The links didn't come through completely in my post... For the Italian commercial, see "Spot Vivident Blast 2011 : il papà mamma e il figlio marionetta" on YouTube. For the "Family Guy" bit on YouTube: "Actually I`m a broom".

Hey , guess what? I live in Italy and I can guarantee you that this is NOT the Italian version of this commercial (for one thing, please note that it's in English). The Italian version, even if just as loony, is this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v... See, no boobies! BTW, they say it was evidently inspired by a bit from a "Family Guy" episode: "Actually I`m a broom": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v... And the ending is either a Monty Python or, possibly, "Hitchhiker`s Guide to the Galaxy" (I can`t be sure, because I`ve never seen it) reference. In any case, it`s intended to be off-the-wall, surreal nonsense. Disclaimer: This does not mean in any way that I like the ad; I`m just trying to set the story straight... for the sake of Italy`s reputation, ruined enough by Berlusconi!
