Full script of the ad IN ENGLISH, REGARDLESS OF THE ORIGINAL LANGUAGE OF THE AD
SFX: Music ANN: Latin American Oddities. You are in a mystical realm. You go to a bookstore and discover that there are UFO sightings in the Bolivian highlands. After landing in La Paz, you conclude two things: that the altitude made Bolivia a very special place, and that the effects of the altitude stimulate neurons as a result of the lack of oxygen to the brain. Isolated, lonely and landlocked, natives interbred with whatever people came about. The result: Euroboliviass, Afroboliviass, Asian-Boliviass, Arab-Boliviass and everything that starts with bolivi and ends with ass, even if it doesn’t sound right. There are also Mennonites that interbred with the Bolivi but not with the 'asses'... for obvious reasons. Within the eccentricity of such a cultured and elevated Bolivian society, we can experience 37 official languages, coca tea and the only invincible naval fleet in the world... anchored in Lake Titicaca, 3,800 metres above sea level. So now you know,. If you decide to invade Bolivia you should be courteous and ask for permission to take your navy all the way to the lake. Under these circumstances we can assure that, even if you don’t chew the coca leaves when you visit Bolivia, it’s very possible that you... see extraterrestrials. If our Latin American reality seems out of a movie, you should see our real movies. Cine Las Americas International Film Festival, from the 21st to the 29th of April. Austin, Texas.

Full script of the ad in the original language
SFX: Musica ANN: Barbaridades de Latinoamérica. Usted está en una etapa mística. Va a una librería y descubre que en el altiplano boliviano hay avistaje de ovnis. Apenas aterriza en La Paz saca dos conclusiones: que la altura hizo de Bolivia un pueblo muy especial y que los efectos del apuntamiento realientan las neuronas por la falta de oxígeno en el cerebro. Aislados, solitarios y sin salida al mar los indígenas se mezclaron con todo lo que pasaba. Resultado autóctono: eurobolivianos, afrobolivios, boliasiáticos, arabianos y todo lo que empiece con boli y termine en ano, aunque suene feo. También hay menonitas que se mezclaron con los boli pero no con los anos... por razones obvias, claro. Entre las excentricidades de una sociedad tan culta y elevada como la boliviana se destacan los 37 idiomas oficiales, el té de coca y ser el único país del mundo que tiene una flota naval invencible... Está anclada en el lago Titicaca a 3800 metros de altura. Ya sabe, si decide invadir Bolivia antes deberá ser educado y pedir permiso para llevar sus naves de guerra hasta el lago. Ahora, bajo estas circunstancias estamos en condiciones de asegurar que si va a Bolivia, aunque no mastique hojas de coca, es posible que usted... vea extraterrestres. Si nuestra realidad latinoamericana parece película, imagínese las películas. Festival Internacional Cine Las Américas. Del 21 al 29 de abril. Austin, Texas.

Brief Explanation
An ironic radio broadcaster speaks to his version of the ancient history of Latin America all the way to present-day, meanwhile keeping a very serious tone throughout.
