La llama que llama (in English)

More on Lu's post:
1st: this is the link
2nd: "La llama que llama" was a very successful series of ads on TV in the 90's. They took advantage of the fact that "llama" means the name of the andean animal but also means "call". Therefore, "la llama que llama" means "the llama who calls". The ad was from Telecom (a telephone company, like Telstra) and they were advertising the very low rates for long distance calls.
Those ads are a very good test for the non native speakers (and also for the non-argentineans) for checking their ability for understanding the jokes.
