It worked. I want to shop there now.

I waited for Herr Whipple to pop out from nowhere and say, "Bitte, das Klopapier nicht quetschen!" But then, I guess that would not be sexy at all.

I was surprised at just how much English there was in the ad. I know that advertising in Europe uses some English, but it hadn't really occurred to me how much they use.

IS he their version of the most interesting man in the world?

That was a zooper commercial made all the better at the 2min mark.

@Scotty: Yea, English (or what passes for it) creeps in all the time. The worst is when they transmute the word into Greek (knows as Greeklish). One of the most common comes from soccer (futbal), "shootari" (rhymes with Atari) or the single word "plyeahout".

Now that the Isuzu guy is no longer making commercials, I envision a race between DOs Equis and Edeka for the Most Annoying Pitchman in the World.

Patty, as usual got the idea. Only this guy has a sexier voice than the MIMITW. Anyone have a translation of the commercial, or should I ask my neighbor. I've almost gotten it figured out.

I interpreted that to mean "If you're over sixty and looking to get laid, possibly while eating baked goods or cereal, shop here".

Creepy pedophile guy is not making me want to shop there.
