TP - the fact that you're from germany is probably a big stumbling block too.

It's basically the thick accent, the blundering through popular phrases, and (for me), the making fun of all the stupid shit people do to their cars that makes it funny.

If you have a german accent, the exagerated german accent will probably be much less entertaining

as for 'wazzzzup'......not much to get. stupid people being.....stupid.....

Hm... you know I'll laugh at "vhat is it with my accent?" as much as the next guy,
but maybe I'm indeed hearing so much of the most important international business language ("bad english") that I'm
not able to laugh at it any more

Hey, but the little catapult is cool - I want one!

Don't feel badly TP. The term "un-pimping" is funny. The ads are not, really. VW has done better.
