Yes, it was all done on purpose, but there are quite a few grains of truth in this Dunglish festival.
Note the sibilance, when the letter ‘s’ sounds like a snake in an animation film trying to talk. The cure is to pronounce the ‘s’ at the end of a word like a ‘z’. Why they can’t seem to teach that in English classes is beyond me.
The assumption that people can only speak Dunglish is a bit annoying, but hey, then it wouldn’t be funny.
And the advert is full of cheese, windmill and herring clichÃ©s as well as the painful reminder that we really can’t live off wind energy. At the risk of sounding very 1970s, I still think nuclear energy is going to make a comeback.
