Merkel and Sarkozy's "Dinner" becomes cult net hit
Text size Aa Aa

A German reworking of a 1960s British comedy sketch has become an internet hit.

The original Dinner for One is already cult viewing on New Year’s Eve in Germany and many Scandinavian countries.

In the new version, renamed “the 90th Euro Rescue Summit or Euros for No-one,” the heads of Nicolas Sarkozy and Angela Merkel have been superimposed on the 18-minute film’s two characters.

Merkel plays the original 90-year-old Miss Sophie in assuming her friends are there but talks of the former Greek and Spanish prime ministers. She also reprimands an absent British prime minister saying that German would be spoken at the table.

And true to the original, Sarkozy the butler ends up worse for wear having drunk for all his mistress’ guests, and then he is warned by Merkel to think about his credit rating!
