Did you like the last Shell Schumi ads we brought you? The commercials hit the German airwaves after the seven-time world champ retired, and we brought you episodes 1 & 3. Now, episode 2 has found its way onto the net, thanks to the same intrepid German fan.

This one features Michael standing like a cut-out of himself in the store at a Shell station, patiently holding his ground while the retail muzak plays. Well worth watching just to see how many Deutsche motorists do a double-take. Would you believe your eyes if you saw Schumacher standing in the corner of your local gas-n'-go?

      This wasn't filmed in Germany. What the guy at the end says "isch er aecht?" (aka: is he real?) he says in the Swiss dialect of German. Since the Germans find that dialect laughable, I doubt that they'd like it too much.

      Hiho,

      greetings from germany, just wanted to say that I doubt that those commercials were produced for Germany. First, I haven't seen them on tv yet ^^ and second ... they would never create a commercial with english text for german TV .... Hey they even Translated Borat.... somethings wrong in this country xD

      anyway, good stuff, bye

      So what I'm saying is that this is from North Switzerland and the dialect sounds like it's from Zurich (yes, I grew up there before I moved to the U.S.)

      First video was cool, but this one is a little to away from the reality.
