Polacy kradną w niemieckiej reklamie Media Markt

Polacy kradną w niemieckiej reklamie Media Markt



Co robią polscy klienci w niemieckim sklepie Media Markt? Uśmiechają się,
gratulują wyboru, a potem kradną obsłudze spodnie




W reklamie Media Markt Polaków jest trzech. Wyjeżdżają ze sklepu z pełnymi
koszykami, ale na bramce czeka ochrona. I wtedy rozpoczyna się polsko-
niemiecka konwersacja. Polacy zachwalają sklep (po niemiecku z bardzo
wyraźnym polskim akcentem), a rozmowa szybko schodzi na temat piłki nożnej -
jeden z Polaków cieszy się, że polska i niemiecka reprezentacja spotkają się
na boisku. Potem Polacy rzucają się Niemcom na szyje i po chwili oddalają się
w swoją stronę.

- Ci Polacy to jednak sympatyczni ludzie - mówi jeden z pracowników. -
Jeszcze mam zegarek - mówi pokazując przegub.

Ale niestety kamera pokazuje, że po wizycie gości z nad Wisły zostali bez
spodni. - Ich bin doch nicht blöd - Nie jestem głupi (niemiecka wersja
hasła "Nie dla idiotów") - komentują na koniec Polacy. W zeszły weekend
reklamę emitowała m.in. niemiecka telewizja publiczna ARD.

Wczoraj od rana Polacy i Niemcy zasypywali siedzibę koncernu e-mailami z
protestem przeciwko reklamie. W polskiej ambasadzie w Berlinie urywały się
też telefony. - Uznaliśmy tą reklamę za wielce niestosowną. Do kierownictwa
Media Marktu i telewizji wysłaliśmy listy protestacyjne - mówi zastępca
ambasadora RP Wojciech Więckowski.

- Nie chcieliśmy nikogo zranić ani przedstawić Polaków jako złodziei.
Chciałbym przeprosić tych, którzy poczuli się urażeni - wyjaśnił Gerhard
Taubenberger, rzecznik prasowy sieci.


I wonder what the upshot of this will be?

    I think it was a tasteless advertising campaign on behalf of the German parent
    company, in light of the current atmosphere of trying to improve German-Polish
    relations. This type of marketing has both serious business and political
    ramifications, and only complements existing stereotypes. It certainly isn't
    the way to increase its customer base in Poland. At least the ad got removed.

    Why not to advertise MediaMarkt in Poland showing some dudes dressed in Nazi uniforms and shooting the clients after buying some digital camera?

    Ah, you forget ... MediocreMarkt IS German. They are not exactly going to take
    the pisch out of themselves.

    That's true...

    So... maybe EMPIK could do something, maybe the same Nazi dudes burning some books in front of Palac Kultury.

    I really got upset with the stupid idea of those German guys... I guess it's the little Polish men in my heart protesting smile

    i think it shows that, in business as in politics, those with power can do what
    they like. then mutter a couple of lines of insincere apology and for them it'
    s as if it never happened...

    Well, I myself will be boycotting the media Markt group, which includes of
    course Saturn also.

    I may not go so far as to graphitise their postah reclames, or even to write
    what I mean by that in plain text in case people accuse me of egging the
    populace on to crinimal dammidge, but the idea has a certain appeal.

    I reckon they knew all that, and they wanted to make a provocative ad that
    would attract attention by getting banned or withdrawn.
    I'm also certain that if an ad had been withdrawn for stereotyping any other
    nationality, the Polish media would be full of pompous conservative voices
    complaining that the company was a victim of humourless political correctness.

    Be that as it may, they did not dare to stereotype "any other nationality",
    they invaded Poland.

    And this here screenshot of their website, appropriately lampooned by myself,
    shows just how truly penitent they are. (Best to download and then view at
    100%, as otherwise some satirical details may be missed...)

    A shocking stereotype of our German neighbours smile
    Although it does remind me of that Pope joke that was popular last week.

    Yes. And also we Danes shall not easily forget how Lord Nilson bombarded
    Copenhagen!!!!

    I wouldn't do that! But maybe Lort Nelson.

    (You will need a good Danish dictionary to understand the above).

    Anyway - I'm still waiting for some kind of excuse from the English
    participants of this forum. We had a lovel vity and a love fleet - and then
    this Lort turns up......

    Hmm - I don't know what happened to my new cordless keyboard from Media Markt.
    It was supposed to be: We had a lovely city and a lovely fleet.

    And you were saying how happy you were with your "shoppings".

    Some ruddy kraut has nicked bits off it, that's what it is.

    The English attacked, bombarded or invaded more or less everyone, so maybe
    that's why they're always so quick to point a finger at the Germans.

    By the way on Saturday I bought a new Pentium D computer, 19 inch flat screen
    and a 40 GB Sony Walkman in Media Markt. I’m very happy with my shopping’s. If
    the Germans think it’s funny with a little joke about Poles then I couldn’t
    care less. The Poles take themselves much to seriously.

    They may do, but I think that the Germans ought to have, if only for historical
    reasons, a little more "pokory", and I'm not referring to Kashmiri pastry
    recipes.

    It wasn't the Poles who tried to steal German people's trousers, it was
    German's who stole the clothes of Polish people, and even their gold teeth,
    having gassed them in Auschwitz - Birkenau, and various other places.

    If they like being reminded about that, then let them go ahead and be
    insensitive about other nations, and we'll see who cries first.

    100% agreed.

    I've said it before, but I think it is disgusting Germany's treatment of Poles
    in not allowing access to their job market (now extended to 2009). Their
    memories are too short!

  • 29.03.06, 21:14
    you can watch more of their adds there:

    www.mediamarkt.de/fanausruester/spots.php
    as all of them are trying to poke fun at various nations, none is as (if at
    all) offending as the "polish" one (which btw is missing form the download
    list)... anyways... i don't care about it much, just wouldn't buy from that
    store...and yes, i love to write angry emails...

    Typical German sense of humor - crude and heavy minded. If it's not shocking,
    unsophisticated and right in your face, then it's not considered funny. It's
    bad taste advertising and I have never seen anything like this before.
    I am with the Polish people on that one.
  • 30.03.06, 09:06
    This MerdaMarkt (for those who know Portuguese and Spanish understand the joke here) managers must be complete imbecils to agree and to pay for such an idiocy, like kylie said it is indeed the typical German sense of humour rulling, lot of easy jokes, playing with the stereotypes of certain cultures and not giving a damn if those people will be offended.

    Probably this has more to do with the target they want to reach, drunk, rednecks, ignorants...

    As usenetpost said "MediaMarkt Nie dla Polaków" and "nie dla Portugalczyków"
  • 02.04.06, 19:52
    good portupolaco you are our man. fucking nazis!
  • 02.04.06, 19:56
    I don't disagree with what you said, as such, but I'm afraid this is a family
    show. The "f" word ought not to be used. Next time pick a milder word, or I
    will have to squelch your post, and I don't want to have to do that.

    Local councillor Adam Warzecha also decided he was offended by the ad, and
    stupidly wrote to the Katowice branch of Media Markt demanding an explanation.
    Obviously they couldn't give him one, but he's from PO, so the Wyborcza printed
    a photo of his smiley face anyway.
