I actually think this is less than appropriate...and for whatever reason they chose to mimic "The King's Speech" frame by frame, it still does nothing for me...on the contrary

The story behind the idea is that the actor in the leading role is a famous athlete in Iceland who stutters like King George. However it was not a common knowledge among the public so this commercial was his way to tell the people about his problem in a light way by mimicing the award winning film "The King's Speech". He has received great appreciation from people suffering from similar difficulties and praise from professionals who help young children to deal with stutter.
So this commercial is mostly relevant to those who are familiar with the two actors although we appreciate it being featured in this fine collection of adverts.
Best regards,

Stay hungry. Stay foolish.
