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.

                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.

        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.

      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...

      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.
