One of the funniest commercials I have ever seen was the British guy, hotel receptionist, who offers to 'knock her up" to the American woman meaning he would give her a wake up call.
I have no idea what that commercial was about, I just remember the punch line. They had another telling of Nixon "high -fiving a high ranking official from another country on a state visit. There that was equal to our "shooting the bird" here,lol!
