As I have not been opening these things, I did not see this link until it came up from Marcia.  I'm glad you pointed to it.
I think Marcia is too kind.  It is a hateful video.
But perhaps is useful to remember that Italian is the language of Dante.  It is as beautiful as that implies and does not sound like this embarassing parody.  And to recall Eliot, he saw Dante's and Daniel's "sweet new style" as a source of influence.
But it is almost beyond any point to point out what is wrong with this.

CR, do you really think it clever to make fun of people's accents?  Smart and deep play in language is another thing entirely.
