a wonderful service to show a wonderful side of Brazil to us! Keep up the good work.
