    When Brazil hosts the World Cup later this year, "it will be like having the Super Bowl every day for an entire month," according to Laurel Wentz of AD AGE. Eight marketers "are paying Brazil's dominant TV network Globo" a total of $600M for a TV presence around the football games and related coverage. At $75M per sponsor, that is the equivalent "of almost 20 thirty-second Super Bowl spots each for AmBev, Coca-Cola, Banco Itau, Johnson & Johnson, Hyundai, Nestle, wireless business Oi and local retailer Magazine Luiza."
