The ad, for the firm of Hannig, Ahrendt & Partners, is currently running in cinemas in Dresden.

Translation: "This wouldn't have happened with a divorce lawyer."

So, they're strongly targeting women.

Pretty uncomfortable for any married/engaged/LTR men in the audience.

May actually—long-term—hurt the firm's business.

Terrible sound effects, terrible fake blood.

Said Frank Hannig, the genius behind the ad:

"We wanted to show that we're a bit different, a bit unconventional, and not quite so buttoned up...We might have a problem with the bar association. I wouldn't have dared do it ten years ago, but everyone can see that it's satire."

Yes, satire. You're the next Jonathan Swift.
