The obligatory Ahmadinejad in an Israeli TV commercial post

Cable operator YES is using a likeness of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in its latest advertising campaign. Let's go to the videotape (it's in Hebrew, but hang in there).

And for the Hebrew challenged, read this and click replay:
It starts out with an actor playing the Iranian Prez (my one complaint: the actor’s too appealing; the real Ahmadinejad reminds me of a scruffy Teheran bus collector) ranting away, declaring” The uranium is in our hands. And after Monday it will be good-bye to Israel.”

Suddenly, his audience of robed Ayatollahs and Hojatollahs and chador-clad women begin shouting at him: “What are you talking about?” yells one robed and turbaned cleric. “It’s the last episode of Danny Hollywood on Monday night.”

The commercial for Yes TV then morphs into a full-on Busby Berkley musical, with Revolutionary Guards line dancing with their AK-47s, and thousands marching in the streets calling on Ahmadinejad to at least delay the annihilation of Israel until after the final show in the TV series.
In fact, read the whole thing. The commercial has not gone unnoticed in Tehran either.

Wow - that's nuts. Bad taste and funny at once.

Straight out of the Book Of Esther! The depictions of the first Persian anti-Semite, Haman are dead on funny with black gallows humor. Jews get relief by making fun of their enemies! Undoubtedly, Ahmedinejad and the mullahs in Iran aren't laughing now.
