…but imagine my outrage that Franco Cozzo doesn’t deserve his own proper Wikipedia entry!
I originally thought of him because of an article about anger in America over non-English language ads which made me want to hear “Comprate da Franco Cozzo” and “Megalo megalo megalo” again.
Maybe there is hope for Australia yet – I might have been too young to notice any fuss but his ads, in Greek, Italian and English, were cult classics rather than an outrage. There’s a video on YouTube where someone’s spotted him in a car and asked him to say the lines from his ad, but even better – here’s the original Franco Cozzo ad.
