John Fealey – Zakje

Due to being extremely busy this week I’ve not had much time to write or do anything remotely blog related. So to keep you entertain and to prove that I am still alive I present to you this very funny video a standup comedian talking about Holland. This is a great video if you have never seen it. It makes me laugh every time while also making me hate it for the fact that I didn’t come up with it first:

    This has been a long time favorite of mine. I love his take on the Albert Heijn ;-) Have a great week + weekend!

    Hilarious! I wonder if he can make ‘Scheveningen’ sound sexy as well… ;)

  3. Amanda says:

    John Farley is genius. The person who made the subtitles (someone at the broadcaster) is also brilliant! There are jokes that aren’t translatable, but he/she makes very funny jokes at other points that John Farley doesn’t make. Being a translator makes me appreciate the work someone put into that. Because it is very hard to translate jokes! Anyway, the zakje video has started to lead it’s own life on youtube, huh? It’s very popular. :) Probably because it’s so funny. :D

    Great to see another expat blogging about living in the Netherlands. The AH clip was on the button, loads of funny thing happen here as the Dutch have a completey different way of approaching life than anglo-saxens do. Thanks for the giggle :)

    Super duper thanks, if only veggie shopping was so funny here – no wonder I’ve got my first veggie garden at age 45. I can laugh at the results!

    Great vid clip – one that always cracks me up :)
    He’s also done one about Queen’s Day – generally listed under the ” related videos” on the main YouTube page for it. Sorry if you were saving that for another busy period, Stu!

    @kiki he does, doesn’t he? But Steve is funnier and more handsome
