It was a largely uneventful appearance for TV celebrity Luciano Huck on Brazil’s most-watched Sunday evening show -- until he started talking about politics. That’s when many viewers at home shifted in their seats, inching toward their screens.
Huck then proceeded to deliver a passionate discourse on the need to fix a broken political class, introducing ethics and altruism while mobilizing a new generation. Finally, the punchline: "If I failed to try to improve things, I’d be a coward," Huck said with his wife, Angelica, standing at his side. "Whatever destiny and God want of me, I’ll go along with."
