why did they build the great wall of china?

I love the advert on TV at the moment which has the little boy in the back of the car and his Dad driving. It is advertising broadband internet (find the right answers on the internet for your kids questions), their little conversation goes like this:

Boy - "Dad, why did they build the Great Wall of China?"

Dad - "Is was in the time of Emperor Nasi Goreng and it was to keep the rabbits out............. too many rabbits in China"

Next scene has the little boy standing up in front of his class mates about to give his talk on China. Oh no!

What a funny ad, I am sure most of you have seen it but it cracks me up everytime.

My wife + I love the ad too.

BTW - the Emperor he names is "Nasi Goreng" which is a type of fried rice.
