Sweet. Too t'sweet.

You ought to know it's a spoof as soon as you see Herr Fjuck using a rule as a straightedge. His glasses, on the other hand, are perfect. But my favorite is Hans the assistant. He's got nothing on Terri Garr as Inga---but what a great false beard !

As usual, skip the comments---they aren't stupid enough to be funny, or clever enough to be laudable. But the video itself is a hit---for me.

I don't have a problem with the Alternatino piece---except that some of my favorite architecture is included ! :roll:
