Even heroes have heroes of their own. Brazilian superstar Pelé opened up about his idol — Dondinho, his father — on The Daily Show last night.
Pelé reflected on the first time he saw his father cry, back in 1950.
"[I saw my father crying], and I asked him, ‘Why are you crying?’
'Brazil lost the World Cup.'
'I'm going to win one World Cup for you, don't worry.'”
Yeah, he fulfilled that promise (and then some).
And from Jon Stewart’s reaction to the extraordinary gift the Brazilian legend gave him, it’s safe to say Pelé is one of his idols:
We feel you, Jon.
