as to this commercial: I think the German guys just forgot to push the handbrake. Is it about that, or I don't understand ?
Genau! That was it...I dunno why some Poles are so hypersensitive!

Two weeks before the long awaited match between Germany and Poland at European Championship from Munich started tiny provocations.
In Germany so it was recorded a TV commercial which portrays on an old stereotype about Poles in Germany as car thieves. In the commercial it was shown a group of German fans on the way to the Euro, to which the Poles, during p-i-ss pause, caused probably by over consumption of large quantities of drunk beer, Poles steal their automobile.
Polish society unanimously condemned this type of propaganda and called it as a continuation of stupid German jokes on account of Poles, as the one that Polish Tourist Organization German tourists lures with a slogan: "Come to Poland, your automobile is already here."
Especially rough was the reaction of the former Polish national team goalkeeper Jan Tomaszewski who stated that "this kind of commercial can only be imagined and recorded by a son of a who-re."
"This commercial is an insult for all Poles and I cannot see what is in it funny. This is a stupid joke to which our Football Association must react." stated Tomaszewski.
