I liked it I guess, but I didn't get the thing with the chocolate.

Did Coffee Guy write a secret note in one,and then reseal it to give it especially to Hot Chick?

Or do those come with a fortune-type note, and if so, why did he rig up a ton of them to flutter down onto Hot Chick?

Imported From Italy, Baci Chocolates Have Become a Token of One's Love For Nearly 80 Years

"Dammi tanti baci," Italian for "give me many kisses," is where it all began. While chocolate says romance in any language, Perugina’s Baci chocolate is romance.

Perugina, an Italian tradition of passion and style, began in 1907 as a labor of love between Giovanni Buitoni, the young heir to Perugina, and Luisa Spagnoli, a confectioner in her own right, in the charming and ancient Umbrian hill town of Perugia in central Italy. The two kept their love a secret, and Luisa continued to create many of Perugina’s truly indulgent chocolates, building Perugina into one of the most successful confectioners in Italy.

In 1922, Luisa created Baci, Perugina’s signature product. Imagine a woman so enchanted with love she would send secret love notes wrapped around her chocolate confections. Luisa’s passion inspired a tradition. Each Baci, which means "kisses" in Italian, with its creamy dark chocolate and rich hazelnut center, comes wrapped in a poetic love note in four languages describing the course of love—a true gesture of romance.
I can be a romantic guy, AND keep my man card. I thought it was well done. Besides, that mushy crap pulls the trim, ya know?

If you didn't know the concept of the chocolate, how would you have made any sense out of that commercial? Or is this Baci chocolate just well known in the US and I'm just not up on the latest chocolate news?

The guy who needs his "man card" is our lever-pulling, coffee-serving friend in the commercial. He pulls the lever, and she looks... impressed, I guess.

So what does he do? He avoids her eye contact and acts like the bar needs some extra scrubbin'? C'mon, bro, make your move!

I lived in England for a few years so maybe I took for granted that most people would know.

While it's true most of the free world knows Save Ferris lived in England for a few years, the packaging of Baci chocolate is not as well known.

I can see how women would find it romantic.

I think guys would enjoy the romance of it more if a bunch of chocolate balls came down on her.
