In 1996 or 1998 - I cannot precisely remember myself - I wrote and realized this commercial for a fictional funeral company called "Mr. Sandman's Finest Funerals". It was very hard to get it on air. I discussed this matter with a news channel. They were not interested in broadcasting it at all: "You know, we are a news channel. We cannot have that!" said the woman from the advertising sales department. I replied: "You know, there is one big thing funeral companies and news channels have in common and that is that they are making money with other people's death." End of discussion. At least MTV EUROPE was so nice to broadcast it - only once - in the middle of the night. Enough to be noticed and screened again: in "Frontal". I am pretty far away from criticising the attractive TV presenter but I cannot help doing so because this is NOT a "Swedish ad". It is a result of pure German sense of humour. I feel very, very, very sorry to say so! Thanks for listening Hamlet Hamster By the way: Director of Photography was Michael Göbel
