The EU’s body of ‘commissioners’ has put together a welcome message to Croatia, which joined the bloc today.
It’s a heartwarming multilingual display of Europe’s native tongues, except for Vivian Reding, the Luxembourger, who insisted on doing hers in English.
And Algirdas Šemeta, who does some ‘acting’ 45 seconds in [*important man gazes in to middle distance, as if pondering Europe’s future, then notices camera*]
Most notable, however, is Germany’s Guenther Oettinger, who delivers the creepiest welcome message ever. That man should not be instructed to smile. Ever.
Fast forward 23 seconds – if you dare – on the full version of the video here. Or see BM’s edit below:
