This TV commercial, that criticizes Nespresso for being one of the most expensive non-Fair Trade coffees in the world, made me laugh my pants off: click here.

Fair enough! But I guess you don't have to understand the commentary in order to appreciate the slapstick of the film.

The last word seems to be spelled wrong: Wenn sie nicht langsamer fahren, wird mir schlecht!  Google Translation: If they do not slow down, I feel sick!

Or, loosely translated, "If you don't slow down, I'm gonna barf!"

As I said up top, I don't speak German, so spelling it is pretty much right out. :-)
