U.S.  Just saw last night during a golf match the most Leone-esque TV commercial I have ever seen.  It's a Michelob beer commercial, maybe for light beer.  Pro Golfer Sergio Garcia wears a spaghetti western outfit with poncho, acts like Eastwood's character, music very much like Morricone.  There are the close ups of the eyes, style intentionally copies Leone.  Garcia drops a golf ball and knocks the club out of opponent's hand.  Commercial ends with him saying something like "what would you expect from someone named Sergio?".  I've only seen it once, wonder if someone can find it and link it or upload it.

How appropriate!!

I mean for two reasons. First, Eastwood's an avid golfer and, second, because Eli Wallach says that Eastwood was fooling around with a putter on the set of THE GOOD THE BAD AND THE UGLY when the bridge was accidentally blown up (before the cameras were rolling), which means he was probably wearing the Blondy poncho and gear at the time!
