My next aria’s a macchiato

Andrea Bocelli is the star of Illy’s new campaign, launching today in San Francisco.

Bocelli. Illy. Subliminal advertising.

Mad Men?

Now find an opera singer who rhymes with Stabucks.

    Didn’t we have « Latte Lehmann » already ?

  • Caravaggio says:

    Thought it was an ad for cheese.

  • Ms.Melody says:

    You are being generous and complimentary even referring to him as an “Opera singer”

    • Petros Linardos says:

      Of course Mr. Bocelli is not an opera singer, but maybe Mr. Lebrecht meant that Starbucks would make a more effective ad than Illy finding one.

  • Ms.Melody says:

    Is Gunter Groissbock close enough?

  • Bruce says:

    I thought the correspondence was: 2nd-rate but popular Italian tenor, selling 2nd-rate but popular Italian coffee.

    Is there an American singer whose quality and ubiquity matches that of Starbucks? Hmmm…

  • Dave says:

    That’ll be a flat white then.

  • Edo says:

    Pity that ” Bocelli does not rhyme with “Illy”…

  • cym says:

    Let’s not forget « Lauritz Melior », the great Wagnerian tenor

  • cym says:

    Allergic to milk, we have « Elisabeth Schwartzkoffee » …
