This commercial shows just one of the many reasons why everyone should learn english as a second language. It’s just established as the language of the world. Although the french still want to speak french even in business relations…
Anyway I’ve never seen that commercial on german television, although it is supposedly a german production. They only show the worst commercials on TV here nowadays.
So without further ado here is the brilliant ad (I’m still laughing after watching it 5 times in a row):
And for you non-german speaking folk out there, the translation what the old guy says:
“Das hier ist mein Sektor” - “This here is my sector”
“Das hier ist das wichtigste Gerät des Küstenwächters” - “This here is the most important device of the Coast Guard”
“Das Gerät und das Gerät” - “That device and that device”
“Überlebens… Radar” - “Survival… Radar”
