Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez had a good laugh when he discovered that a Benetton advertisement shows him kissing his U.S. counterpart, Barack Obama.
Chavez said Tuesday the Italian fashion company should send him a tie for Christmas.
Chavez and reporters shared a laugh after a journalist showed him a picture of the advertisement.
Chavez said he wasn't offended.
The campaign's fake photos feature a half-dozen purported political nemeses in lip-locked embraces, including Benedict XVI kissing Egyptian Sheik Ahmed el-Tayeb and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu kissing Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
Chavez shrugged off the photo montage as "a good joke."
