Congratulations wit yourrr occassssion – part 2

Filed under: — Natashka @ 11:09 am

UPDATE: The television jingle goes “Congratulations, met je occasion, want een betere (something) vind je niet” (or something like that).

“Congratulations, with your used car, ’cause you won’t find a better one anywhere else.”

The big deal is besides the nasty Dunglish jingle and the happy smiling sales people the Dutch just don’t have local advertising on national television the way you would see in the US or Canada. Advertising is usually done by multinationals and this guy’s been going strong on prime time television for at least two weeks! He gets points for that from me.

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!
