Barely two weeks in and if there’s one area where Trump is just YUGE: being the laughingstock of the internet. Of course, we did it best with the internetbreaking ‘Netherlands Second’. Which in turn sparked a White House petition, an ‘American teenagers react‘ movie and now freaking copycats from the rest of Europe. Well, as we say in Dutch ‘beter goed gestolen dan slecht bedacht’. Time to properly review these efforts.
Let’s start with the comic effort from Germany, because they’re always funny as hell right?
Okay so we thought this was actually pretty funny for German standards so maybe they can come third after the Netherlands? They do know how to build a wall and they did let Russia pay for it after all.
So let’s see how our southern neighbors tried to persuade the American president to choose a ‘second’ after America.
Luckily the Belgians noted they’re not convinced they should be second themselves so we think the Netherlands stil holds the first position for being second.
Maybe the Swiss can change this.
It may be that we are biased by the fact that we are Dutch, but we think we have a very good shot at becoming first second. Is it just us or are these rip-offs truly a lot less funny as the original Dutch version.
We have to admit.. The Danish make a nice effort to undermine our Dutch claim as second country after America.
That’s it for now! Which one did you like the most?
There are plenty of other movies coming in on ‘Europe Second in the next couple of days, so don’t forget to like DutchReview on Facebook for when we review and compile the next batch of movies!
