"Introduce your friends to a little German."

(click image)
He's not a puppet. No, he's supposed to be a live, little German man. Jesus, this is fucking weird. There's even Web video spots at the site littlegerman.com. Well, I guess if you're selling a German Riesling, you want to make sure we remember German. They should put him on the bottle though, because after seeing this ad, there's no room left in my mind to remember the brand name.

I'm so flummoxed and flabbergasted...it must be brilliant. I can't stop looking at it. So old-fashioned, it's like a George Lois ad.

This is def my new favorite ad.

It looks like Pinocchio with Geppetto's head.

The couple at the table seems to think it’s totally normal. I'd be wondering who the fuck slipped the acid in my wine.

Hey, if that’s what you’re into, go for it. Personally, Hervé Villechaize is more my type. That way I get the puppet thing and the value-add of the dead thing all in one.

Why is he being introduced on a platter? Is he part of the service as a bit of freak entertainment if the date goes bad?

How did America's "craziest ad guys" at Crispin not come up with this? It would fit perfectly with their insulting (well actually, just not funny) German characters in VW ads.

I'm pretty sure I saw the same ad a few years ago for a beer, except the little German was in the fridge.

The virals are a sad disappointment after the adorable charm of the print work...
