Yes, an excellent and quite humorous tribute to the many mishearings of lyrics (and poetry and such) known as mondegreens. (I couldn't help but snicker at "beef-head"). Sylvia Wright would be proud of this ad.

I can't hear the israelites without thinking of this ad. It's genius.

Meineither! I totally adore this ad. Best use of the Bob Dylan sign-trick ever.

I'm obsessed with this ad. I watch it more than Perle watches the Apoteket ad. :-)

I think it's true! Although I don't squeal with delight like she does. :-)
