The rolezinho was organised by a group of youngsters on Facebook to take a little stroll around the mall. Somehow, it turned into a huge gathering where close to 6, young Brazilians showed up at the mall creating fear among the merchants and customers. There were some accounts of robbery during the day, but overall it was more the anxiety generated by the large numbers of loud adolescents created than any actual criminal activity.

The media coverage of the Itaquera event inspired several other rolezinhos in various shopping malls. The events that followed were not uniform in character, some had a political agenda expressing concerns about social issues, others were simply a gathering where young people met to stroll around and meet girls. Brazil is known for its recent obsession with shopping malls.

Malls are built in cities with a population of more thanwith the largest number of shopping centres concentrated in Sao Paulo. The mall comes to occupy a symbolic space in Brazil, both highlighting the country's obsession with consumption as well as calling attention to the security crisis that is thought to exhibit the rage of the Brazilian underclasses. Due to high crime rates largely attributable to social inequalities, malls have become a safe haven of consumption.

The concept of street shopping is virtually non-existent for the elite classes who live in constant fear of being victims of assaults or kidnappings.

Besides a few streets in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, the upper and upper middle classes almost exclusively shop in indoor malls where they are comforted by the presence of security guards and surveillance cameras. These malls function as relatively secure zones for the consumptive proclivities of society, providing everything under one roof, shopping, entertainment and amenities such as post offices, banks and supermarkets.

The initial series of rolezinhos in Sao Paulo's malls were not political in character, but when the management in some malls started denying entrance to visitors due to concerns associated with such large groups, they provoked a hostile reaction that quickly produced an intense political debate. Skin colour, age, appearance and clothing played a big role in who got in and who was left out.

The most symbolic event took place at JK Iguatemi, an ultra luxury mall in Sao Paulo which shut down early on a Saturday to avoid an anticipated visit by the rolezinho youth. The closure was widely interpreted in the media as an evidence of the segregation of Brazilian society and the fear among the rich of the underclasses. Those who participated in rolezinhos were characterised by a stylised appearance associated with the musical genre " ostentation funk " Po.

The majority of ostentation funk followers are young people from poor and lower middle classes who openly aspire to a materialistic lifestyle but in a manner that is almost a parody of the way the wealthy live in Brazil. The lyrics of ostentation funk are about flaunting luxury objects, driving around in expensive cars, wearing clothes that prominently display the brand names.

Greg tries to impress Jack, but his efforts fail. Greg becomes even more uncomfortable after he receives an impromptu lie detector test from Jack and later learns from Pam that her father is a retired CIA counterintelligence officer.

Despite efforts to impress the family, Greg's inadvertent actions make him an easy target for ridicule and anger: He accidentally gives Pam's sister a black eye during a water volleyball mishap; uses a malfunctioning toilet that floods the Byrnes' back yard with sewage; sets the wedding altar on fire and inadvertently leads Jack to think he is a marijuana user.
