Transcription

  • Just touched down in Rio, me and Ciara.
  • The richness of this culture is amazing.
  • We're, like, up in a cloud.
  • I've never been nervous to throw a football.
  • I'm actually nervous in front of Jesus.
  • Just threw a touchdown to Ciara.
  • The fans are lit.
  • MVP!
  • Sports, music, cultures and food.
  • We're gonna have a blast. Let's go.
  • The fan love on day one was absolutely amazing.
  • We're just signing them all.
  • And I thought it was gonna be, you know, maybe 100, 200 people.
  • I mean, that place was rocking.
  • They were doing their soccer chants.
  • Wilson! Wilson!
  • Wilson! Wilson!
  • They were really obviously loving Ciara, too, as well.
  • The best fans in the world, right here in Brazil.
  • One of my fans had "Ciara" tatted on their chest.
  • One of Russ' fans had the number 12 on the back of their calves.
  • He wants you to sign his leg 'cause he's gonna make it a tattoo.
  • You're gonna make your leg a tattoo?
  • Yeah. Every Super Bowl, I'll make a tattoo.
  • -Let's go! Okay. -I promise that.
  • All right, get 'em ready, then. Get 'em ready.
  • It's the first time that I've ever signed somebody's...
  • You know, my own signature, he stencils it in the next morning.
  • -Which is crazy. -Unreal.
  • Not bad for coming from Richmond, Virginia and Decatur, Georgia.
  • Brazil, we love you.
  • Christ the Redeemer really honestly gave us chills.
  • I mean, I think to be up there and, you know,
  • overlooking the whole entire city, the whole entire country, really,
  • -probably our highlight. -One for the books in life.
  • Not just this trip, but in life.
  • One of the coolest moments.
  • And then there was this really cool feeling
  • when you were sitting there right in front of it.
  • You could feel a special energy.
  • To actually be in the presence of this statue is just incredible.
  • We set out on a mission to just go around the world
  • and experience different places, different people.
  • For us, in our faith, there's a God somewhere that's...
  • You know, Jesus is looking over us, and here in Rio,
  • there's a statue that resembles that.
  • We just say, "Thank you."
  • Thank you for allowing us to be right here
  • on the top of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil.
  • We just praise you for what you've done.
  • We praise you for bringing us together.
  • You know, Ciara and I were talking about being able
  • to find different ways to connect with the world.
  • Actually, I think you brought up, C, was to be able to throw the ball
  • from one person to the other.
  • We've done it on the Great Wall of China,
  • and we did something very similar in London.
  • We've done some cool stuff in Africa,
  • passing the ball around with young kids.
  • There's something powerful about the unity that you get
  • from seeing the ball being passed around.
  • Being at the top of the Christ the Redeemer,
  • I said, "You know what? Hey, C, how about you catch this one?" So...
  • I've never been nervous to throw a football before
  • but I'm actually nervous in front of Jesus.
  • Nice!
  • The richness of this culture is amazing.
  • It's like, I don't really have the best words to describe it,
  • but I'm really proud and grateful for this moment.
  • I had the opportunity to meet one of the greatest surfers in the world
  • and he's from Brazil, Gabriel Medina.
  • I figured I might as well see the best surfer in the world.
  • Yeah. Yeah, yeah.
  • A young, really athletic superstar.
  • Just to spend time with him on the beach,
  • it was fun. Just to be able to talk about his workouts versus mine,
  • and how we do things, and his mentality.
  • Surfers do a lot of core.
  • -Core work? -Yeah, core work.
  • And yeah, of course, you got some weights and stuff.
  • But more, like, here.
  • I love trying to meet people who are successful.
  • Just because you always can learn something.
  • If you can learn one little thing...
  • What's, like, the biggest wave you've ever surfed?
  • -I think in Hawaii, yeah. -Yeah?
  • Like, how big? How many feet do you think?
  • -Like 12 to 14... -Twelve to 14, yeah.
  • I said, "Medina, keep catching the waves, homie."
  • Yeah, thank you.
  • From Russell Wilson and the Super Bowl champs.
  • -There you go. -Sick, thank you.
  • -For sure, bro. -Yeah, thank you.
  • I think I might have a good friend for a long time. He's a cool guy.
  • -Are you going to Carnival? -Yes.
  • Yeah, I'm going there, too.
  • -Carnival was a party. -Carnival...
  • We had an absolute blast.
