Mar 17, 2016 Satirical Song Erdowie, Erdowo, Erdogan | Extra 3 | NDR. Turkish subtitles

UPDATE: The Turkish state is pushing to have a satirical video mocking president Recep Tayyip Erdo─čan banned in Germany, summoning Germany’s top diplomat in Turkey the foreign ministry for a dressing down. The catchy “Erdowie, Erdowo, Erdogan [Erdo-how, Erdo-where, Erdo─čan]” song was shown on March 17th by Germany’s public broadcasters NRD, on their satirical extra3 show. However, the video appears to have bruised the ego of Turkey’s Islamist president, and German Ambassador Martin Erdmann was ordered to “justify” the comical video during a lengthy discussion in the Turkish capital last Tuesday, Spiegel reports. Following the talk, the Germany Foreign Office Tweeted last night: “In his talks at Ministry of ForeignAffairs #Turkey, GER Ambassador made clear that freedom of press+speech must be secured”.
