Rio landmark's one claim to fame is being featured in a Snoop Dogg Video!

Who remembers this little diddy?! Beautiful- Snoop Dogg & Pharrell - twas a catchy tune! I especially like the intro. when Snoop is talking on the phone. Did ya know we are staying about 2 minutes away from these renowned tiled steps they sit on in the video? These are called 'Escaleras de Selaron', and they are just that - The set of steps by an eccentric Chilean artist by the name of Selaron, who has been painting and tiling the stairs as his life's art project for the past 20 years. See his mug below. Who wouldn't give for a moustache like that!
