Quico says: Well, here’s the seriously disturbing audio of part of that Rosales town hall meeting.
Rosales is, um, not a natural speaker. But it’s Globo’s comically inept attempt to make him seem less boring by setting his speech to some shlocky Hollywood track that really grabs your attention.
There’s something really cringe-worthy about this kind of ham-fisted propagandizing. Whoever set this thing to the music must have watched a couple too many episodes of the West Wing and figured, “hell, that music will make anybody sound inspiring.” Set over Rosales, it’s only ludicrous.
