Apart from delectable meat buffets that can be found at Brazilian steakhouses, the country is also well known for its array of footballing talent (that’s soccer for you Americans), all the way from Pele to the recently retired Ronaldo, and having Neymar take over the mantle as the next big thing. Another thing that you can add to the list of stuff that makes Brazil famous would be LEGO – as the world’s tallest LEGO tower is now in that part of the world, taking around half a million LEGO bricks to build, touching a height of 102 feet and 3 inches. This means it overtook the previous record holder that was in Chile, set last year – looks like South Americans have this obsession with LEGO, right? Taking four days to construct, it is held in place by magic – nay, wire supports so that it can withstand the wind. Check out the video in the extended post for additional context.
