Good to meet you: Prince Erkan Serce

Today's post is dedicated to the totally brutal Rae. Were it not for her, I would never have discovered the wonder that is Prince Erkan Serce.

Although I speak neither Turkish nor German, the glory of the Prince transcends mere linguistics. To opt out of watching these clips because you don't speak the language would be kinda like saying, "Hey! It's a unicorn! Too bad that, because I don't understand the noises it makes, it holds no appeal for me whatsoever. Are there any clips on the YouTubes of teenagers whacking each other in the balls that I could watch instead?"

Even if His Royal Highness were not blessed with the lithe grace of a leopard, he would still be a mesmerising visual treat. Behold:

Now that you've watched these I think you'll agree that: (a) there are no words in any language to describe the Prince anyway; and (b) even if there were, you're too speechless to use them.


  1. I so thought this was going to be about Erkan und Stefan!

    Also, is that the Turkish version of Come Dine With Me? But based in Bremen?

  2. @ Rae: That's what I'M talking about!

    @Hula UK: I had to look up Erkan und Stefan on IMDB and am pretty much none the wiser. Hehehe. While I was drafting this post I put in a line about you doing some translating from the German for us, but then thought it cheeky and presumptuous. However ... [casually checks fingernails].

    "The Turkish version of Come Dine With Me, based in Bremen." I don't know, but if it is, then consider my tiny mind officially blown.
