Here is a car advert location poser, in the tradition of the dam in spain on the Citroen "long way home advert".
Now that took some solving, except when our Mick the Maverick came on the scene and got it with his duck duck going!

So two items from this Superbowl advert from Porsche. No holds barred....if you know it off the top of your head great, but the dark arts are allowed..... have a go and dont give up! I know the answer to the bridge but not as yet the dam.

So the full video

Now the questions

Where is the Dam?

Where is the Bridge?

Now I will have to check that out Mick, but with such a swift response I think you must have a Dams of europe encyclopedia on your bookshelf.

Now the bridge must be a piece of cake for you....much the easier of the two I thought :-D

Yes, I see...you thought the question was "Who was the Dame?"

Well with Mick coming up with the dam so quickly...why not the supplementary...Who was the Dame?

Have you visited that fair city Mick or maybe even driven/walked over the bridge, paused for a selfie with the bridges most famous resident?

As a clue to others I can tell you why and when I visited said city. My father was a printer working in Watford and his company invested in three new offset litho printing presses. My father and two of his work mates were taken to the said city for training and he loved it so much he took the family there on holiday some years later!! :) My daughter now lives about 100km NNW of there!

Well I know the answer to that question. I have my doubts that even Mick the Maverick will be able to come up with the answer for that question,

Here she is in a Musikvideo.....not sure the Pickled Egg jukebox is ready for pop songs in german, but to be fair sounds like any other pop song churned out now, no better no worse than the rest.

Of course, are you familiar with her work? She will probably get a bit more after the Superbowl advert for Porsche which has "gone viral" apparently....no accounting for taste :-D . Rubbish storyline/acting but I like a bit of attractive scenery...

Indeed she can. A serious singer that doesn't mind sending herself up.

Her daughter seems comfortable with that too :)
