Centraal Beheer Birdie

Dutch insurance company Centraal Beheer Achmea recently ran “Birdie”, a commercial presenting a farcical tragedy set in an American car show. The Centraal Beheer Birdie commercial features two young men who solve their parking problem by using the lowrider technology on their Ford Thunderbird 1965, squeezing under a fence. During the Chicken Dance the guys discover that the crowd is very excited about the arrival of the big Birdie. What is the Birdie? Another good reason to call Centraal Beheer.
