It’s a funny, well made advert, but yeah, it’s too bad for the English idiom.

English Rocker: Is it alright like this?
Dutch temp guy: For this time, I’ll see it through the fingers, eh.

I’m not sure if they used Dunglish on purpose, but my gut says they did, probably because although it’s mostly in English, it is aimed at a Dutch audience. And English is the language of the elite, not the help. But the roles are reversed, yada yada yada.
