Little Gems – The best Commercials

In Germany, just as in the US, television and commercials go hand in hand. Most of the time TV-ads make you want to change channels or press mute. But if you take a closer look, you can discover little gems.

BVG – Next Stop: World Cultural Heritage

With a lot of self-irony and humor, the BVG (Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe) uses its commercial “Next Stop: World Cultural Heritage” to explain to us why it is a real landmark of Berlin and deserves to be a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The commercial leads us through the Berlin subculture with comments in the best “Berlin slang” and describes the city’s peculiarities in an amusing way.

Netto and Tabaluga – So That Children Can Achieve Anything

Children in power! Astronaut or activist, Pope or politician, children can achieve anything if we support and encourage them to believe in their dreams. With its commercial “Netto and Tabaluga - So That Children Can Achieve Everything,” Netto Marken-Discount supports the Peter Maffay Foundation, which advocates for disadvantaged children. The commercial, with the song “Nessaja” by Peter Maffay providing the musical background, puts the children at the center of the action and wonderfully illustrates the limitless possibilities of our children.
