With so much of Brazil’s national pride riding on this upcoming 2014 FIFA World Cup, Confederação Brasileira de Futebol, the governing body for soccer in Brazil, commissioned twins Otavio and Gustavo Pandolfo to refurbish the exterior of its team jet recently. Best known by their norm de graffiti of Os Gemeos, the duo had to re-formulate their paint so it would adhere to the smooth metallic surface. Next, they and several team aircraft engineers had to ensure the paint is UVA/UVB resistant along with other adjustments before completing the design.

In all, it took the team about a week’s time to complete the transformation. Using a hanger at Gol Airport in Belo Horizonte and  some 1200 cans of spray paint, Os Gemeos decorated the Boeing 737 fuselage, vertical stabilizer, and jet engine nacelles with whimsical caricatures. Each uniquely different in facial expression, hairstyle, even skin tone, all to represent the melting pot nature of Brazilian culture.

With its hard-to-miss livery, the Os Gemeos-painted Boeing 737 will begin ferrying Team Brazil to the 12 host cities across the country starting next month.
