Grand Theft Demo

Speaking of the repurposing of technology-associated imagery by the Italian left, the reliance on the packaging of the best-selling video game Grand Theft Auto, for this demo advert, is abundantly clear.

Take special note of the use of English in the poster. It makes an enormous amount of sense given the intense degree of politicization accorded immigration by the Berlusconi government.

Besides, every time I’ve ordered myself a kebab, gone out for Eritrean food, or ordered the ever-ubiquitous Milanese delicacy, sushi, I’ve found English to be far more commonly employed than Italian.
