That was pretty well done.

There was spaghetti in Italy a few centuries before Marco Polo, btw.

What's more interesting is how pasta was cooked during the Renaissance and just before: they`d cook it for an hour and add lots of spices and a sprinkle of sugar over the top. Pretty disgusting.

Actually pizza was first created by the Persians in modern day Iran around 500 B.C.. Usually created by moving armies who would bake bread with cheese on their shields. They usually added dates as a topping. This practice reached the Greeks who made what they called "plakountos." From there it slowly migrated to Naples, they couldn't seem to eat anything without tomato sauce and called it pizza meaning "a point."

While this particular video is a parody, it's funny primarily because it`s only slightly exaggerated; some Korean "historians" (and conspiracy theorists) claim a Korean origin for all sorts of things, including all language, the Japanese civilization, possibly the Andean (Incan) civilizations, that they once had an empire stretching to Iran & Iraq; plus technological innovations like iron ore processing, rice cultivation, and pottery. So, only slightly more ridiculous than the "truth".
