Jon Bon Jovi: Yes, yes but I'm sorry, I don't speak Italian.

Vinny Vedecci: But you are Bon Jovi.

Jon Bon Jovi: Yes, but I was born in America.

Vinny Vedecci: No italiano?[Vinny is mad as hell. Turns to his director]Bisiano, carabin, decanto!

[Show's director has big mustache, glasses and smokes and eats at the same time a plate of spaghetti, his assistant just eats his spaghetti]

Show's Director:[resumes eating]Eh, Bon Jovi, huh!

Jon Bon Jovi: You wanna keep going?

Vinny Vedecci: Si, si, si.[slowly]Where in the Americas are you from, Bon Jovi?

Jon Bon Jovi: The Stevie Van Zandt character.

Vinny Vedecci: Yes, yes, yes. Sylvio, Sylvio, Sylvio,[perfect impression of Sylvio from The Sopranos]Hey, Tony. I thought we were gonna have a meeting, Ton. I think we should have a meeting, Ton.

[Applause for Vinny. Vinny smiles big. Even Jon Bon Jovi is impressed]

Jon Bon Jovi: That's amazing! I like that.

Vinny Vedecci: You remember Paulie Walnuts?

Jon Bon Jovi: Yes, of course.

Vinny Vedecci:[to his director]Seriato, seriato Paulie Walnuts.

Show's Director: Que cosa? Paulie Walnuts, Paulie Walnuts....[another perfect impression] You know what to do in a time like this Ton? You send a message. You send a message and you start a meeting.[Applause]

Vinny Vedecci: Next question. Blaze of Glory.

Jon Bon Jovi: Yes, that's one of my favorite songs.

Vinny Vedecci: Si, si. Very good song. Here it is best known for commercial jingle.

Jon Bon Jovi: A jingle? I didn't know that.

Vinny Vedecci: Si, si, si. Caraoando, clip, caraandeande.

[Cut to a clip of a cigarette commercial. Blaze Populare cigarettes. Song plays and the kids light up their ciggies. They talk and share while enjoying the Blaze Cigarettes. Even a nun lights up and pats the kids on their heads. Song continues "Going down in a blaze of glory , take me down the road of truth..." Cut back to the studio]

Vinny Vedecci: Blaze Cigarette Populare![hold the pack up]

Jon Bon Jovi:[outraged]Are those cigarettes for kids?

Vinny Vedecci: No, no, no. 7, 8 years old. Men.

Jon Bon Jovi: I never gave my song to that company.

Vinny Vedecci: But you are spokesman.[On the other side of the pack there is Bon Jovi's smiling face with a cowboy hat on]

Jon Bon Jovi:[more outrage]When did this happen?!

Vinny Vedecci: Oh, next question. Dead or Alive.

Jon Bon Jovi: Yeah, the song Dead or Alive. What about it?

Vinny Vedecci: It's a song about a robot horse.

Jon Bon Jovi: No, you mean that line "on a steel horse I ride".

Vinny Vedecci: Yeah, steel horse, a robot horse.

Jon Bon Jovi: No, no,no. Steel horse is a reference to a tour bus. The bus bands ride on.

Vinny Vedecci: Not a robot horse?

Jon Bon Jovi: No.

Vinny Vedecci: Oh, bisiando.[Vinny signals to someone behind Jon to quit it. Its a guy dressed as a robotic metal horse. Jon looks back at the robot horse as he leaves.

Jon Bon Jovi: You know what? I really gotta go call my lawyer cause I'm pretty upset about that kid's cigarettes.

Vinny Vedecci: Oh, si, si. Blaze![again holds up the pack] Cigarette con divo Bon Jovi!

Jon Bon Jovi: How did this happen?!

Vinny Vedecci: Si, cigarette! [Humming the introduction to Bon Jovi's megahit "Living on a prayer"] Uhah, uhah, uhah, uhah, uhah.

Jon Bon Jovi: You don't really want me to sing now, do you?

Vinny Vedecci: No, no. I will.[Sings the chorus]Oooohh coristicon lates....[signals the director]

Show's Director: Oohh! ooh!

Vinny Vedecci:[sings] Sico decolate! Diseco, doriti colate!

Show's Director: Ooh! ooh!

Vinny and the Director:[sing together]Diso de colate-e-e-es!!

[Applause. Vinny laughs very satisfied]

Jon Bon Jovi: I gotta tell you Vin. You know, I mean my grandmother spoke Italian around the house when I was a kid and I don't recognize a single word you said all night.

[Vinny freezes along with the director and his assistant for a few seconds]

Vinny Vedecci: That's all the time tonight. Thanks to my guest Jon Bon Jovi. I'm Vinny Vedecci. Good night.

[Vinny gets up and dances with robot horse]
