#8. The Brazilian Carnival Holocaust Float
During Carnival, local dance schools build extravagant themed floats, each equipped with its own dancers, lights, and soundtracks (think the Fourth of July mixed with porn). And the only thing that could ruin Carnival would be a giant pile of emaciated dead bodies mixed with Hitler — which is exactly how Unidos do Viradouro samba school decorated their float in 2008.
After human rights groups protested the wheeled pile of corpses, the float’s artistic director made the tough decision to not have nubile dancers shimmying atop a mountain of genocide victims.
