Oh those crazy Germans!

This is a commercial for canned German coffee. At the end, it says "You were never so awake!"

Crazy, indeed! That monster/zombie thing at the end looked like one of the customer's that frequents Chez Anvil on a certain morning bartender's non-fabulous, trash-n-troll shifts.

Wonder where they found a part of the Swartzwald still intact to shoot that?

Germans are not known for their subtlety. Rowan Atkinson as Black Adder (series III) point this out in this exchange:

Blackadder : Caroline of Brunswick is the only available princess in Europe.
Baldrick : And what's wrong with her?
Blackadder : Get more coffee! It's horrid! Change it! Take me roughly from behind! No, not like that, like this! Trousers off! Tackle out! Walk the dog! Where's my presents!
Baldrick : All right! Which one do you want me to do first?
Blackadder : No, no that's what Caroline's like. She is famous for having the worst personality in Germany, and as you can imagine, that's up against some pretty stiff competition.
