It's not often that you get to laugh at a crazy and foul mouthed Italian but the ever shouty Enzo Calzaghe has given us several opportunities to do so over the last year or so with "interesting" adverts for products ranging from natural supplements, to energy drinks to even a high street bookie. Yes, Enzo is an advertising genius (well something like that) as you'll see in the videos below.

In the past on this site we've seen Ali advertising pest control though one thing we didn't expect to see was referee Tony Weeks (and Steve Cunningham and BJ Flores) advertising Audi. That however is exactly what has happened in the last week or so.

The advert, featuring the three men mentioned above sees Flores and Cunningham competing in a mock bout before Cunningham comes out on top. Despite the fact it's referee Weeks that takes centre stage with the advert focusing on him and the power the referee has.

The advert it's self, for Audi's new RS 6 Avant, plays on the idea of power not always being in the most obvious place and is already playing on TV with many really complementing it's idea and the fact they didn't use actors in it. Well done Audi I guess!

It's never every day you heart Muhammad Ali, "The Greatest", admit that he needs help with things. Beck in the 1970's however he openly admitting he need help.

Ali was telling us all that whilst he was able to cope with anything on 2 legs he wasn't as good with things that had 6 legs and instead he needed the help of "d-CON" to rid him of roaches (no, not Freddie!).

Ali not only did photograph style adverts (see the picture) but also featured in television adverts for the brand (see below thanks to commercialclassic).

Oddly whilst Big George and his grills are widely remembered not many really recall Ali's roach killing traps and sprays. Despite the forgotten link D-con do continue to market traps, though they've turned their deadly attention to mice. I assume they found out that roaches are indestructible (a bit like Ali's chin).

Note-there were at least 2 Ali adverts for "D-Con". The one below is for the spray whilst the other one is for the traps (that you can see in the picture above)
