This week, Brian finally touches down in Rio De Janeiro to experience the first part of his first-ever Carnival. There was music, costumes, fireworks, top-notch food, private planes, famous DJs (hi, Diplo!) and of course, the main event — the epic, colorful, fantastic, one-of-a-kind Sambadrome parade. Staying up until 6am has never been so worth it — and this was only night one.

Watch the party (and how we survived) below:
