Specialized Bettini commercial

I like the Specialized Bettini commercial until the very end where he speaks English. Italian langague is a beautiful sounding langague but why kill it with "I yam sspecializzed" at the end?? Could have kept the entire commercial in Italian. Is it just me??

This might be a better place to lodge your complaint.

I suppose they could have gone with "Sono Specializzato". But Specializzato is not the name of the company.

I love that commercial.

He should instead say:

"I am AMGEN".

Because, of course, that makes perfect sense.

I like the Special-Ed commercials, but the best is the SRAM commercial. Very well produced and edited.

Dude,

Bettinni is one of the biggest opponents of the increased testing requirements.

No, no. It's "speckle-eyed."

It's not just you. I feel the same way. Cool commercial regardless.
