When is patience a weapon?


The German government published the video clip #BesondereHelden on Saturday. This immediately went viral.

In the 95-second spot, the fictional Anton Lehmann looks back at his youth from the future. As a 22-year-old at the time, he experienced the Corona winter 2020. At that time, he actually wanted to celebrate, study, get to know people. But: "The fate of this country was suddenly in our hands." So you did the only right thing: «Nothing. Absolutely nothing. We were lazy like raccoons. "

The spot was circulated on Twitter by government spokesman Steffen Seibert. Countless retweets started within a very short time, also from prominent supporters. The reactions are divided, the comments range from “funny” to “tasteless”.

On Sunday the federal government published another version in which Anton Lehmann's wife Luise reminisces:

The two videos end with an appeal from the federal government: “Become a hero too and stay at home”.

The campaign was implemented by Florida Reklame in Berlin, the creative agency and advertising film production of the moderators Joko Winterscheidt and Klaas Heufer-Umlauf. (cbe)
