Video: The Germans take on the Greeks

Things are getting heated in the Greek sovereign debt crisis – with the main battle lines being drawn between Greece and Germany. There are a lot of stories in the German press about Greek profligacy and cheating (see German-language links below video). Then there are the stories about Greek boycotts of German products and the Nazis having stolen Greek gold.

So I thought this video might take the edge off all of that.

Hat tip Immobilienblasen.
