In the Spirit of Zenga Zenga

Man, this made me smile.

This Israeli ad for a fast internet provider contains exactly the combination of humor, cheekiness, and sweet, persistent optimism that characterizes so many Israelis, even at the worst of times. A young, post-Army Israeli is strolling the streets of a Muslim city in what looks like Iran, and…well, watch the ad.

The tag-line at the end translates to “In life this is still impossible, but on the internet, connections like this are made every day.”

(If you’re wondering where the cheekiness comes in, it’s on the guy’s T-shirt. The message translates to “Combat units are awesome, dude.”)
