For Argentina, having the Olympics take place in London this year is a matter of national pride -- and not in a sports context. The Falkland/Malvinas Islands, which have been claimed by both the U.K. and Argentine governments as belonging to them, are the setting for a new spot by Y&R Buenos Aires.

In what can be characterized as a pretty bold move, Y&R and the Argentinean President's office sent Fernando Zylberberg, an Argentine athlete to train on the Islands for a week, without anyone noticing. And everything was filmed. Especially poignant is the shot where he kisses the ground while doing push-ups.
