10 Funny Language Learning Commercials

Published on 22 Nov 2022 / In Comedy

I put together ten of very funny commercials about learning another language. I hope you enjoy them as I did. Normally I ask the viewers to tell me in the comments which one they like the most to see which commercial is #1. Sadly, I can't do it anymore because the last name I counted deleted its comment, now I don't know which one was last. But judging by the last outcome and by the comments I respond to daily, the winner is the last commercial Budweiser/Bud light, “No speak English” + “Language of Love”.

These ads are included:

1. Soesman Language Institute, “A Day Trip” from 1998 (I want to f*** you in the ass, featuring the song by the Outhere Brothers from 1994) by Y&R Netherlands

2. Berlitz with its famous “German Coast Guard” / “We are sinking” from 2006 by the agency Bates United Oslo from Norway (Improve your language / Language for life)

3. Babbel, “Boss It At Work” / “Negotiator” (Learn English for Work)

4. Babbel, “Spanish Passion” from 2017 (Tell me more / Speak the language like you’ve always wanted to) with Mariona Borrell

5. Nintendo DS Language Course, “Airport”, perhaps from 2004/2005

6. Berlitz, “Automobil on Fritz” from 2012 - as I discovered years later, this one is actually a spec commercial by the director Justin Lutsky

7. Berlitz Commercial with “The Club” (Join the club), the music is "Pont des Arts" by St Germain

8. Nintendo DS Japanese TV Commercial (For here or to go) with Nanako Matsushima, perhaps from 2007

9. Berlitz with “Laundromat” from 2005 (Learn another language) by Dennis Liu

10. Babbel with “Undercover Agent” from 2017 starring Divian Ladwa, the "truth serum guy" from Ant Man, as the Undercover Agent - some viewers asked me if it's him, I wasn't sure, so I wrote him and he was so nice to answer and to confirm it: "It is indeed me" - kudos to Divian!


11. Anheuser-Busch Budweiser beer / Bud light with “No speak English” from the 2007 Super Bowl starring Carlos Mencia

11.5 Anheuser-Busch Budweiser beer / Bud light with “Language of Love Commercial” from 2008 starring Carlos Mencia
