This Commercial is BRILLIANT
talians are the best at 1 thing for sure "TRAGEDY"
It speaks to Italian pride in food music....and theatre (and of course the church is always in the background..."all with God's blessing"
Here is what is implicit in this great comercial:
Italians take alot of pride in the food they create and cook....and there belief is ...No one can do it better....especially not
a large corporation. ( An insult to their culinary sensibilities)
The church is tied into everything and certainly into their culinary skills....its as if they (the Italians) were ordained by God....(thus the church plays a large role )
Any threat to this culinary superiority is looked upon with disdain and mockery (the guy wipes his hands after touching the jar...they mockingly laugh at the product....Bears on the label.....They do have a sense of humour.....I'll give them that (mockingly)
The whole time in the background is playing 1 of the most famous Operatic Arias in history: (Italian of course
Vesti la giubba" is sung at the conclusion of the first act, when Canio discovers his wife's infidelity, but must nevertheless prepare for his performance as Pagliaccio the clown because "the show must go on".
The aria is often regarded as one of the most moving in the operatic repertoire of the time. The pain of Canio is portrayed in the aria and exemplifies the entire notion of the "tragic clown": smiling on the outside but crying on the inside
at your broken love!
Laugh at the grief that poisons your heart!
The store clerk is even dressed for the role. (Looks like one of the Mario Brothers)
Vesti la giubba e la faccia infarina. ----- Put on your costume and powder your face.
It also exhibits that Italy is patriarchal society with the typical stereotypes
The NONA....the elderly grandmother (or mother) we have to start with her she's the expert
The church clergy....they will be the ones that will tell you where the church i.e. GOD stands
To claim you make a hazelnut spread better than the Italians (blasphemy)
The mobsters (tough guys) The leather jacket guys the guys that can afford to sit around and
play cards all day The Anthony Quin good look guy who says so much with just a --look--
The hand gestures and facial expressions came straight out of my childhood
The highlight of this commercial for me was the Italian tough guys.
The look by the older Italian Silver haired fox.....was pure genius ....(Whats wrong with this guy....??)
This song is perfect for my WIRE experience.(on most days)
