German ukulele commercials, song in Plattdeutsch

15 2009

A funny German contest caught my attention last week. To participate, people had to create a commercial for the ukulele. The video had to be no longer than 1 minute and to make people feel like playing the ukulele.
Here is the winner video (don’t try this with your ukulele):

In this next video the commercial is trying to convince the unsuccessful guitar player to switch over to playing the ukulele.

Not part of the same contest, but here is another German ukulele commercial featuring children playing the ukulele : ukulele is the answer to everything !

And finally, while we are in Germany, here is an old traditional folk song in Plattdeutsch or Low German, a dialect spoken in Northern parts of Germany and in the Eastern part of the Netherlands.
