Cleese in Poland

The great thing about living in a foreign country is getting a kick out of English-speaking actors and actresses coming to your country to do an advert. This recent one had me in stiches. Classic! (Thanks to Polandian for providing the inspiration).

Whilst in Japan I had the pleasure of seeing some brilliantly awful ads:

Here’s another bad one…

    oh man this made me laugh! Particularly as the process of getting a loan out of WBK about 2 years ago was a complete farce. Basil would be proud of them…

    “back of beyond”ūüėÄ can’t stop laughingūüėÄ Ur even better than him.ūüėČ
    I bet you at least know how to say “Good morning” in Polish, don’t ya?ūüėČ

  8. Raf Uzar says:

    Not “Guten Morgen”?

  9. martiga says:

    and why do they always have to yell ?!

  10. Raf Uzar says:

    It’s German! You always have to shout when you speak German.ūüėČ

  11. martiga says:

    ūüėÄ agree. But I meant Japanese people actuallyūüôā

  12. Raf Uzar says:

    In adverts, yes…

  13. island1 says:

    Of course you could never get away with the ‘shouting German’ stereotype in an ad on UK television. Thank heavens there’s still a part of the world where being rude about the Germans is still acceptableūüôā

  14. Raf Uzar says:

    Chortle, giggle, titter.ūüôā

  15. emz says:

    If I remember correctly the ad with Cleese was shot in the US…ūüôā
