    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.

    Because the slogan is "I am Specialized".

    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.

    Winning isn't everything, but wanting to is.

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

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

    It's italianish, insanely fast is not an directly translatable, only comes out as "stupid fast".
