Dutch ads

Not particularly ‘Eindhoven’, but just generally Dutch and very funny. This ad for wind energy showcases the ability the Dutch have to laugh at themselves, and in this instance, how they occasionally quite absurdly misuse English (particularly older speakers). It cracks me up every time. It basically says that the Dutch language has a lot of sayings with “wind” in it, because Holland has lots of wind. And naturally, more energy. Ach, it doesn’t matter what the ad’s about. It’s just hilarious.
