Video: Roma EuroPride 2011 Commercial – Gladiators, Sweat, Sword Fights and Upset Conservatives

The idea for the animation was inspired by archeological graffiti found  in the Ludus Mugnus (the school of roman gladiators).

Local right wing politicians have declared the ad “unconstitutional”. (But it’s okay for the Italian Prime Minister to be involved in orgies)

Roma EuroPride 2011 takes place on June 11. BYOS (Bring Your Own Sword)
