Because laughing at guys with accents
is always funny.

This latest spot in the series of low-key Ogilvy & Mather spots focuses yet again on hardcore fandom around NYC, but anchoring that Motown sound and the reason you like them so much? Mandeep & Sharvarish, aka, store owners with accents! C’mon, don’t lie. Hilarity ensues, always. Nevermind that Lettermen created this bit 15 years ago with Mujibur Rahman and Sirajul Islam from Bangladesh—it’s okay, we’ll make these new guys from India, totally different—laughing at the non-English speaking among us is advertising’s God-given right. Why? Because it never goes out of style. Dig the Indian music cues too! Collect the whole series, including Charades, Lesson Learned and Keith Hernandez Day.