  • Carnival is amazing!
  • Like, I don't even have words to describe what I saw.
  • What did I just see? What was that?
  • The costumes.
  • The music.
  • The dancing.
  • The passion.
  • The love.
  • You can't put it into words.
  • It's just the feeling that you get when you're there.
  • All of the floats passing by, the details...
  • This is, like, the craziest party I've ever seen.
  • It must be like the Super Bowl times 100,
  • how many people are out here.
  • As a performer... My mind was running
  • so many different ways when I was watching the show.
  • Like, I'm thinking about Carnival next year already.
  • Like, that's how exciting it was.
  • I was able to go practice on the beach.
  • So we've been training and everything else.
  • I'm at work here today.
  • No matter where you go, you gotta work.
  • It's a lifestyle. It's a decision.
  • Here we go, drive, drive, drive.
  • We figured, "You know what? Let's go find a team who's practicing."
  • And one of the teams that was practicing on the beach
  • was the Flamengo Imperadores.
  • They're, I don't know, probably 20 to 25 years old
  • and they were practicing everyday trying to learn the game of football.
  • There's a few guys out there that were making plays.
  • QB's gone. He got speed, man.
  • We got 'em. We got 'em!
  • Touchdown!
  • Seeing these guys practicing on a Saturday,
  • really cool to see and experience and to be a part of.
  • We believe in American football in Brazil.
  • I think the game's gonna spread really fast here.
  • When you see a guy like him talk to us like this,
  • it pushes us to keep moving forward.
  • To see how much you guys have made a difference for the game of football,
  • it's gonna be a global sport because of you guys.
  • What I've always said is that one moment in life,
  • one situation, whatever it is, can't define your life.
  • Not everybody's gonna make it, right?
  • You know, not everybody's gonna play in the NFL.
  • I think that ultimately, you know,
  • it's about how you lead, as men.
  • One, two, three.
  • I was able to come out on the beach
  • and spreading the game of football
  • all around the world, here in Brazil.
  • A couple years from now, there's gonna be some superstar
  • that's gonna be from Brazil that's gonna be playing in the NFL.
  • Nice. Nice, guys.
  • Something that I'm really passionate about
  • is to teach kids around the world
  • this amazing game in America called football.
  • We got to surprise these kids in this low-income community
  • where kids don't have much.
  • It was really cool to see both the guys and the girls there.
  • I was a tomboy growing up, and I was a girl that played flag football, too.
  • That's one of the coolest things about being able to travel.
  • It really humbles you and allows you to see people all have dreams.
  • That was a really cool experience, just to see that and surprise them.
  • They got no idea. And now they know.
  • What's up?
  • What's up?
  • What's up, brother?
  • What's up?
  • What's up, y'all?
  • They were genuinely excited.
  • And just super grateful.
  • You're not limited by where you come from,
  • so we've always had that kind of attitude,
  • and to remind those kids
  • that they already were very ambitious, and they already had big goals.
  • But we wanted to put that tap on their back and say,
  • "Keep on pushing, because your dreams will be possible."
  • Ciara.
  • Just to see the joy in their faces was incredible.
  • So touching, I had to hold back my tears.
  • I'm emotional always, too.
  • So we have a little surprise for you guys.
  • I surprised you, Ciara surprised you.
  • But we also have some equipment for you guys, too.
  • We got new helmets.
  • New helmets for you guys.
  • It was cool seeing the girl run a post route, too.
  • He was explaining to her, "Yeah, go deep,"
  • and she didn't understand the English.
  • Post route. Post route.
  • You could tell they haven't run through all the plays.
  • She's like, "Got it," and literally, like, takes off.
  • There it is.
  • That was pretty cool.
  • -She was representing for us ladies. -Yeah.
  • So good.
  • Everything about this whole trip has been very special.
  • It's been an incredible cultural experience.
  • To be able to expand the game of football in Brazil,
  • in China, in Europe. That's one of my major goals.
  • We're always all about, you know, making sure that we are spreading love
  • and using our platforms to be able to do that.
  • But it's the coolest thing
  • when you get that love in return on the other side, right?
  • Brazil, Brazil!
  • Brazil, you have been good to us.
  • Yeah, you have been very, very good to us.
  • I love the passion, the pride.
  • Coming to Carnival for the first time,
  • it's a one-of-a-kind party, it's a one-of-a-kind tradition.
  • We gotta come back.
