Is it real? No. But that's not the point. There is more than one parody on Youtube about "Geico Guidos" and they are all pretty much the same. An Italian (real or fake) is loud, flamboyant and violent. Of course, pasta is involved. Now, I do understand what a parody is and I also understand what Anti-Italianism is. These videos happen to be both. Replace the "fake Italian" with a guy pretending to be Black (in black face). Have a real black man sit next to him, while the actor eats watermelon and chicken and talks in ebonics. Is that a parody or is it thinly veiled racism? .
