    The song is deliberately meant to sound to its intended Italian audience, like English spoken with an American accent.[SUP]

    [/SUP]Italians trying to sound like Americans!


    The song was produced with the purpose of exposing Italian pop artists and musicians who were deceiving the public, pretending to speak/understand english lyrics and plagiarizing American and English songs, so this was a satirical parody to underscore the fact that those artists and musicians were not fluent in any form of English at all, and the Italian public would accept and popularize any song sounding like English, whether or not it was accurate.
    Celentano's intention with the song was to explore communications barriers. "Ever since I started singing, I was very influenced by American music and everything Americans did. So at a certain point, because I like American slang — which, for a singer, is much easier to sing than Italian — I thought that I would write a song which would only have as its theme the inability to communicate. And to do this, I had to write a song where the lyrics didn't mean anything."

    Ugh. I can't believe they used that face for their marketing campaign.

    I've having all sorts of half-memories about celebrities, and Orville Redenbacher dying of syphillis just sounded right in my head. Apparently he didn't, but he did suffer a massive heart attack in his hot tub and drown.

    No word on whether he was clothed or flanked by popcorn groupies.
