Etsy's Super Bowl LVIII commercial takes viewers back to June 1885, when the Statue of Liberty, a gift of friendship from the people of France, arrived in New York Harbour. The Americans are delighted with their new objet d'art, but what to get the French in return? If they get it right, they could set a stereotype in stone.
When a young clerk suggests that Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi and company like cheese, it prompts the mayor to order a cheese board from the advertised website. It goes down well across the pond—but the gesture does cause Groundskeeper Willie to say, "Bonjour, you cheese-eating surrender monkeys!" almost a hundred years later.
