How Do you Say “Embarrassing” in German?

As if Mondays weren’t depressing enough, I’ve stumbled across something would make anyone want to drink alone in a dark room. And then have their child record them eating a cheeseburger. And post it on YouTube.

David Hasselhoff is now starring in a German Lean Pockets commercial. The first thing I noticed was that The Hoff’s face seems to be morphing into a hybrid of Barry Manilow and Bruce Jenner.

And it only goes downhill from there.

I have more money than you!

As of this blog post, the above steaming pile of “schei├če” has almost one point five million views. A good investment by the client? Perhaps. But I would guess the folks who are watching the video are less potential customers and more just there to watch the┬átrain wreck.

The agency who did this spot was not mentioned anywhere – and I can’t seem to track down that information. If you happen to know, please leave a comment below so I can judge them silently.
