OK I put it in a Google Translator, this is what I got:

...and the Englishmen? Tja, employs itself always everywhere gladly.

And we Germans? We make everything to dearest at once"

I still don't get it.
 


Faith is deciding to allow yourself to believe
something your intellect would otherwise cause
you to reject -- otherwise there's no need for faith.

It is a commercial here for some online provider (I think) with that Franz Beckenbauer and he diggs out old prejudices. Pretty funny.

I could be wrong here, shocker, I know , but isn't comparative advertising illegal in Germany. I heard that somewhere and that kind of advert. strikes me as funny like that.

Comparative advertising is stuff like:
"Come to KFC, it tastes better than McDonalds".

Having Beckenbauer digging up some prejudices is not comparative advertising (unless he's trying to sell humans, and that in itself is already illegal)
