This is confusing me! Can someone Dutch help explain? I see that the ad is shot in Finland, and they speak Finnish from what I can tell. They drive an ambulanssi to the terveyskeskus and I even hear a woman over the radio say kaksi. However, the bike-guy says something that sounds like "ow (unintelligble) gebroken". Is he saying that he thinks his leg is broken in dutch to make it clear to the Dutch audience that he doesn't need the heart-machine? Or are we meant to deduce that the biking couple are Dutch tourists on vacation in Finland, and he is simply directing that comment to his gf?

To fall and break you leg in Finnish is: kaatua ja katkaista jalkansa

You speak Finnish too now? How's the Klingon coming along?

My bad......

I haven't contacted the head of the Klingon Language Institute for Dabitch, as I said I would.

I will be sending some email to him this week, so I should be able to let him know about Dabitch's interest in learning it.

Åsk - What would you like me to ask for you? Something like "Are there books available for study?", "What is needed to be trained in Klingon?", etc., etc???

I've always been rubbish at deciphering phonetic spelling, so are there any tapes I could get to hear how it's pronounced? :) Otherwise I'm a get something interesting to read and through that figure the language out kind of girl.

Only in Adland would a thread on a Dutch ad devolve into where to learn Klingon on tape.
