Same procedure as every year

Of course, there’s one thing you absolutely can’t miss out for New Year’s Eve…

Should I not be back by midnight, a happy new year to everyone.

    Happy New Year s/s and all your readers and posters. Although my parents were fans of Freddy I never remembered this sketch as an adult until I was in Germany and discovered its a cult there at Silvester.
    all the best folk, Harry

    It is very odd that this film is a massiive national institution in Germany

    Not only there. Norway too, I think Australia, and I’ve heard Bulgarian TV is showing it now.

    It’s no odder, really, than George and Mildred being an institution in Cuba.

    s/s and andy
    what I think is interesting is, as andy puts it, its an insitution, people sit down on New Years Eve to watch it. So how does a short sketch change from being a piece that makes people laugh in general, become a fixture of of the Silvester celebrations, there must have been a process. Why a non German sketch? What period of the recent past did it appear, some academic must have written on this, if not they should rather than all the other bollocks they study. Andy has it crossed to the former DDR yet? Or perhaps its already in decline in the “west”? OK maybe we shouldn’t analyse humor, but I do it all the time, after laughing, so again thanks for the chuckles. When I was in Germany a good few years ago all the young trendies (not just the left) drank in Irish pubs! Oh and do tell about George and Mildred.
