Opel's emotional spot for Mother's Day

After the edeka-opa, now the opel-mom. With its new commercial, the car manufacturer is also focusing on an emotionally charged family atmosphere. Just in time for mother’s day there is now a spot that has nothing to do with cars, but all the more with sentimentality. The focus is on a man who, despite his enormous fear, trains again and again for a parachute jump. Why he does the torture to himself? For his mother.

She is in a wheelchair and in a nursing home. Your son’s secret plan: he wants to surprise you by jumping out of the plane together.



The idea works, the two-minute tv spot ends in a free fall and with the pathetic words: "she gave you life". Give her this day." Opel prints under the slogan #herzsprung powerfully on the tranendruse and hopes thereby probably a similar success as edeka to the christmas season with #heimkommen. It remains to be seen how rough the hype will actually become.

storm causes immense damage in habbergen

In the night to sunday, a violent storm passed over the county of habberge. There was immense damage. The most important thing: no people were injured, according to police spokesmen in wurzburg, habfurt and ebern. The regional focus of the storm was between 11 p.M. And 1 a.M. In the habberge district, the police prasidium in wurzburg announced in a summary on sunday. Fire departments, road maintenance, district and municipal building yards as well as the police were in constant use for hours to remove the consequences of the powerful thunderstorms. Fire extinguishers were not necessary, as no lightning strikes were recorded. Also no cellars were full. But there were plenty of covered roofs and fallen trees blocking roads. The storm also caused several accidents.
On two evenings, the air mass boundary appeared to pass directly over the county. While there was a natural spectacle with cloud lightning on friday evening, a violent storm followed late on saturday evening.

Shortly before despair

Police in habfurt paid about 150 calls during the night. On sunday morning, 20 more missions were added. In ebern, the officer on duty was on the verge of despair at midnight: "get off the line, every phone is ringing, message after message is coming in", asked our editor for understanding. Around 40 calls were received by the ebern police department within a few minutes.
The situation was no different at the fire department's alarm center in ebern, where a multi-headed staff led by district fire inspector rudi lubke tried to bring order to the chaos. Around 30 incidents occurred between 11 p.M. And 3 a.M. In the city of ebern and neighboring villages. A focus was the area of herbelsdorf – lichtenstein, where on the kreisstrabe a cab was wedged by falling trees. But no one was injured. Also at the youth campsite near reutersbrunn, where a beech tree fell on a tent, but there were no children in it.

German cars win in dekra used car report

Based on the main inspections (HU) of more than 15 million vehicles in the past two years. The study distinguishes between vehicle types from small to large and also divides them into three classes according to mileage. German carmakers dominate the individual categories and usually don’t give the competition a chance.

Of the total of 24 gold medals, 16 went to cars of german production – in other words, exactly two-thirds. "It’s not necessarily the first places that are decisive, but the overall picture of the front places as a whole," said dekra board member clemens klinke. It is clear that german carmakers set the tone in terms of quality.

However, there is one flaw in the german dominance: in the three tachometer categories of the small car class, the germans lose out. With two silver medals, the VW polo and the opel corsa at least halay salvage the balance sheet. But the japanese – honda, mazda, mitsubishi and toyota – not only take two gold medals, but also five out of nine podium places. The ford fiesta (gold) and the skoda fabia (bronze) are also in the running.
