Steve MacClaren: Note to self, you are not dutch
A brilliant example of an Englishman attempting to speak a foreign language… just talk a little slower, emphasise a few choice syllables with a raise in tone at the end of the sentence (so everything sounds like a question/ and or australian) and bob’s your uncle and Arnold van der Berg is your middle name.
The poor fella has taken quite a bashing. One comment underneath summed it up quite nicely, “I am thinking, how you say, what a tit, no?”
Stevie Mac, berk though he is, highlights quite nicely though our inane human desire of wanting to be part of a community or group. And this is what the internet has done brilliantly. In many ways it’s made us all so tribal by offering us so many choices and as networks get more and more niche in interest, the opportunity to appeal to these groups and work with them through the development of creative content becomes ever more real.
Yeh, yeh I know, tenuous link to social media, but this stuff is comedy gold…
