What a story. I love it. Halfway I almost forgot that I was watching this on an advertising blog.

Not sure I get it but it's absolutely brilliant - excellent cast, direction and acting.

As a piece of entertainment it's fantastic, but I'm not sure it makes me want to get whatever it is they're advertising... a sports channel, is it? Maybe for those who know it in the Netherlands it is more effective?
