The ugly GermanJanuary 5, 2007 at 6:16 pm | Posted in Comedy, Entertainment, German | 2 Comments
I’ve got the dreaded lurgy, and hence wasn’t very productive today. Also won’t be too productive on the blog work today (with the exception of posting comments). Just a brief introduction of Horst Schlämmer, Germany’s latest top notch comedian. The new star is actually an old one, it’s Hape Kerkeling performing as the lead journalist of a fictitious provincial newspaper. As such, he is another reincarnation of The Ugly German. In the spot below, he is trying to make a move on Claudia Schiffer during Germany’s flagship TV show Wetten dass. While the audience seems to know him well, she has apparently no idea of currentg German TV idols and seems to take offence… I guess her PR manager wasn’t delighted.
