Odder than anything he ever did on python

Here’s John Cleese doing an ad for Tom Tom that I just don’t understand:

(Thanks, S.)

If he’s celebrating the concept of being free, even when he’s not, then what has that got to do with Tom Tom?

Is he celebrating the idea of how he might feel if he had a Tom Tom?

That’s strange.

Why not give him a Tom Tom and show him celebrating his improved life?

But then the song wouldn’t make sense, because it’s talking about wanting to break free.

They could change it to I’m Free by the Soup Dragons and Junior Reid.

Then it might make some sense.

It’d still be shit though.
