Ambassador Highlights

Last night’s The Ambassador rocked. I eagerly await Harry’s synopsis (assuming he can pull himself together after Daphna’s departure last episode). But just a few observations from yours truly:

 

1. I realize I was harsh on contestant Eitan last time (although I still believe his answer was unbecoming of a prospective “ambassador”). However, last night he was by far the standout contestant. He answered with assuredness and no shortage of charisma. Even contestant Tzvika admitted that Eitan’s the man.

 

2. Speaking of Tzvika, his flirtatious relationship with Yael has only resulted in him having to remove a rather large knife from his back. Predictable? Yes. But it still made me squirm.

 

3. I had to laugh (at least on the inside) when contestant Amir spoke of how he is able to look people “directly in the eye” and “speak to their heart”. He was, of course, constantly looking down at his notes while he practically read this out. Needless to say, the judges were not impressed.

 

4. Highlight of the night: The Mcdonalds “McShwarma” commercial. The advertisement was a parody of the famous Pulp Fiction “Royale” scene between John Travolta’s Jules, and Samuel L. Jackson’s Vincent. The commercial goes something like this*:

Vincent: Do you know what they call a Quarter Pounder in Israel?

 

Jules: What’d they call it?

 

Vincent: A McShwarma!

 

Jules: A McShwarma?

 

Vincent: Yeah.

 

Jules: “I would like a McSharma please.”

 

Vincent: Except they don’t say please in Israel.

Classic.

 

* If anyone has a more accurate transcription of the commerical, or, better yet, footage of the commercial itself, then please send to me.
