    Check out this ridiculous TV commercial for a 1971 Mustang.

    There’s no way an automaker would run this kind of an advertisement today. The reasons are many, starting with the bad acting and flimsy accent, which sounds like a hybrid cross between Italian and French. Then there’s the fact people don’t buy a Mustang to feel like they’re driving some stylish Italian sportscar.

    Not sure how old you are but that commercial is very typical for the time. And Sid Caesar was a gifted comedian so I'm quite sure the campiness was intentional.
