Forza Horizon 2: Prisencolinensinainciusol by Adriano Celentano

Prisencolinensinainciusol by  Adriano Celentano
I posted this earlier, but something caught my ear while watching Sons of Anarchy. An ad showed up for the game Forza Horizon 2. They played the song from above in the ad.  I laughed realizing someone on the XBOX marketing noticed the meme for this song and put the song of gibberish in their ad! Or I hope they realize the song is total nonsense on purpose to sound like English words.
Here it is
Here's an amusing attempt to translate the gibberish. And, it is nice to see other people notice this silly song.
The story behind this 70-ish song is rather funny too. From, (("So at a certain point, because I like American slang — which, for a singer, is much easier to sing than Italian — I thought that I would write a song which would only have as its theme the inability to communicate," he says. "And to do this, I had to write a song where the lyrics didn't mean anything." ))
Well, you pulled it off, brother. Also, this guy is now in his 70s. And, yes, he literally made this stuff up on the spot.  Heck, I like the damn song.  
There are a few amusing translations out there.
Celentano did a “Hip Hop” version with real lyrics and gibberish from the original song.

Here's Will Smith's encounter with the song...
