Greek ad makes fun of Strauss Kahn affair
09:47 CEST+02:00

A commercial for potato chips is the first to make light of the incident involving Dominique Strauss Kahn and a hotel maid (VIDEO).

In the ad for Jumbo potato chips, two well-known Greek celebrities play the roles of an older hotel guest and a maid. In the opening scene, the grey-haired man, dressed in a bathrobe, walks into the room and says "oh là là" as he spots the attractive maid. However, it transpires that his interest is apparently more in the potato chips than the woman in his room. 


In the final scene, the maid is seen eating them but says he won't get the chance. In Greek, this final phrase sound like 'troskan', a clear reference to the name of the former IMF director and Presidential hopeful.


The ad is running nationally on TV channels across Greece.
