Leo Pari in theme-tune for Beppe Grillo’s Vblog

Beppe Grillo is an established comedian who has been satirising the Italian political establishment for well over 20 years. You’d be hard pushed to find an Italian who hasn’t heard of him.

Back in 2006 our very own Leo Pari sampled Beppe Grillo’s voice to use it in a humorous bootleg he was composing. The tune was an overnight internet success and before long it had reached the ears of Beppe Grillo himself. Instead of reacting indignantly and threatening with copyright legal action, the comedian decided he thought the track was hilarious and that what he wanted it to be the theme tune to his new v blog “Pillola Rossa” and consequently as the songtrack to his DVD out on general release.

You have but to type the words “Pillola Rossa” onto youtube and you’ll see that the videos have hundreds of thousands of hits. So here it is for your very own enjoyment here on the BeatPick blog! Unfortunately the video is Italian so for those of you who cannot exactly understand Italian this might be a bit problematic. I am perfectly happy to explain what it means if you so desire, otherwise maybe it can be an inspiration for you to pop down to your local language school and sign up to that Italian class you’ve been putting off for ages!

Enjoy…..
