Dirk Nowitzki gobbles deli meat in German ad

by Micah Hart

I don’t know how I feel about linking to a video that is mostly only funny because it’s in a language other than my native English, but there does seem to be something whimsical about this German ad featuring Mavs superstar Dirk Nowitzki:

This is actually a spot for ING, and I’m guessing if you speak German you might be able to make sense of the connection between baloney and online banking, but it’s cute no matter how you slice it. Oh, that pun was unintentional, but now that I see it, I’m leaving it in anyway.

    some thoughts from a german, who could maybe help:
    The point of this spot is “wenn du einfach mehr bekommst” – translated: when you simply getting more. Thats the connection between baloney and online banking. For Germans it`s a little bit funny because of the phrase they use in the spot an which we use to our children or to little adults with irony. The phrase could be translated: “thats for getting you big (in hight) and strong”. Dirk was getting big with 2,13m or 7 ft.
