Congratulations wit yourrr occassssion

I need your help!

I saw and heard this advert on Dutch televison (RTL4?) for Tonny Keijzers auto’s (Tonny Keijzers autos) with some blonde guy (the owner?) singing something like “Congratulations met uwe occasion” (Congratulations on your used car). The Dutch word ‘occasion’ (yes, from the French adjective ‘occasion’ rather than the noun), rhymed with the English ‘congratulations’ when it shouldn’t, while the whole thing sounded like a hissing serpent trying to sing. The hissing refers to Dutch speakers who overpronounce the ‘s’ at the end of English words, instead of making it sounds like a ‘z’. I have this nagging feeling that since the AutoRAI (Car show) is over in Amsterdam that I won’t see it again (snif).

If anyone has any more tips/clips of what I know I saw at least once on Dutch TV, tell me about it!
