A video by BuzzFeed about Italians' mostly stereoptypical habits has been met with a hilarious response in Italy.

For anyone who hasn't had the video, called 'Questions Americans have for Italians', clogging up their Facebook news feed over the past week, it basically involves ten or so Americans asking questions about Italy that tend not to stray very far from stereotype.

The probing and pointed demands involved such banal musings as “Do you guys eat pasta every day?” and “Can I actually see a Super Mario in Italy?”. Needless to say, it was hugely popular.

Irked by the popularity of BuzzFeed's viral video, many Italians have already posted videos on YouTube answering their questions. However, one new video is threatening to out-perform the original.

The Italian comedy group, The Jackal, has put together its own video list of amusing questions entitled 'Questions Italians have for Americans'.

The result was posted on Tuesday and dedicated to 'our friends at BuzzFeed'. It is an interesting window on how Italians see Americans.

The questions range from Italians' perplexity about American dining habits, to their obsession with fire arms and even the election of George Bush as President.

Answers on a postcard - or in a viral YouTube video - please.
