Israeli Parody Ad for Sprite Soft Drink Takes Asia by Storm

An Israeli TV commercial for the soft drink Sprite has gone viral, mainly in Asia.  Millions of viewers in China and other Asian countries have gone wild over the ad, which pokes fun at an unnamed dictator and his followers.

Here's a report about the ad and the attention it has received, from a TV news show on NTD (New Tang Dynasty) Television, a Chinese television station based in New York.

The news report shows excerpts from the ad, but we thought you'd like to see the 46 second commercial in its entirety, so we're including it below the news video.
